Former Manchester United man Roy Keane has reignited his feud with Sir Alex Ferguson, claiming he wouldn’t forgive his former manager.
The legendary Scotsman has been retired for a few years now and underwent difficult health circumstances recently.
United have struggled to remain as a top Premier League side after Ferguson’s retirement with three managers failing to follow in his footsteps.
Now it’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s turn and unless he can put an end to his side’s poor form, he may follow suit.
Ferguson didn’t see eye to eye with the Irishman towards the end of his career so it’s no surprise to see the war of words continue.
According to the Mirror, Keane said: “I wouldn’t forgive Ferguson. The media spin, how I apparently upset everybody, it was all nonsense.
“I don’t care if it’s Alex Ferguson or the Pope, you’re going to defend yourself.
“People talk about Ferguson’s man-management. Nonsense. People said he always had the best interests of Manchester United at heart. Darren Ferguson [his son] won a medal. He was very lucky.”
Keane’s quotes were from a podcast with Off The Ball were he extensively discussed the end of his time at Manchester United.
It wasn’t the only time he criticised Ferguson and it’s unlikely to be his last despite there being hope there’d be an end to it all.
Keane’s words are a rather welcome distraction from United’s poor form of late so hopefully it continues to be discussed until the very last minute of international football.
Solskjaer needs to lead his side to a win after the break and he’ll have to do so against Harry Maguire’s former side in Leicester City.
