Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson hit back at former captain Roy Keane's damning assessment of his team’s Champions League exit.
Keane lambasted his old club in the wake of their 2-1 defeat to Basle in Switzerland last night, which dumped them into the Europa League.
The Corkman claimed it was "a reality check" for the likes of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Ashley Young, all of whom received substantial praise for their performances during United's flying start to the season.
Clearly, Ferguson was unimpressed. "He had an opportunity to prove himself as a manager too. It is a difficult job," said the Scot.
