From The News of the World:

“I think Roy Keane should be the next manager of Manchester United.

"He is already the most popular player at Manchester United.

"He is the working-class hero and I know he could be the new manager in the future of Manchester United. And I think he will become a great manager. He is already the boss of Manchester United in the dressing room. When he comes into the dressing room, he is the main man in there. He stays above all the other players and we all accept that. And he takes all the decisions for the players.

"His football brain is perfect out on the pitch and in the dressing room.

"When you play bad, he tells you straight. But he also tells you what to do to put it right. He is very determined and is the motor of our team. When he was injured we missed him.

"You see I like him very much — I'm very pro Roy Keane."
