Roy Keane says Phil Neville should have left Manchester United when David Moyes was sacked
Ex-United midfielder questioned former teammate's behaviour
Monday 19 May 2014
Roy Keane thinks Phil Neville should have departed Manchester United along with David Moyes, rather than stay to work with Ryan Giggs.
Neville retired from playing last season and joined United as a coach, as David Moyes brought him with him from Goodison Park to Old Trafford.
However Keane has now questioned why Neville stayed at the club once Moyes had been sacked.
He told the Daily Star: "David Moyes brought in Phil Neville and everybody said it is great to have Phil Neville.
"I would like to ask, ‘What did Phil bring to the party?’
"And when David Moyes left, why didn’t Phil leave with him? Because David brought him in with him. So, interesting."
Keane is currently Republic of Ireland No.2 under Martin O'Neill and is set to spend the summer working as a pundit for ITV.
He added: "Should Phil have walked with him?
"I don’t know, you would have to ask Phil but I know what I would have done. But we are all different."
Neville stayed on at United after Moyes' departure, joining forces with former teammates Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.
However it remains to be seen whether he will have a role under new boss Louis Van Gaal.
