Ian Wright Reveals His Dislike For Roy Keane, While Live On TV With Manchester United Legend

Ian Wright revealed his dislike for Roy Keane live on TV while the two were working Arsenal's 1-0 FA Cup third round defeat to Nottingham Forest.

The pair have formed a great rapport on and off screen these days but back when they were rivals on the pitch as Arsenal and Manchester United tussled it out at the top.

And prior to last night's game, Wright revealed exactly what he thought of his punditry pal.

"That's the thing, we can stand here and chat and have a laugh... but I can't tell you how much I disliked Roy back in the day," Wright said on ITV.

"They were so good, it was so hard to beat them. But you can't beat those games. I was watching one the other day with Gary Neville, it was an amazing game."

Wright and Keane are even known to watch the football with one another when they aren't doing punditry such is the friendship they've developed.

Yet many years ago Arsenal legend Wright claims Keane issued a savaged put-down where he called out the striker over a lack of winners medals.

As quoted by The Sun, Wright stated: "I see him as my friend now, but like I say, when we played I didn’t like him. I didn’t like him at all.

"I remember when I won my Premier League medal, when the camera came in I remember saying 'Roy Keane winners medal' because Roy Keane one time said to me ‘Wrighty, you’ve got a cabinet full of losers' medals!'

“It’s the kind of comment I would have said to him if the shoe was on the other foot. 

"But when he said it, it hurts you but I was laughing deep down because it’s a killer, it finishes you, bam. Even when I reminded him, he said 'nah I didn’t say that’. I said, ‘Roy, it’s not something you forget!'”

Keane finished his career with seven Premier League winners medals with Manchester United, while Wright was a one-time winner in 1998.
