Former Man United captain blasts ‘money making’ Roy Keane

Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson has hit back at Roy Keane for some unsavoury comments in his latest autobiography.

The Irishman hit out at his former Old Trafford team-mate in sections of his new book, The Second Half, as well as making comments about the club and former boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, Robson has hit back at Keane, saying that the former midfielder is deliberately causing controversy to ‘make more money’.

“Roy is just an example,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. “There are a lot of people doing that, they come out and criticise people in their books. Is there any need especially when you are making a great living out of the sport anyway.

“I think with the players of today and the standard and the money they receive, I don’t see why you write a controversial book and criticise people when you are only maybe doing it for the money.

“If you are doing a constructive book for the good of the game, which has given you a great career, then go and write a book, talk about your memories, your great times but these people who go and write just criticising people to be controversial, to sell more books and make more money, no I’m not for that.”
