Roy Keane has admitted he is not a fan of Manchester United’s new manager Jose Mourinho.
The United legend says Mourinho is not his “cup of tea” and revealed that he finds the former Porto, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea boss “really irritating”.

Mourinho was officially confirmed as Louis van Gaal’s successor on Friday after he signed a three-year contract with the 20-time English champions.
“Jose is quite simply the best manager in the game today,” said United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward when he welcomed the Portuguese manager to Old Trafford.
Roy Keane carved out a fearsome reputation at Old Trafford
However, former captain Keane, who won the Champions Leauge, seven Premier League titles and four FA Cups during his 12 years at Old Trafford was not so complimentary about the ‘Special One’.
“He is not my cup of tea,” Keane told ITV.
“I found him really irritating when I coached against him, but that is just a personal thing.
“Working at Manchester United is all about winning and his CV will tell you he is a winner. He was always going to be a good option when United didn’t qualify for the Champions League.
“He was available, a fantastic CV and it seems like a good fit, but maybe he is not for me.”
