Roy Keane Lays Into Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang For Calling Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta By His First Name

Roy Keane laid into Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for calling Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta by his first name.

The Gabon striker was speaking to Sky Sports after the scoring the only goal of the game from the spot as Arsenal finally beat Manchester United at Old Trafford after a 14-year wait.

It was Aubameyang's first goal since the opening game of the season against Fulham in September but Keane, having been one of his usual on air rants, was less than impressed that he referred to his manager as 'Mikel'.

"They didn't show him respect when they called him by his name, Mikel," Keane said after watching the interview.

"He's the manager, the boss, the gaffer. That's respect. Not Mikel, he's not his mate."

Asked by presenter David Jones as to whether Aubameyang was just addressing him in a way that is normal these days, Keane replied: "No, that's called respect."

The former Manchester United captain has a unique knack of getting annoyed over absolutely anything and on the same broadcast he also ripped into Edinson Cavani for what he felt was a shoddy warm up from the Uruguayan.

"I'm intrigued when I look at warm-ups. Cavani never threw a leg," Keane stated.

"He actually didn't do a warm-up, did he?"

"Then he comes on as a sub and is being asked to get them back in the game. Ole's talking about having to get him (Cavani) up to speed, well, sometimes it's up to the player to do something. Ole will pay the ultimate price, obviously."
