“I think when you are playing under a manager like that and winning lots of games, part of your mindset is that it is going to be easy,” said Keane. “Your mindset is about winning matches, so I think going to any job after United is that you have to expect to lose football matches. So I had to change my mindset quite a bit, even when we got promoted with Sunderland. I think we lost about 11 games, maybe 4 or 5 before I took over, so then of course when you get promoted you’re going to lose 20 odd games during the course of a league campaign. So it is changing the mindset. But as you said there are a lot of players who have played under these managers.”
