Roy Keane has been very complimentary of his former club today, claiming that thanks to the quality of the academy, we’ll only continue to improve.
“United to me are just going to get stronger and they are the team to beat as usual,” said Keane. “At reserve and academy level, they have got such good young players coming through. Eventually you hope they get into the first team, just as Danny Welbeck and Tom Cleverley have. And they settle straight into the team because they’ve got good habits, good attitudes and a good spirit. The only major question mark would be if Wayne Rooney picks up an injury, because he’s a big, big player for them. He is scoring goals for fun. Since he signed his contract, he has settled down and his best years are still ahead of him.”
