Roy Keane reopens bitter Man Utd feud with declaration about Sir Alex Ferguson's WIFE

Roy Keane has reopened his blistering war of words with Sir Alex Ferguson - expressing surprise that the Manchester United great didn't give his WIFE a job at the club.

The ITV pundit, who lifted seven titles and the Champions League under Fergie, said: “People said [Ferguson] always had the best interests of Manchester United at heart. Darren Ferguson [his son] won a medal. He was very lucky.

'[Alex Ferguson's] brother was the chief scout for Manchester United for a long time. I'm surprised his wife wasn't involved in the staff somewhere.”

Keane, who fell out with Ferguson before leaving United in 2005, attacked the Scot on the podcast.

Fergie’s son Darren picked up a Premier League winner's medal in 1993 after making just 15 appearances under his dad.

He went on to play in the lower leagues and in Europe with Sparta Rotterdam. Keane suggested he’d have been nowhere near the Premier League under any other boss.

Referencing Darren’s career as a manager, Keane went on: ’Darren was [the manager] at Preston North End and lost his job.

“He had a couple of young players on loan from Manchester United, [but] guess what happens the next day?

"They're pulled out of Preston. Is that doing the best for Manchester United? Do me a favour.”

Keane went on to accuse Ferguson of failing to stand by him in his hour of need and suggested the Scot’s famed man-management skills are overblown.

He added: “People talk about Ferguson's man-management. Don’t be kidded on by all of it.

"I was at the club when Bryan Robson left, when Steve Bruce left, two brilliant servants for Manchester United, and I didn't like the way they were treated."

Keane was sold after his infamous MUTV interview in which he criticized his team-mates.

It was seen as the catalyst for his mid-season exit but the former Irish captain remains bitter at the decision and said: "We'd had loads of heated discussions over the years.

“Sometimes as a team, but you've got to roll with that. We're grown men fighting for the same thing.

“There's going to be a bit of argy-bargy but I'm sure there are people here working in industries where things get heated.

"I didn't leave the office that day thinking this was the end of my career at Manchester United, but if you think I'm going to sit there, I don't care if its Alex Ferguson or the Pope ... I'm going to fight my corner.

"Ferguson came out afterwards and said he always did what was best by Manchester United. Nonsense.”
