Manchester United: Fans far from complimentary about club legend

Manchester United fans have blasted former captain and legend Roy Keane after his outburst against former manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The ex-Ireland international accused the Scotsman of nepotism and waved away ideas the manager was a great man-manager (via The Telegraph).

Ferguson’s handling of other big-name departures was also criticised by Keane, with the former midfielder falling victim to an acrimonious exit himself.

Keane left the Old Trafford giants for Celtic after a fallout with Ferguson over an interview he gave about the performances of his teammates against Middlesbrough in 2005/06 season.

Keane has a fractured relationship with his former manager and was even blasted in Ferguson’s autobiography, which was released in 2013.

It seems the fans have picked a side, as they took to Twitter to defend their former manager from the outburst from Keane on Fergie’s man-management.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Old Trafford faithful:
