According to the Liverpool Echo, Gerrard was ‘attacked’ by Keane during the Irishman’s interview at a fundraiser for Waterford United; the 43 year old was answering questions about who his former club should try and sign in the summer to address their ongoing decline, and was discussing Paul Pogba when the ex-England captain’s name popped up.
He said: “I think that United should sign Paul Pogba for they need a presence and physical player in midfield. He knows the league, is big and strong and is playing brilliantly for Juventus. People say United can’t get Pogba but they should try.”
However, when one fan proposed Gerrard’s name, Keane joked: “No, we want to try win something!”
Keane won seven Premier League titles with United between 1994 and 2003, but was suspended for the final when they won the Champions League in 1999.
