Manchester City Reportedly Complain To Sky Sports After Roy Keane Called Kyle Walker An 'Idiot'
Manchester City have launched a complaint to Sky Sports after Roy Keane called Kyle Walker an "idiot," according to reports.
The 49-year-old Manchester United legend pulled no punches towards the City right-back after he brought down Sadio Mane and awarded Liverpool a penalty.
Liverpool drew 1-1 with City at the Etihad earlier this month, but Keane branded Walker a "car crash" during a scathing attack in Sky Sports' half-time analysis.
"Because he's up against an idiot," Keane said, before adding: "he's a car crash, he keeps making these types of mistakes and is rightly punished for it."
The Daily Mail now reports that City believe Keane crossed the line when he called the 30-year-old England international an "idiot."

And the newspaper added that the Premier League club have contacted Sky to express their dissatisfaction over Keane's choice of words.
England manager Gareth Southgate has even defended Walker against the outspoken Keane, saying he is "very happy with what Walker is doing."
The 50-year-old explained: "I think he's playing extremely well. Observations and analysis are fine, I think personal criticism less so. I think we have to be careful about that.
"I'm very happy with what Walker is doing. He's playing every game for his club because the manager trusts him and feels he needs him. So, if he's doing that for Pep, it's an indication of the quality."
Sky Sports have not commented on City's complaint at the time of this writing.
City will return to Premier League action on Saturday with an away trip to Tottenham.
