“The dynamics were changing, and I was always riding with it – it didn’t bother me because it would give you a new kind of energy, especially if they were good players who could help us win trophies.

“But towards the end, I remember thinking that with some of these guys, I didn’t have them and their joke, their humor. I barely had a chat with one of them, but I was constantly watching the bigger picture of whether they were going to be good players for Man United. It was the most important thing.

“When I left the club, there were a lot of players that I didn’t miss at all,” he added. “They weren’t for me, and the game was changing. I was looking in the locker room after training, and a lot of them were on their phones. Maybe I was old school and a bit grumpy, but I didn’t do it you get it.

“Even with Wayne and Rio, I didn’t have their joke and what it sometimes represented. Towards the end at United, with the players passing by, I don’t always have them. I thought in terms of personality, it’s not for me.

“I was professional and they were all very good players, so I was delighted to play with them. But when it comes to having jokes, a cup of tea or a coffee with them, forget that. “

“When I was at Man United, when I was negotiating new business or when I left the club, the clubs made it clear to me on all aspects of contract negotiations that I was in business, and I have including. But I signed a contract and I expect the clubs to honor this contract and I know the circumstances have changed and, I repeat, I am talking about the clubs that have money at their disposal.

“I had discussions when I was in Nottingham Forest; I was literally on the same money for two years; I got a raise and I was told I was greedy. I went to Man United. Man United argued with me that they couldn’t not match Blackburn Rovers. Man United couldn’t match Blackburn Rovers? Can you believe it?

“Finally, after a few years, I signed a new contract, Man United sent letters to supporters saying that the subscriptions had increased because of my contract. The day I left the club, I sat in front of Ferguson and Gill, who discussed the money flow problems. Brilliant. Brilliant. ”

Keane added, “I know there is pressure on the players, but it is nobody’s business what you do with your salary. You take your salary and if you want to be generous, go for it. I don’t think players should feel pressured by clubs, especially larger clubs, to take pay cuts.

“They signed a contract, and your contract with a club is a personal matter. This idea that all players should take a pay cut, or that all players should take it, I think is nonsense. It’s up to the individual.

“If they want to stick with their guns and say they want their full salary when you have a billionaire in the background, do it. Don’t be swayed by some kind of pressure from the media, who still write lies about certain players.

“There is a lot of speculation out there, I don’t think anyone should believe what they read about what the players are doing. I’m really surprised how many people jump on the bandwagon with player reviews, this is no one Company.

“I am talking about the best clubs here with the really wealthy owners, obviously the clubs in the owner’s leagues have to make sacrifices, but the players at the top of the clubs with the money, respect your weapons. “
