Vieira would’ve ‘been a squad player’ at Man Utd – Keane

Patrick Vieira would’ve “been a squad player” at Manchester United, according to his former nemesis Roy Keane.

Keane clashed with Vieira on a number of occasions when Arsenal and United were battling it out for Premier League titles.

The Frenchman was linked with a move to Old Trafford back in his playing career but Keane doesn’t think he would have got in Sir Alex Ferguson’s team.

Keane told Sky Sports: “There was talk about Patrick [going to United], but I don’t think he would have got into the United team.

“He would’ve had to have been a squad player and I don’t think he would’ve been satisfied with that.

“What we would’ve done, when [Juan Sebastian] Veron came to the club, you see that as a challenge.

“The club has to improve, get better and you have to roll with it, roll your sleeves up and enjoy the challenge.

“If you want to be a big player at a big club, you have to accept these challenges.”
