Gabriel Heinze feared he would have become the forgotten man if he had stayed at Manchester United.

The Argentina defender initially hoped to sign for Liverpool but United blocked the move, insisting they would not allow him to join one of their Premier League rivals, and he completed his move to Real Madrid earlier this week.

"I deserved better treatment after my efforts for the club," Heinze told the News of the World. "I had to leave because I am convinced (United boss Sir Alex) Ferguson would not give me a minute all season."
