Heinze ends exit rumours

09 February 2007 08:31
Manchester United defender Gabriel Heinze has tried to put an end to speculation linking him with a summer move away from Old Trafford. The 28-year-old Argentina left-back has lost his first-team spot in recent times to Patrice Evra, but insists he is more than happy to stay put and fight for his place. He told MUTV: "I don't really take any interest in what is being said. "The only two people who matter are myself and the manager. If there is no desire on either of our parts for me to leave, that is great. "All I am concentrating on are the next three months, so I can fight as hard as I can to get in the side and do as much as I can for Manchester United." Heinze joined United in the summer of 2004 for £6.9million from Paris St Germain, but has made only 64 appearances for the Red Devils after being hit by a serious knee injury.
