Roy Keane: 'I should have moved abroad'

Roy Keane admits that he should have left Manchester United towards the end of his career when he had offers to move abroad.

Roy Keane has admitted that he wished that he had left Manchester United in the latter stages of his career to play abroad.

The Republic of Ireland midfielder's career at the Red Devils came to an abrupt end in 2005 following a disagreement with then-manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Keane has revealed that he had the chance to join several top teams from across Europe, including Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, which he now regrets not taking.

He told reporters: "Towards the end, I wish, probably, that I'd gone abroad. Whether that was when my contract was up at United a couple of times or if I'd known what was going to happen towards the end.

"If I knew the way they were going to treat me, I would have ventured abroad. I had opportunities to go and play, whether it would have been Bayern Munich, Juventus or Real Madrid."

Keane has admitted that he is unsure whether he can forgive Ferguson for comments that the Scot made about him last year.
