Former Manchester United goalkeeper Tim Howard has hailed Roy Keane as the best player he played with - ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.

Howard spent four years at Old Trafford alongside Keane and won the FA Cup and League Cup during that time.

Howard says Keane taught him how to become more resilient after he left United for Everton

Howard spent four years at United between 2004 and 2007 before moving to Goodison Park

'I played with so many great players and leaders in my career, but to me, none was better than Roy Keane during my time at Manchester.

'He was the toughest son of a b***h I ever met. Nothing short of brilliant,' he told ESPN.

 'As a coach, he taught me about resilience. And never giving up on myself. I took so much of what I learned from being around him and used it over the rest of my career, trying to pass it along to the next generation.'

Howard established himself as one of the Premier League's best goalkeepers at Everton

After leaving United, Howard established himself as one of the Premier League's finest goalkeepers and also enjoyed success with the USA.

He won the Gold Cup twice in 2007 and 2017 with his national side before retiring from football at the end of last season after making 100 appearances for Colorado Rapids.
