"The owner, clearly, was going to throw money at it," the Irishman said.

For those who don't remember, Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich purchased the club in 2003 and bankrolled his team to success, signing big names and hiring Jose Mourinho in 2004.

We'd respect for Arsenal. I've always found it hard to kind of like Chelsea even though. I'm still reluctant - the way they've done it. Whatever way they've done it, I find it kind of hard to praise them too much but that's just a personal thing."

So there you have it, Roy Keane harbours grudges – just not the ones you'd expect.
