'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Juventus v Man Utd - Remembered

Sir Alex said one game stands above all others as the biggest bitter/sweet feeling of his career.

Roy Keane had an 11 amazing years with United, and it will be recognised on Tuesday in his testimonial match against current club Celtic.

In an United career during which Keane won seven Premier League titles and four FA Cups, Ferguson has no hesitation in picking out what was probably the most bitter-sweet night of the midfielder's professional life as his greatest game.

Keane inspired United to a 3-2 win against the Italian giants in Turin. United had gone 2-0 down early in the semi-final second leg and Keane's performance was made even more astonishing because he had already picked up a booking that would rule him out of the following month's final.

Ferguson: 'That semi-final against Juventus, no question. It was a totally selfless performance. Absolutely wonderful.

'The tragedy of the night was that he picked up the very soft booking which ruled him out of the final.'
