Keane still has soft spot for Man Utd

Roy Keane insists he still has a soft spot for Manchester United.

Despite being critical of United in his role as an ITV pundit, Keane insists he retains his affection for the club, nine years after being forced out by Sir Alex Ferguson.

"It's easy sitting in the studio or sitting in the fancy seats eating prawn sandwiches," Keane said. "But I am still fond of United.

"I left on bad terms, particularly with the manager and David Gill, but I want them to do well. I go the games as a fan sometimes. Sir Alex? Yeah, he sits in the nice seats, but I sit in the cheap seats with my young fella.

"A couple of people know me, but they leave me alone. I enjoy going to games and not to analyse."
