“We don't bring negativity into the place. We stay positive and I can say for sure, there are a lot of leaders in this squad, staff and players."

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær, whose side face Turkish outfit Istanbul Basaksehir in Group H of the Champions League tomorrow night, claims he couldn't care less what Keane thinks.

He said: "Roy (Keane) has always been outspoken. I am very happy with the players I have here. His job is to give his opinion. I listen to him, but we have a strong group here."
