Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has become the latest victim of Roy Keane’s vicious tirades, after the Manchester United legend made a cheeky dig at Gerrard’s lack of trophies, especially the Premiership.
Back in his native Ireland and speaking at a fundraiser for Waterford United, the 43-year-old was quizzed by fans as to who his former club should be looking at for transfer targets.
I think that United should sign Paul Pogba for they need a presence and physical player in midfield.
Pogba knows the league, is big and strong and is playing brilliantly for Juventus.
People say United can’t get Pogba but they should try.
However, when Gerrard’s name cropped up after he exits Liverpool in the summer, Keane snapped:
No, we want to try win something!
An obvious dig at Gerrard’s difficulty in landing English football’s top prize.
Ironically, the tough-tackling Keane won seven Premier League titles with United between 1994-2003 but unlike Gerrard who inspired his team to glory in the 2005 Champions League final, he was suspended when Alex Ferguson’s men lifted the trophy in 1999.
