Ferguson in his books makes comments about an interview Roy Keane did on MUTV, where he reportedly criticised many of his team mates. Keane’s comments were deemed so bad that MUTV didn’t broadcast the interview.
Keane was asked for his comment on the topics brought up in the book last night on ITV, but he insisted he wouldnt lose any sleep over the issue and that he was fairly “relaxed” about the entire thing.
However, this morning, things have appeared to have changed.
Roy Keane’s Open Letter To Alex Ferguson
I wasn’t going to write this letter, but I’ve been dodging phone calls from Tommy Gorman all day who wished me to remark upon your having said in your autobiography, that I over stepped the line during my time in Old Trafford. Nothing compares to how shite those players were playing at the time and that initial interview on MUTV was done from a place of team motherliness and love.
I am extremely concerned for you and those around you. You’ve insulted me, a man from Cork. And done so in a very public fashion. The next time you see me I might actually have to pimp you out to a sledge hammer and leave your naked remains in an unsecured building site.
Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to exploit me, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself.
The football business doesn’t give a shit about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think that your book is what YOU wanted.. and when you end up in rehab as a result of another ill-tempered outburst from me, ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your book and you will find yourself very alone. And in pain.
You ought be protected like a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you. This is a dangerous world. You’re now prey for animals, dangerous animals like me.
I never meant to start a war, but tell me Fergie, where did I go wrong?
A relaxed Roy.
