Keane spits back at his former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson…
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has reacted to the serialisation of his ex-manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography.
Ferguson claimed that Keane intimidated the rest of the squad, and that he had to move him on for the good of the club.
Presenting the Champions League group tie between Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund, Keane was asked by Adrian Chiles what he made of the comments.
“In my opinion, Ferguson doesn’t understand the meaning of the word loyalty,” he said, before going on to question why modern sports people feel the need to write books at all.
In the autobiography, Ferguson also has very harsh words about David Beckham, Rafa Benitez and a whole host of others – and it has set the football world talking.
Roy Keane captained Manchester United to a treble in 1999, but the relationship between the two slowly deteriorated hereafter.
The Scottish boss managed the club for 27 years, and is the most successful football manager in the history of English football.
Keane’s playing career petered out, and he has since endured mixed managerial spells at Sunderland and Ipswich Town, before taking up his current punditry role for ITV.
