Hargreaves storms out of Old Trafford

Owen Hargreaves stormed away from Old Trafford after being left out for Manchester United's last game of the season.

Owen Hargreaves stormed out of Old Trafford on Sunday after he was left out of the Manchester United team for the final game of the season, according to reports.

The midfielder's worst fears were confirmed yesterday when he was not included in England's 30-man provisional World Cup squad.

Hargreaves, 29, hoped to get at least 30 minutes against Stoke to show Fabio Capello he could do a job at the finals.

But there was no place for him in Alex Ferguson's 18-man squad and he left 50 minutes before kick-off.

United claimed Hargreaves' exit was due to illness.

But an onlooker said: "At about 3.10pm a member of the security team got into a grey Audi and headed for Gate 4B of the Stretford End.

"The way the car moved off, I thought it was one of the Glazers trying to get away.

But then Hargreaves appeared and he did not look happy. He didn't hang about long."

Hargreaves, who returned from a 19-month knee injury at Sunderland 10 days ago, was tipped to make Capello's squad.

But the Italian had a change of heart and has gone with Gareth Barry even though the Manchester City man is battling an ankle injury.
