Roy Keane claims Sir Alex Ferguson allowed some Man Utd players to get away with 'disgraceful' behaviour

Roy Keane claims Sir Alex Ferguson allowed some Man Utd players to get away with 'disgraceful' behaviour

Keane has said Ferguson allowed some players to get away with questionable behaviour.

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has claimed Sir Alex Ferguson allowed some of his players to get away with what he describes as 'disgraceful behaviour'.

The Sky Sports pundit left the club back in 2005 after a high-profile dispute with the former United manager.

Keane left United after taking aim at several first-team players - including Kieran Richardson, Darren Fletcher, Edwin van der Sar and Rio Ferdinand - in a controversial interview for MUTV, which was never aired to the public.

He soon retired just six months after his departure from Old Trafford in 2006.

Having won seven Premier League titles, one Champions League trophy and the FA Cup four times during his time at United, Keane is often regarded as one of the club's greatest players.

The 52-year-old has criticised Ferguson several times since leaving the club and has now admitted that he feels the legendary manager was occasionally too soft on other players in and around the dressing room.

"I talk about this justified angle when you feel like you’ve done nothing wrong [to be let go by a club],'' said Keane on the latest episode of The Overlap's Stick To Football podcast.

Roy Keane questioned why the players were 'shaking hands before battle'.

''I felt I’d done nothing wrong, Incy [Paul Ince], and then you see players over the last 15, 20 years at Manchester United – even when [Sir Alex] Ferguson was there – do a lot worse and the manager would almost just let them off the hook.

''Whereas there’s certain players where I look back going, ‘what we were supposed to have done wrong is very little, yet they’re trying to kick you out the door’.

''There’s other players whose behaviour, even when I was there, I’m thinking ‘this is a disgrace what the other lads were up to’.

"The manager would go ‘no, I’ll let them off with that’. It’s a joke!"
