Roy Keane's Take On Row With Wayne Rooney Is Outstanding

Roy Keane's Take On Row With Wayne Rooney Is Outstanding

Wayne Rooney told an incredible story about a row with Roy Keane a few nights ago, but the Irishman's take on the bust-up is even better.

United's record goalscorer Rooney was very good on Monday Night Football alongside Jamie Carragher, with his story involving Keane arguably the best bit.

"I always remember my first away trip, having that argument with Roy Keane," Rooney said on Sky Sports.

"We were watching the rugby before we were playing Newcastle United away and he went to get some food, so I put the X Factor on and I hid the remote.

"He wasn't happy about it and we had an argument. But I think straightaway, he respected me more for standing up to him. He looked at me, and he respected me that day for being big enough to have a go back at him."

As we know, there are always two sides to every story and Keano's, told in his second autobiography, is typically more expletive-heavy.

"The only time I had a disagreement with Wayne, it had nothing to do with a pass he should have given me, or a tactical switch," Keane says in The Second Half.

"We were in a hotel, the Friday night before a game - I forget where. The team would always sit down and have a meal together, at about seven in the evening.

The Moment A Brave Wayne Rooney Returned To The Pitch With An Injury Showed His Elite Mentality

"There was a big TV in the room. I was into rugby league, and there was a big game on. I went to the toilet, came back and someone had changed the channel to something else - something stupid, I can't remember what it was. A few of the players were sitting there, giggling away.

"I said, 'Where's the rugby league?' I knew Wayne was up to something. I could tell by his face. I said, 'Where's the remote control?' He said, 'I don't know.' I said, 'You fuckin' do.' I didn't exactly storm out, but I couldn't be bothered trying to get the remote control back, so I decided I'd watch the rest of the match up in my room.

"I came down the next morning for the pre-match meal and, obviously, I'm very good at letting things go - and Wayne was brave enough to come up to me. 'Did you ever find the remote control, Roy?' I think I told him to go and fuck himself.

"It was the only disagreement I ever had with him. I think he later claimed in one of his books - he has a deal to write ten - that I sent a security man to his room to get the remote control, but that's bullshit."

Bloody hell! Any sane man in the same situation opposite Roy Keane would be shitting a brick, but a young Rooney clearly had no fear whatsoever!
