Roy Keane Left 'Fuming' After Visit To Manchester United Training Ground

Roy Keane Left 'Fuming' After Visit To Manchester United Training Ground

Roy Keane was left 'fuming' after visiting Manchester United's training ground to give a pep talk before their game with Manchester City.

The former United captain was invited down by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer so he could pass on his experiences of derbies under Sir Alex Ferguson.

But according to an exclusive Mirror report, the Irishman was left unimpressed by an unnamed youngster who slouched in his chair and looked disinterested throughout the talk.

A training ground source told The Mirror:

"As you'd imagine Roy has strong views on what it takes to be a proper United player and he gave it them straight.

"He wasn't impressed with one player who didn't seem to be all that interested and looked as if he'd rather be somewhere else.

"But for the majority it was a fascinating snapshot into the hunger and desire that drove Roy during his time at the club."

Solskjaer's aim was to motivate his young squad and give an insight into when United were a dominant force in the Premier League.

The talk was still seen as a success by the United hierarchy and it's unknown if Keane publicly called out the player.

It's believed Keane hadn't been back at ­Carrington since leaving the club back in December 2005 following a series of bust-ups with then manager Ferguson.

"They're hugging and kissing - don't even look at the opposition, you're going into battle with them."

Keane's words for the squad must have had an impact as United went on to win yesterday's derby 2-1.

A Marcus Rashford penalty and Anthony Martial strike gave them a two goal cushion within 30 minutes.

They kept Pep Guardiola's side at bay for most of the second half until Nicolas Otamendi powered home a header five minutes from time to give the champions hope.

But United held on and they're now unbeaten in five league games. Solskjaer's best run since becoming permanent manager back in March.

Perhaps getting Keane in for pep talks is the key to success for United.
