Roy Keane Rips Into Manchester United And Liverpool Players For 'Hugging And Kissing' In Tunnel

Roy Keane Rips Into Manchester United And Liverpool Players For 'Hugging And Kissing' In Tunnel

Roy Keane fumed at seeing Manchester United and Liverpool players "hugging and kissing" ahead of the big derby clash at Old Trafford this afternoon.

In the tunnel before the game, United midfielders Andreas Pereira and Fred embraced fellow Brazilians Fabinho and Roberto Firmino as the two teams lined up for the 4:30pm kick off.

But Keane, who memorably had a tunnel bust-up with Patrick Vieira when he was Manchester United captain, was furious with the scenes and typically pulled no punches.

"You're going to war. Hugging, kissing - don't even look at them," the Irishman said on Sky Sports prior to the game.

Presenter David Jones stepped in and asked: "Hasn't the game changed?" and that prompted a reply from Keane.

"The game hasn't changed that much, the players have changed, the players have changed," he added.

"You're going to war and you're hugging each other. Chat to them after the game - or maybe not even chat to them."

Plenty of fans on Twitter agreed with Keane's comments:

United went 1-0 up in the first half through Marcus Rashford's controversial opener. Martin Atkinson went to VAR but gave the goal despite Divock Origi appearing to be fouled by Victor Lindelof in the build-up.
