Roy Keane has hit back at his former Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson and said he doesn’t “understand the meaning of the word” loyalty.
The former United captain was acting as a panellist for UTV this evening before the Arsenal v Borussia Dortmund game and was in typically combative mood.
“I remember having conversations with the manager when I was at the club about loyalty. In my opinion I don’t think he knows the meaning of the word.
“It doesn’t bother me what he says about me but to constantly criticise other players at the club who brough him success, I find very strange. But I won’t be losing any sleep over it.”
When asked whether he felt that criticising the likes of David Beckham was out of order – even if he has a book to sell.
Keane had a dig himself by saying: “I don’t think he needs to do that. I am not sure how many books he’s written at this stage but he has to draw the line eventually. A lot of these players helped him win a lot of trophies. You can only imagine what he would have said if we never had of won a trophy for the club. We brought success to the club. We gave it everything we had. It is just part of modern life now – people like to do books and criticise their ex players.”
