former boss sir alex ferguson, roy keane blasts


(What's this?)Roy Keane has branded fellow Premier League bosses "hypocrites" over the abuse of referees - with his former boss Sir Alex Ferguson in the firing line.

Sunderland boss Keane says bosses are "an absolute disgrace" for preaching to players about respecting referees - after they have been sent off themselves for dishing out foul abuse.

Keane did not directly name his targets, but only last week Manchester United boss Ferguson insisted his club "respected referees".

However, that wasn't the case when Fergie was sent off against Bolton in November and was given a two-match ban for a confrontation with Mark Clattenburg.

Keane's anger may have been triggered by a TV appearance of Fergie last week when he claimed the "haranguing of referees (had become) ridiculous" and that Keane's infamous vein-popping rage at Andy D'Urso eight years ago was a turning point for United.

Old Trafford legend Keane said: "There's a lot of hypocrites out there. Managers saying we've got to respect officials and yet they're being sent off themselves. Was Sir Alex set off against Bolton this year? You tell me.

"Sometimes it's more the staff, and managers stepping back and letting them act like that. That is ten times worse. If any of my staff did the same they'd know about it."

I also thought of that when Fergie started "preaching" about respect !

yes i did read the article. keane is a hypocrit. he blasted a ref after one of the games this season and he always blasted them as a player. my point is he is saying that managers are saying referees shud be respected by managers. but he is doing wat he is complaining about. btw he shud hav a bit mor respect for fergie.

i think that he's never asked hi splayers to show some special respect to the refs...but he said himself that being a manager and being a player is a totally different thing... and he's never said in public that you need to show respect towards refs then went on to slate them ...
