Roy Keane has confirmed once and for all who he really supports

Roy Keane has confirmed once and for all who he really supports

The Irishman's answer may shock Red Devils supporters.

Roy Keane has shocked fans after confirming he supports Manchester United's Premier League rivals.

The Irishman made 478 appearances over his illustrious career for the Red Devils and famously captained them to their treble winning campaign in 1999.

He won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson, but the 52-year-old has admitted he still doesn't support the club.

Speaking on the Stick to Football podcast, Arsenal legend Ian Wright took issue with Keane and Gary Neville for making a joke at the expense of the Gunners' collapse in the Premier League title race lat season.

"As Man United fans, you lot should not be making jokes about any kind of football right now," Wright said, referencing United's recent struggles on the pitch.

Keane then chimed in: "I am a Spurs fan! I played for Man United but Spurs are my team."

"Even more of a reason why you shouldn't," Wright jokingly replied.

Although Keane's words may surprise many fans, he has regularly admitted he supported the north London side growing up due to players like Glenn Hoddle and Clive Allen.

Speaking at a 2015 function for childhood cancer charity Barretstown, he said (quotes via the Daily Mail): "Just because I played for Manchester United didn't mean I was a fan of the team," Keane said.

"When I played for Rockmount, one of my teammate's fathers used to bring me to training and he supported Tottenham.

"That's where it started, I liked their players, the likes of Glenn Hoddle and Clive Allen. But after I'd come back from trial at Nottingham Forest, Spurs offered me a trial.

"I turned it down because Forest had been good me, I liked the club and felt some loyalty to them. I had a soft spot for Spurs, and still do."
