Roy Keane's former Manchester United team-mates have hit back at the new Ipswich manager's claims that they have achieved nothing. "Can he manage a top club like United, Arsenal or Chelsea in the future?" Wigan's Steve Bruce said. "I think we'll have to see in 10 years because he's only done it for two years."
Manchester City's Mark Hughes added that Portman Road represents a considerably easier challenge than a Premier League club. "The focus on Ipswich Town is not the same as Manchester City, so it's easier," Hughes said. "Roy isn't the only one who wants to be the best he can be." Blackburn's Sam Allardyce described Keane's comments as "bizarre" and said Keane was "a long distance away" from either manager in experience.
