“Just because you are paid £120,000-a-week for running round with bog paper in your mouth, you think you are a superstar.”
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has an awful lot of chips strewn across his shoulders, and we’re not just talking your average anaemic French frie – we’re talking the kind of enormous, cheese smothered potato wedges you only see served in Las Vegas casinos.
When asked what advice he’s bestow uponst United’s latest high-profile contract wrangler Wayne Rooney, Keane (who ended his 12-year stint at Old Trafford abruptly after a dispute with manager Sir Alex Ferguson) offered these sage words:
Players and managers fall out all the time. It’s part of life. If I was to offer advice to Wayne, who is a good lad, I would tell him to make sure he looks after number one.
Players are pieces of meat – that’s how I look at it. When your time’s up, your time’s up. Luckily for Wayne he’s at a good age and he’s fit.
[Leaving] depends on the situation and whether you have been lied to or not but, as usual, we are second guessing what has gone on at the club, which is dangerous.
He’s a laugh a minute, is old Keano.
