The Irishman was speaking to BBC Radio 4 about his explosive new book when he offered his thoughts on the current set-up at Old Trafford
Roy Keane claims Manchester United aren’t the same club from his time at Old Trafford.
The Irishman has released his latest book The Second Half this week, where he provides the latest instalment on his explosive career.
Keane has let rip on a number of his former United friends and team-mates along with legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
And now he has discussed the change in the club’s identity since his departure in 2005.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4, he said: “I look back on my time at United with fondness. They were great days with great characters – which there’s not too many of about anymore.
“There has been a lot of ins and outs at Old Trafford and I don’t see the same United as when I was there.
“Fingers crossed for Louis van Gaal, he has brought a lot of quality in. The signs are better in the last few weeks but he might have to wait another year or two for a trophy.”
Keane’s book has been released at the same time as another explosive autobiography in Kevin Pietersen’s.
The ex-England captain has lifted the lid on the cricket dressing room and Keane insists players have the right to have their say.
Asked if he had read Pietersen’s book, he said: “No, I’ve not seen any of it. People look back and think things in the dressing room should be kept quiet.
“In the past year, there has been a lot of lies and a lot of criticism about me and I felt I deserved the chance to answer.
“If you’re going to sit down and right a book, you’ve got to be honest. It’s not about if people like it or don’t.”
