Keane ready to end Fergie feud IF former Man United boss says sorry

first_imgRoy Keane says he is prepared to bury the hatchet with Sir Alex Ferguson – so long as he receives an apology from the former Manchester United manager.Keane enjoyed great success as Ferguson’s captain at Old Trafford, helping the club win a host of major honours, but his acrimonious departure from United in 2005 saw the pair’s relationship break down.Ferguson went on to blast the Irishman in his autobiography, while Keane hit back in his own book by accusing the Scot of ‘disloyalty’ and of failing to honour the terms of his contract.But Keane has now suggested he could end his feud with the 72-year-old.In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine, quoted in several national newspapers, Keane – asked whether he would ever go for a pint with Ferguson – replied: “Well, it would be a cup of tea. If Sir Alex apologises, then yes, I would.“If Ferguson apologises I would be happy to move on… for Ferguson to bad-mouth me after I left, I think he does owe me an apology.”He added: “It was never going to end as a pal’s act. I was never going to leave with champagne and flowers.“I saw how Bryan Robson and Steve Bruce left the club, both decent United captains, and I didn’t like the way they left.”The outspoken Irishman also made it clear he was not losing any sleep over any supporters who feel his feud with Ferguson has tarnished his legacy.“If United fans say I had a decent career, then brilliant,” he said. “If they want to say, ‘What’s gone on with Ferguson stuff?’ then f*** them.” Roy Keane with Sir Alex Ferguson in happier times 1last_img read more

FALLEN WIND TURBINE TAKEN AWAY AND SCRAPPED

first_imgThe fallen turbine near MaasA wind turbine that came crashing down during heavy winds eight weeks ago has been taken away to be scrapped.Two cranes and several lorries spent two days on the windfarm at Loughderryduff, near Mass, Portnoo, as the 245-ft turbine was broken down before being transported to Derry. A spokesman for the developers, North West Wind Ltd, confirmed that the fallen turbine had been removed to Derry.“The whole site has been cleared. “Workers spent most of Wednesday and Thursday on site cutting the turbine into smaller units,” John Gilllespie said.The turbine, which has a lifespan of around 25 years, fell just four years after being erected in the eight-unit development.An investigation into why the wind turbine fell is still being carried out. Locals say they fear other turbines could fall.FALLEN WIND TURBINE TAKEN AWAY AND SCRAPPED was last modified: May 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:MaasPortnoowind turbinelast_img read more
