Sir Alex Ferguson has a massive ego and is still trying to control Manchester United, says former United midfielder Roy Keane.

Keano appears in a brand-new ITV4 documentary that is scheduled to air later today in the UK entitled Keane and Vieira: The Best of Enemies. In the documentary, Keane shares several insights including:

“Everything is about control and power. [Sir Alex Ferguson is] still striving for it now even though he’s not manager. There’s massive ego involved in that.”

Keane added that Brian Clough, not Ferguson, was the best manager he ever worked under. The assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland team also said that he and his son now have season tickets at United, now that Ferguson is no longer manager there.

Here are today’s world soccer news headlines:

Premier League
