Roy Keane delivered hilarious rant about West Ham’s defending, Ian Wright had to hold in his laugh
| Last updated
Ian Wright tried his hardest not to burst out laughing during Roy Keane’s rant about West Ham United’s defending.
On Wednesday night, the Hammers arrived at Old Trafford in a bid to knock Manchester United out of the FA Cup.
After a cagey first half, the visitors took the lead thanks to a brilliantly taken goal from Said Benrahma.
However, United got back into the match with 77 minutes on the clock after West Ham defender Nayef Aguerd deflected a corner into the back of his own net.
With the match ticking towards the 90th minute, Argentine youngster Alejandro Garnacho produced something straight out of the top drawer to make it 2-1 to Erik ten Hag’s side.
Brazilian midfielder Fred sealed the deal with a late goal in the fifth minute of added time.
After the match, former United captain Keane was very critical of West Ham’s defending for the Red Devils’ equaliser.
The Irishman said on ITV: “They're having a little discussion like they're in Starbucks. Come and take people out - come with violence. That's your job!”
At that point, fellow pundit Wright was captured trying his hardest not the laugh midway through Keane’s sentence.

On the back of the 3-1 victory, Ten Hag spoke about his side’s resilience.
He told ITV: “It was not easy, it is never easy after you win a cup and celebrate, then you have to get back to business as usual that was our task and finally we found a way to win.
“The resilience and belief they were going to win was magnificent.”
On Garnacho’s stunning goal, Ten Hag said: “It was a great goal, you could see he was growing into the game and taking players on, he was difficult to stop and he was really a threat.
“It was a great goal but I think it was the total set up for the last 30 minutes. I had a strong feeling we could win the game, you could see the belief and composure there was never any panic.”
United were drawn to play Fulham at Old Trafford in the next round of the FA Cup.
