I really like Roy Keane. I’ve liked him so much as a player at Manchester United and now as manager of Sunderland that he has almost singlehandedly made me a fan of the team.
I don’t need to tell you why Keano’s the man but I found these comments he made yesterday about current players wives and girlfriends hilarious. Suffice to say, keep the ladies at home!
‘It’s important you bring the right players to the club. You can’t always be a Steve Bruce but you can be a character who comes in and gives 100% for the club. But I have to say I think the game is getting less and less characters. They are more motivated by lots of different things like money and London and living in shopping areas. Really you’re a footballer and when you’re retired you can live anywhere you want. But players are very much focused on where they are going to live and a lot of that is down to their partners who seem to be running their lives anyway. It concerns me really.’
