Ruud United career over after walk-out?

LONDON, May 7 (Reuters) - Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy stormed out of Old Trafford after he was axed from the final league game of the season against Charlton Athletic on Sunday.

The Dutch striker went home after manager Alex Ferguson selected teenage Italian striker Giuseppe Rossi to partner Louis Saha up front.

"There has been a couple of issues during the week which concerned me in terms of the spirit at the club, and on such an important day I just felt Ruud should be left out," Ferguson told Sky Sports.

"It's straightforward. That's all we need to say at the moment, we'll be discussing it with the club directors tomorrow and Tuesday and that's it."

Van Nistelrooy top-scored again for United this season with 21 league goals but speculation has surrounded the Dutchman's future at the club with the 29-year-old apparently falling out of favour with Ferguson in recent months.

The striker has often cut a glum figure on the bench in the final third of the season with Ferguson preferring a rejuvenated Saha to play alongside Wayne Rooney.

Saha scored the opening goal to set United on their way to a 4-0 demolition of Charlton which secured the second automatic Champions League place.
