Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane believes that it is not necessary for Louis van Gaal to appoint the Class of ’92 players when he gets the managerial job at Old Trafford.

Roy Keane speaking to Sunday People had to say this,

“It doesn’t rock my boat. People go on about the old Liverpool boot-room and all this, but no it doesn’t do ­anything for me.

“If it ­guarantees success, I would go for it. But does it ­guarantee success? No. I don’t fall for all that.

“There have been coaches over the years at United when I was there – Jim Ryan had the United connection, Brian McClair had the United connection, Mick Phelan was there, and Brian Kidd.

“It is good to have that, but I don’t think it is a must-have – particularly if you think you have to have three or four of them because they came through the youth team together.”

Roy Keane adding to his views said that Phil Neville should have also left when David Moyes was sacked last month, he added,

“It’s about having the right coach, the right dynamics for the staff.

“Moyes brought in Phil Neville and everybody said it was great. I would like to ask Phil what did he bring to the party; and, when Moyes left, why didn’t Phil leave with him?”

Asked if Neville should have walked away, Keane – who won seven Premier League titles with United – ­added: “I don’t know, you would have to ask Phil. But I know what I would have done.”

Roy Keane maybe harsh in his opinion but he’s got a valid point if analysed critically. Roy Keane is known for aggressive and ruthless behaviour, he spent 12 years at Manchester United between 1993-2005, making over 300 appearances and scoring more than 30 goals.
