Roy Keane Launches Attack On Jon Walters For 'Crying On TV' After Death Of Brother And Mother

Roy Keane Launches Attack On Jon Walters For 'Crying On TV' After Death Of Brother And Mother

Roy Keane has re-opened his war of words with Jon Walters, criticising the former Stoke City striker for 'crying about his family' on TV as he talked about the death of his mother and brother.

During an appearance on the Late Late Show in Ireland earlier this year, Walters told of how he struggled to cope with his mother's passing when he was just 11 years of age.

In an emotional interview, he also talked about his brother dying in 2018, his wife suffering a miscarriage and his daughter Scarlett being diagnosed with scoliosis in what Walters called a "triple-whammy".

Keane, who was Martin O'Neill's assistant manager for five years, had a very heated falling out with Walters and Harry Arter over their reduced training programmes.

Stoke City defender Stephen Ward told the story of their altercation in leaked WhatsApp audio messages. He too was featured in Keane's rant but it was Walters with whom the former Manchester United man got most personal with.

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