Sunderland boss Keane: Ferguson, Clough perfect teachers

Roy Keane says learning from Sir Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough will stand him in good stead in his debut season in the Premier League.

Keane will lead Sunderland out for Saturday's Stadium of Light clash with Tottenham clearly treasuring the experience gained during his prestigious career under the likes of Clough and Ferguson.

Keane said: "I hope I have learned something from all the managers I have played under, not just at Manchester United but also Brian Clough and those I played under when I was 10 or 11 years of age.

"Hopefully all the experience will help me but only time will tell. Even the top managers make mistakes and I made a few last year. But I'd like to think that I'm a quick learner."
