Solskjaer calls on Roy Keane to help his Manchester United revival

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's paid his former captain Roy Keane a visit recently at his home with the aim of seeking help as he aims to revive the club.

Solskajer said in a press conference after beating Inter: “I keep in touch with Roy and have been at his house for a cup of tea. I always listen to Roy and his opinions. I value them very highly.

“I know Roy did an interview saying there are many people that claim to be his friends. But I feel we are quite close. We have become friends. He was a fantastic leader. I loved having him as captain.”

Bad Falling

Keane has been estranged from the Old Trafford family since 2005 when a bad falling-out with Sir Alex Ferguson led to an abrupt departure. 

The delay in naming a new captain only emphasizes there is not an obvious choice, never an issue for Ferguson when Keane was about.

“We had Robbo [Bryan Robson], Gary [Neville], Giggsy [Ryan Giggs], Keano. Anyone would love to have them as a leader but that's society nowadays, there aren't many left of them,” says Solskjaer.

United finished 32 points behind champions Manchester City last season and Solskjaer needs new players, a new attitude, new fitness levels, and new leaders to close the gap.
