Neville will take his Everton to Sunderland today and Keane said: "Phil's a good pro, like Gary. I'd like a Phil Neville at my club. He trains well, he looks after himself. He has no ego.
"It's never easy for a player to leave United but he has adapted well. He's doing very well at Everton.
"Do I stay in touch with Phil? I wasn't that friendly with him. I went to his wedding, that was enough!
"I've got a lot of time for Phil and his wife - top people - but I'm not one for ringing people."
