He also reveals that Ferguson told him that a number of the players that were successful under his reign at Old Trafford now had to leave the club.

"I met Alex Ferguson in the changing room on the Friday at Cheltenham before racing and I asked him what was going on and he was telling me about buying this fella and he bought the wrong fella and I said to him that I told you  five years ago you had to sell Nani and you wouldn’t," he said.

"A lot of the players are the players he inherited from you and he said ‘Yeah, a good few of them have to go but it all depends on what shopping he does in the summer’.

"To be fair to David Moyes, who wanted the job from Alex Ferguson. You’re on a hiding to nothing.

"How are you going to make it better... you’re not."

Walsh was speaking at an event to mark the eighth anniversary of Whitewater Shopping Centre in Kildare, which his father Ted attended.
