Roy Keane's Fascinating, Unfiltered Interview With Gary Neville Shows A Different Side To Him

Roy Keane has addressed absolutely everything you've ever wanted to know in a candid interview with former Manchester United teammate Gary Neville.


Keane's no-nonsense attitude saw him become a Premier League legend and it's extended into his punditry career.

Despite many thinking Keane is like that all the time, a recent chat with Neville on The Overlap will change your mind.

The United legends broke down Keane's entire career on a walk with his dog Jet and every word in the hour chat was fascinating.

Keane's 2005 departure from United was filled with turmoil and his relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson never fully recovered,

16 years on however, the 50-year-old still feels he was 'wronged' in the entire situation.

"It was brilliant at first. The anger I have towards the end of my time at United is justified. I feel that I was wronged. We all do something and say 'I kind of played my part in that' but no not on that occasion. You might have a different opinion but I don't think so.

"We did that Q&A in Dublin and you said there was no way back, the damage was done six months before that. I knew it was coming.

"I wasn't daft. When you're working with brilliant managers and that respect is lost, which it was, it's already over."

He quickly stressed his time at United was the 'best of his life' and didn't want to dwell on the negativity.

Keane explained that he's eager to make a return to management, with his last job being a decade ago at Ipswich Town.

"I am pretty content in what I am doing at the moment but I have my days where I get restless like everyone else", Keane said.

"I ask myself do I want to get back into management but realistically where am I going to go back into? The Championship? The top of League One?'.

"It's not easy when I went into management but there is something in there that makes me think I could be a good manager. That's what's pulling me to make me go back in."

This past year has seen him join social media platform Instagram and in 2021 alone, he's earned 1.5 million followers.

Some have questioned if his social media presence is entirely legit - but it is, with his youngest daughter being the only member of his 'team'.

"People have said to me, who is your team? Where is your team based? And I went where is my team? As if I have a team!" he joked. "It's me and my 16-year-old daughter. She is the Chief Executive.

"We say manage it... f**king hell I mean we say can we do a picture and we do a picture, is that managing it?"
