Manchester United legend Roy Keane reveals that he "shed a tear" when his carear with the Red Devils came to an end.

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has revealed that he cried when his career with the club came to an end.

The former United captain was told he could leave after a meeting with Sir Alex Ferguson in 2005, and Keane said that he was deeply saddened by the news.

"Listen I'm not a robot, I was upset and I did shed a tear out in the car park in my car for about two minutes," Keane told ITV Sport.

"Was it the right time for me to leave? Absolutely not, I could have played there for there for another couple of years in the middle of the park.

"I was hurt, I had no club and I walked out injured [because I was] putting in tackles for the club. My relationship with Ferguson is non-existent."

Keane won seven Premier League titles with the Red Devils.
