Do You Think Man United Need To Be Taken Over By Saudi Investors In Order To Reach The Levels Of Man City And Other Top Clubs?

I don’t think Man United needs Saudi investors. There’s enough investment in the football club, it just needs to be invested correctly.

Most managers have had a lot of money thrown at them. We don’t know what the ins and outs are but there’s players coming in and out and a new manager comes in and we need stability with Ten Hag, he’s got what he wanted and so has Ronaldo.

Ronaldo said the club hasn’t changed since he was last there, but I’m not so sure about that. He knows more but he’s an upset man at the moment and he hasn’t been looked after like the superstar he was.

Todd Boehly wants Ronaldo at Chelsea, would that be a sensible move for them?

I don’t think Ronaldo is a good move for Graham Potter at all. Not so early in his Chelsea career to be dictated who comes in.

He obviously wants to have a full say on what happens at the club and that would send out the wrong message straight away.

Football surprises you every day and you don’t know what could happen next, so who knows?

You had a falling out with Roy Keane, is that all in the past?

I have phenomenal respect for Roy Keane. He was a brilliant player.

In my days at Nottingham Forest I had Nigel Clough with me up front and we weren’t the quickest, but we’d have Roy Keane bursting through the midfield and we gelled very nicely.

By the time I went to United he changed his game and he was a solid, reliable midfielder who knew his game and knew what do do and when to do it. That’s what made him so good.

Whether he was geeing people up or putting his arm around him – more often than not it was rollicking!

You came on for Roy Keane in the 1999 FA Cup final and you scored and assisted before lifting the trophy, did he ever congratulate you for that?

Roy Keane fell out with me a long time before 1999. He never came up to me after my match-winning FA Cup display.

After six minutes he got injured and I was very surprised that after six minutes Sir Alex told me to come on.

We then scored the first goal and won the FA Cup, but Roy was my captain – that’s how he liked it and that’s how it was.
