Former Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Manchester City defender on ex-Manchester United captain's latest comments.

Roy Keane's arch nemesis Alf Inge Haaland has been dragged back into the news by the Irishman released an updated version of his autobiography.

The former Manchester United skipper said he did not regret the rash challenge on Haaland which caused a knee injury, that the Norwegian credits with ending his career.

The pair had a long running on-pitch feud, with Haaland playing for Manchester City, Leeds United and Nottingham Forest.

Haaland, 41, has a Twitter account and has had to deal with enquiries from fans about Keane's latest comments, and naturally states he will not be buying a copy.


He courted real controversy however, by making a crude comparison between Keane and a former dictator.

The Mail report: "Asked what he thought of the comments by his former Norway teammate Egil Ostenstad on Twitter, Haaland posted a picture of a bearded Saddam shortly after his capture in 2003 with the message: 'cant take a man seriously when hes got a beard like...."

Haaland deleted the message, before taking another dig at the Irishman, suggesting he was a worse individual than the tyrant.


Perhaps it's time both take a step back, and move on from this feud once and for all...
