Roy Keane Isn't A Fan Of Alex Ferguson's Nepotistic Tendencies

Jonathan Northcroft has an excellent interview with Roy Keane in The Sunday Times.

During their talk the Corkman had a pop at Alex Ferguson's nepotistic tendencies at Man Utd.

His son played for the club, his brother was chief scout, his other son was involved in one or two deals. I think if his wife had any sort of coaching qualifications she’d have been on the coaching staff. Cathy, I think. He’d have found a role for her.


Keane also intimates to Northcroft that he believes one of Ferguson's failings as a manager was his man-management.

People always talk about Ferguson’s man-management. Actually I thought that was his weakest point. His team talks were brilliant, he recruited good players, he had good staff around him, he was ruthless and all that. But his man-management skills . . .

Some good lines from the from the former Man Utd midfielder there but the best one of the entire piece comes from the writer himself, saying Keane "still brings Ireland to a halt in a way of which Bono can only dream."
