Montgomerie (right) insists he had not snubbed his predecessor Faldo (left)
Europe's Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie has insisted he will consult predecessor Sir Nick Faldo ahead of this year's match.
Faldo told newspapers that he had written to Montgomerie but had yet to receive any reply.
They did not meet up at this week's BMW International in Munich, even though they were both playing the tournament.
But Montgomerie said: "I will take the opportunity hopefully the next time we're together.
Faldo has played against the United States 11 times and is the record points-scorer in the match with 25, although Montgomerie could have overtaken him at the 2008 match, had he been included as one of Faldo's wildcard picks.
Europe's loss at Valhalla ended a run of three consecutive wins, and in the days following the match, Montgomerie said he would not necessarily have made the same choices as Faldo had he been captain.
"Certain things I would have been done the same and certain things I feel I would have liked to have changed," said the Scot.
"The line-up of the singles was very important being 9-7 down. Very important. It had to be absolutely bang-on right."
With this year's match taking place at Celtic Manor in Wales from 1-3 October, Montgomerie has already consulted Bernhard Langer, the victorious European captain in 2004.
Six-time major winner Faldo has also offered his expertise to Montgomerie, but was quoted in the Mail on Sunday as saying "I have not had a reply.
"I don't think I need say more than that. It says it all."
But Montgomerie said: "You learn from everybody and from every experience in life.
"I won't leave any stone unturned. I haven't and I won't."
