Gary Pallister on Roy Keane retirement

“When Roy arrived at United he had big boots to fill - Bryan Robson’s – and, no question, he filled them. Roy was a special player. He was a great leader, a great motivator and he had unbelievable drive and will to win. Who knows,one day we might see him as the manager of Man United. It’s always important to leave on a high; he achieved his childhood dream of playing for United and for Celtic. He has to make the right decision for himself and his family. His body had a few knocks over the years because that’s the type of player he is and I’m sure it’s been a tough decision for him but he’s received medical advice and spoken with his family, that’s the best decision. It must have been a huge blow when Roy and Paul Scholes missed out on the Champions League final. Roy’s drive meant he wanted to play in the final and I think he got frustrated with the team maybe not reaching the heights they did in 1999 on a regular basis. To his credit he always wanted to achieve bigger and better things. Unfortunately, United never managed reach a European final again, I think it’s one of the frustrating parts of his career. Who knows, one day we might see him as the manager of Man United."
