A lot of water has passed under the bridge since Roy Keane was Sir Alex Ferguson’s midfield general for Manchester United.
Their relationship soured after Keane left United in 2005, which followed on from interviews Keane gave criticising his Red Devils team-mates.
It appears that the tension between the pair is still high, as Keane has teed off at Ferguson once again.
The Mirror’s Mike Walters has picked up Keane’s quotes from a TV documentary, to be aired on Tuesday evening.
The two words the manager spoke to me about, a number of times, were control and power.
That was how he worked: I think we can still see that now, even though he is not a manager—I don’t think that will ever leave him.
I think there’s a massive ego involved in that you have power and control over people - and you try to have it even when you are not working with them.
Ferguson is widely felt to be the greatest British manager of all time, but not in Keane's eyes.
When asked who was the best manager he played under, Keane replied: “Without a doubt, Brian Clough.”
Keane also added that he has started taking his son to watch United, but only because Ferguson is no longer in charge.
