Keane blasts squad in his new book.
Former Manchester United midfielder enforcer Roy Keane has blasted a “weak dressing room” at Old Trafford, report the Mirror, claiming that it was behind the failure of David Moyes’ reign at the club, which lasted less than a year following the retirement of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
Keane, who has targeted the likes of Rio Ferdinand and Ferguson elsewhere in his new title, believes that the failure of Moyes to successfully replace his fellow Scot was down to a lack of strength in the dressing room at United:
“Looking at what happened to David Moyes, I have to conclude that he can’t have had a strong dressing-room: he had a weak dressing room.”
Indeed, with the likes of Ferdinand having come out and criticised Moyes’ methods since the former Everton manager was relieved of his Old Trafford duties, it seems as though the squad at Old Trafford were never fully behind Moyes and his quest to stamp his mark on a club who had been under the iron fist of one man for such a long period of time.
Keane, for his part, was allowed to leave United for Celtic following a huge row with Ferguson centred on an interview given to the clubs in-house television station, MUTV, in which the outspoken Irishman hit out at both the club’s supporters and playing squad.
