Olympiakos keeper Carroll proud of time with Man Utd

Olympiakos goalkeeper Roy Carroll is proud of his time with Manchester United.

The two teams meet this week in the Champions League.

"Sir Alex explained my position as soon as I arrived. I knew I was going there to be an understudy to Fabien Barthez, and I learnt a great deal from him - playing with my feet, for a start. It was about being prepared to fight for the No1 spot.

"Clearly, there were games I would rather forget about, not least the one at Spurs, but United gave me four years of unbelievable achievement. When I look back at 70, I'll be able to say that I played for the best team on the planet," he told the Sunday Telegraph.
