Former Manchester United midfielder slams Ferguson for book claims

A select round-up of morning news relating to Manchester United

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s new autobiography continues to dominate the newspapers this morning, with the media having a field day with his headline-inducing comments.

However, one former player has hit back, with Roy Keane telling ITV, “I think I do remember having a conversation with the manager when I was at the club about loyalty. In my opinion I don’t think he knows the meaning of the word.”

Keane’s comments came after Ferguson criticised the Irishman and other former players, including Owen Hargreaves.

And in quotes published in the Guardian Keane also said, “It doesn’t bother me too much what he has to say about me, but to constantly criticise other players at the club who brought him a lot of success, I find very, very strange. I just don’t think the manager needs to do that.”

Well he is not the manager anymore. That mantle has been passed to David Moyes. And as he prepares for his side’s match against Real Sociedad in the Champions League this evening, the Metro reports that he has no intention of selling Javier Hernandez this January.

Despite the Mexican striker being left out for much of the season to date, Moyes has reiterated that he will play a big part between now and the end of the current campaign.
