Loads of Manchester United fans have responded to Roy Keane’s latest comments to Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, via Sky Sports.
Keane has reignited the long-running feud with former manager Sir Alex Ferguson as the 48-year-old revealed Fergie and ex-chief executive David Gill sat him down and talked about ‘cash-flow problems’ on the day he left Old Trafford. He also gave his thoughts on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer targets and shed light on an amusing exchange with Wayne Rooney.
Speaking to the Sky Sports’ Football Daily show about pay cuts in the coronavirus pandemic, the club legend couldn’t resist taking a pot-shot at his old boss.
“Eventually after a few years, I signed a new contract, Man United sent out letters to supporters saying season tickets had gone up because of my contract.”
“The day I left the club, I sat in front of Ferguson and Gill, who discussed cash-flow problems. Brilliant. Brilliant.”
As things stand, it is quite clear the Irishman still holds a grudge and is reluctant to drop the dispute.
‘Keano’s 12-year-spell with United was abruptly cut short following an infamous interview with the official MUFC TV channel where he criticised a number of his teammates (Daily Mail).
The defensive midfielder arrived at Old Trafford from Nottingham Forest for £7.65m back in 1993, and went on to make 469 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 51 goals, producing 29 assists, winning the Premier League a staggering seven times, as well as being a part of the team that lifted the coveted Champions League trophy in the 1998/99 season, before leaving the club under acrimonious circumstances.
Naturally, loads of supporters replied to his fiery opinions on Twitter, with one fan describing his thoughts as “box office,” and another noting he is still quite “bitter.”
Take a look at some of the mixed reactions down below…

I dunno why they didn’t just tell him he had turned into a liability. Roy Keane is a legend, but he stayed at Utd too long by about 6 months
