Roy Keane escalates feud with Tite over Brazil's dancing celebrations, tells him to 'dance in a nightclub'

Roy Keane has reignited his war of words with Tite, slamming the Brazil boss over his dancing 'yards away' from the opposition.

Brazil smashed South Korea 4-1 on Monday to book their spot in the World Cup quarter-finals, setting up a clash against Croatia.

The five-time World Cup winners produced a sensational first-half showing, scoring four goals without reply.

They celebrated the goals by dancing, with Richarlison getting Tite involved following his strike.

The 61-year-old did Richarlison's 'pigeon' dance, which was condemned by Keane who called it 'disrespectful' in a scathing assessment.

And he's continued his condemnation of Brazil's dancing against South Korea, targeting Tite, telling him to go to a nightclub if he wants to dance.

On Sky Bet, he said: "I love watching Brazil and what they stand for.

"When you think of the World Cup you think of Brazil, I love watching them because they are brilliant at football, but not when they are dancing, or the manager starts dancing, it's not respectful.

"I don't get how a manager can dance when the game is still going ahead, he's got an opposition manager 10 yards away from him, you've got to watch that. The game is about respect. Dance afterwards in the dressing room, or in the nightclub, that's not a problem."

The former Manchester United captain added: "But why is it okay for Brazil to do it during the game? If everyone has a dance after a goal, the games will be going on for three days.

"Do you know what they should start doing, when coaches do their pro licence, show the managers how to do a little dance on the sideline, forget tactics."

During his pre-match press conference, Tite hit back at Keane's claim, saying Brazil's dancing is part of their culture.

"This is not my team," he said. "This is Brazil's team and I'm just the head coach. I will not comment on those who do not understand our history and our culture.

"It is part of our education. Kids dance in schools because it's Brazilian culture and that's not disrespectful. We will continue to do things in our manner."
