Keane "never got a buzz" from lifting Premier League trophy as Man Utd captain

Roy Keane has revealed he never got a 'buzz' out of lifting the Premier League trophy with Manchester United.

As the captain of Sir Alex Ferguson's United side, Keane was given the honour of lifting the Premier League trophy on four occasions. But speaking to Jamie Carragher, via SportBible, Keane has said 'he wasn't bothered by all that stuff'.

Keane said: "Honestly, it sounds bizarre, and I probably shouldn't be saying it, I never got a buzz from all that stuff. I remember we won the title at Everton, and Laurent Blanc was retiring, and I said to the manager let Laurent pick the trophy up.

"And the manager said, 'no, no, no, you're the captain'.

"So I was never really bothered with stuff like that, maybe because I was always thinking 'don't enjoy it too much' and 'keep focus', 'there's always next year'. And 'don't let people know you're relaxing!'"

Keane was handed United's captaincy in 1997, and he wore the armband until his exit in 2005 when moving to Celtic.

The Irishman also confirmed he would not return to management: "I did up til recently, but I almost feel recently, I think, those days are over for me now, going back into management.

"I really feel like that. I'm 50 now, I'm doing the TV. Obviously, I'm labelled as more of a pundit now.

"But no, no, I feel I'm getting my head round it. It's maybe more of a head job that is the role for me and over the next few years, I think I can't see a club really giving me a real good opportunity to get back into it."
