Sir Alex Ferguson released his new autobiography on Tuesday, and Fergie was quick to criticize several of his former star pupils at Manchester United, most notably David Beckham, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney and Roy Keane.
While Beckham was chided for his celebrity status, and van Nistelrooy and Rooney for their unhappiness (you can read more excerpts from Fergie’s book here), Keane was predictably blasted for his temper.
According to Fergie’s book, Keane once “slaughtered” several of United’s senior players in an unreleased interview with the club’s in-house TV station MUTV, which angered Ferguson:
"It was frightening to watch. And I’m from Glasgow," Ferguson says. "He has the most savage tongue you can imagine."
Luckily for us, hours after the book was released Keane was scheduled to join ITV’s Champions League coverage, giving the former midfield hothead a perfect platform to respond to Ferguson’s criticisms.
We’ll let you watch Keane’s full reaction below, but undoubtedly the haymaker of his rant must be when he claims that Ferguson doesn’t know the meaning of the word “loyalty.”
