Clip Of Richard Keys Describing Roy Keane Labelled 'Embarrassing'

Clip Of Richard Keys Describing Roy Keane Labelled 'Embarrassing'

In my opinion, Roy Keane will go down as one of the best midfielders in Premier League history.

Keane was not only a great leader during his 15 year spell in England's top league, but the midfielder was a player who dictated a game: a man who could defend and attack. If you get the chance, watch his performance against Juventus in the '99 Champions League semi-final.

Yes, I'm talking about the "Roy Keane with a captain's goal for Manchester United" game. A true masterclass.

Let's be clear here. Roy Keane was an absolute monster in the middle of the park, and his ability on the ball was incredibly underrated, but former Sky Sports broadcaster Richard Keys has a very different opinion of the Irishman, suggesting that Roy Keane wasn't all that.

To the astonishment of Andy Gray and Keane's former teammate, Jason McAteer, Keys gave his thoughts on the former Manchester United man on beIN Sports this weekend.

Do you agree with him, here?

McAteer was quick to defend Keane, but admits that he had his reservations about the midfielder when he first trained with him in the Republic of Ireland set-up.

"I used to think, 'I don't get it.' I would train with him for Ireland all the time, and I used to think he was bang average." McAteer said.

"I remember Mick [McCarthy] putting me centre midfield, I don't remember who we were playing, but it was me and Roy in the middle of the park.

"After 90 minutes I came off and thought, I know what that's all about now. You give it away, he wins it back. He demands the best from all the players."


Let us know your thoughts on this one in the comments. Keys has certainly caused a huge amount of debate, here.
