Roy Keane ‘hated’ seeing one thing at Carrington and Old Trafford, it summed up Man Utd legend’s elite mentality

Tim Howard has revealed the one thing that Manchester United legend Roy Keane “hated” to see at the Carrington training complex and Old Trafford.

The 45­-year-old American arrived at Manchester United in 2003 after he completed a £2.3m move from New York Red Bulls, formerly known as MetroStars.

However, the former United shot-stopper fell down the pecking order under Sir Alex Ferguson and later played second fiddle to club legend Edwin van der Sar.

Howard left United as part of a permanent switch to Everton in 2007, having previously spent time under former Toffees manager David Moyes on loan.

The ex-United States international, who made 77 appearances for the Red Devils, had a successful run at Goodison Park after his departure from Old Trafford.

Howard would leave Everton in 2016 and return to the States to see out the remainder of his playing career at Colorado Rapids and Memphis 901.

Tim Howard arrived at Old Trafford while Manchester United legend Roy Keane was captain at the Premier League club under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Keane was widely admired for his exceptional leadership skills and the Irishman took a no-nonsense approach both on the pitch and off it.

The 52-year-old Sky Sports pundit had an illustrious playing career under Ferguson until Keane’s relationship with the former manager fractured in 2005.
