Sunderland boss Keane: No-one intimidates me

Sunderland manager Roy Keane insists he is not 'intimidated' by the Premier League's top bosses.

Keane has crossed swords with Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger without success this season, but he remains confident.

Sunderland take on Manchester City on Monday night which will see Keane take on former England boss Sven Goran Eriksson.

"There is no intimidation," Keane said in The People. "I'm not intimidated by them.

"There is just massive respect, recognising what they have done in football.

"How will I make up for my lack of experience? It will come from the games, from playing against them.

"You can speak to managers all day and they can pass on their advice and where they made mistakes or where they felt they made good decisions.

. "Mine will come from my own experiences. That is part of the game I like.

"I made mistakes as a player and you learn from it. Hopefully as a manager I will learn quicker than I did as a player, certainly."
