Former Manchester United ace refuses to back down over Fergie row

Published Add your comment

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has revealed he doesn't think he will ever speak to Sir Alex Ferguson.

The pair, who shared a fantastic relationship at Manchester United during the Irishman's career at the Premier League champions, fell out when Keane ended his 12-year stay at Old Trafford.

Ferguson, who criticised Keane in his autobiography which was published at the back end of last year, was disappointed with the way his former skipper publicly lambasted a selection of Manchester United's players.

The legendary Scotsman discussed the day in which Keane confronted him in front of his then Manchester United teammates and was subsequently moved on to Celtic after Ferguson had lost faith in the former Nottingham Forest man.

Keane, who has also ruled himself out of joining Manchester United's management team, said on his relationship with Ferguson: "Nah I'm not sure [if I will speak to Sir Alex].

"Probably not. But look I've said that about other people before.

"Football's a funny old game and you get a clash of personalities sometimes but it's something that's not on my mind at the moment to be honest with you."

Keane had previously been tipped to one day replace Ferguson at Old Trafford - but fell down the pecking order after failing to make a positive impact at Sunderland and Ipswich.

The 42-year-old is now said to be content with his role as the assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland under Martin O'Neill.
