Roy Keane would be prepared to meet up with Sir Alex Ferguson for a cup of tea – if he receives an apology from the former Manchester United manager.
Former Red Devils captain Keane feels Ferguson should say sorry for bad-mouthing him following his acrimonious departure from Old Trafford in 2005.
In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine, quoted in several national newspapers, Keane – asked whether he would ever go for a pint with Ferguson – replied: “Well, it would be a cup of tea. If Sir Alex apologizes, then yes, I would.
“If Ferguson apologizes I would be happy to move on… for Ferguson to bad-mouth me after I left, I think he does owe me an apology.”
He added: “It was never going to end as a pal’s act. I was never going to leave with champagne and flowers.
“I saw how Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce left the club, both decent United captains, and I didn’t like the way they left.”
The outspoken Irishman also made it clear he was not losing any sleep over any supporters who feel his feud with Ferguson has tarnished his legacy.
“If United fans say I had a decent career, then brilliant,” he said. “If they want to say, ‘What’s gone on with Ferguson stuff?’ then f*** them.”
