Kamara: Keane should be the one to bury the hatchet with Sir Alex

| 20.02.2015

Roy Keane and Sir Alex Ferguson were once one of the most revered and successful duos in world football.

But having been bonded together by Manchester United’s unwavering dominance they’re now steely-eyed adversaries.

And following Wednesday night’s latest episode in the cold war between the pair there’s been plenty of discussion around how the situation could eventually be resolved.

We asked Ladbrokes ambassador Chris Kamara for his opinion on the ongoing spat.

Kammy told Ladbrokes News: “Is it time for them to bury the hatchet? Yeah, life’s too short.”

“They had a fantastic relationship as manager and captain. But they’re both stubborn characters so it’s difficult to see how they’ll make up.”

The pair famously fell out following the release of their respective autobiographies with comments made by Sir Alex Ferguson in his latest book attracting the ire of Keane.

“Lies, basic lies” was the Irishman’s response to Sir Alex’s criticism of his behaviour at Old Trafford and the way his former manager described his exit from the club.

And given this week’s events it seems that the frosty relations that currently exist between them are no closer to thawing.

Kammy added: “What’s happened between them has been played out in the public domain. We can all see its origins and hopefully where it’ll end.”

“Who will be the bigger man of the two? I think Roy owes Sir Alex Ferguson for what he’s done for his career and any offer of reconciliation should come from him.”

Louis van Gaal’s United side are priced at evens to overcome Swansea at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.
