Jon Walters Responds To Roy Keane's Astonishing Attack On Him

Jon Walters Responds To Roy Keane's Astonishing Attack On Him

Jon Walters has reacted to Roy Keane laying into him for 'crying about his family' on TV in the form of a post on Twitter.

The 35-year old posted an image of him with a boxing glove on and with a punching bag in the background along with "Insert face here" as the caption in a clear reference to the former Manchester United skipper.

During his time as Ireland assistant manager, Keane had a very heated falling out with Walters and Harry Arter over their reduced training programmes when on international duty.

In leaked WhatsApp audio messages, defender Stephen Ward recalled how the Keane and Walters had to pulled off one another by teammates following a heated argument in the treatment room.

And Keane has reignited the war of words with some extremely personal comments at a recent event.

"Jon does a lot of talking, it's amazing," Keane told Off The Ball during an on-stage appearance in Dublin.

"Imagine if Jon won a trophy. He talks a good game. He goes on the TV, on about how he was harshly treated by me.

"Not kicking a ball for Burnley for two or three years. On TV, crying about his family situation. Maybe he should lie low for a while.

"Have a look at his medals? That wouldn't take long."

Walters and Keane worked together when he was manager of Ipswich in what appeared to kick off the long-running feud between the pair.

"I've worked with Jon, he was demanding to leave Ipswich when I was down there," Keane added.

"He talks a good game. He's done okay. And the games he was fit for Ireland he's done well, I have to say.

"[He] couldn't wait to get out of Ipswich when I was the manager, making all sorts of demands. Ironically, two or three years ago when his career was in freefall and he'd had injuries, he went back to Ipswich on loan. Fantastic, I was laughing my head off."

Forget KSI vs Logan Paul, Keane vs Walters is the real money fight everyone wants to see.
