Roy Keane: Sir Alex must say sorry first

Roy Keane says he would be happy to resolve his differences with Sir Alex Ferguson if the former Manchester United boss apologises.

The 43-year-old has previously insisted he would never forgive the Scot for comments made in his autobiography and he has once again spoken about the falling out, saying he will not make peace until he receives an apology.

“Well, it would be a cup of tea. If Sir Alex apologises, then yes, I would,” he told FourFourTwo.

“If Ferguson apologises I would be happy to move on… for Ferguson to badmouth me after I left, I think he does owe me an apology.”

Keane left Old Trafford acrimoniously in 2005 but he insisted that he loved the club during his time.

“It was never going to end as a pal’s act. I was never going to leave with champagne and flowers,” he added.

“I saw how Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce left the club, both decent United captains, and I didn’t like the way they left.

“If United fans say I had a decent career, then brilliant. If they want to say, ‘What’s gone on with Ferguson stuff?’ then f*** them.

“I’m not begrudging of Sir Alex and Man United, because let’s get this straight I had the greatest days of my life at United.”
