Louis Saha has dismissed Roy Keane’s suggestions that Sir Alex Ferguson could still be having a major influence behind the scenes at Manchester United.

David Moyes has made a stuttering start to his reign in charge of the Red Devils, with United currently eighth in the table and 10 points behind leaders Arsenal.

Controlling everything, I don’t think David Moyes would accept that

Louis Saha

Keane recently claimed that Ferguson, now a United director, is still trying to exert “control and power” at the club.

But former United striker Saha insists that Moyes would not stand for such interference.

“Roy Keane has huge respect for Manchester United, but he always has had the quality of speaking his mind,” said Saha.

“I don’t think if something has been done by Sir Alex Ferguson it’s to disrupt anything, it’s to give help and advice.

“Controlling everything, I don’t think David Moyes would accept that. He likes to do things his own way, and that’s for sure that he will listen to advice but I don’t think he will let anyone else control what happens at the club.

“It is a strength having both of them [Moyes and Ferguson] there. One has freshness and the other has massive experience. Manchester United has a big, big image for English football but I really think those two can work well together.”
