Roy Keane spoke candidly about his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson on Monday Night Football, as well as his similarities to another formidable manager, Brian Clough.

The former Manchester United captain was in Sky Sports Studios to watch Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford and revealed what drove his relationship with Ferguson and why it was not the infamous hairdryer but another emotion entirely that brought the best out of him.

"I remember when I first went to United and we trained at The Cliff. Some of the senior players would go upstairs and have a cup of tea with Alex Ferguson and some of the other coaching staff. [Bryan] Robson would be up there. [Steve] Bruce and [Gary] Pallister were there.

They'd all be having a chit-chat, but I never wanted that relationship with any manager I worked under. I never wanted to have a cup of tea and a bit of chit chat.

"So, when I did become the captain, I think our relationship, if I want to analyse it, was we both really loved and wanted to do what was best for Manchester United. There was huge respect between us. Unfortunately, that was probably lost at the end but ultimately, I look back on my time working for Alex Ferguson, and he was a brilliant manager and very good to me."
