Micah Richards shut down Roy Keane when the Manchester United legend questioned if he "burst onto the scene" during an amusing argument.

During the analogy, Richards compared the 18-year-old Scottish midfielder with how he made an instant impact in his career.

The former Aston Villa right-back argued: "I burst onto the scene, didn't I? And I was going to be the next best thing.

"And yeah, I won a Premier League, which is the best thing you could ever do.

Keane doubled down on his comments by claiming that very few defenders will burst onto the scene.

However, Richards put his foot down and hit back: "Well, hold on! I played for England at 18, youngest-ever defender to play for England. I would say that's bursting onto the scene."

Soccer AM later tweeted out a clip during the commercial, with the studio panel bursting into laughter over the exchange.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville hilariously said that he "kept telling them to feed" Richards to intensify the argument.
