Pep Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp? Man United legend Roy Keane answers who he'd rather play for

Roy Keane

Roy Keane was in fine form on Sunday evening.

The Irishman was on punditry duty for Sky Sports during the Premier League games yesterday.

He made headlines before Man City played Liverpool when he disputed Phil Foden's claim that Micah Richards was world-class.

“[Foden] came across really well in his interview, obviously the stuff he said about Micah, he probably needs to be drug tested for that," he said.

At half-time of the Man City vs Liverpool game, he absolutely destroyed Kyle Walker for giving away a penalty.


When asked how Mane won the penalty by Dave Jones, Keane replied: "Because he's up against an idiot.

"Kyle Walker... people keep telling me he's playing well. I don't think so. I think this guy is 30 years old, an international player... but he's a car crash."

And he produced another comedy moment after the game.

Richards asked Keane whether he would rather play under Pep Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp.

Keane's answer was typical of the man.

"How long have I got?" He replied.

"I probably wouldn’t want to play for any of them because that means I’d have to play for Liverpool or Man City which wouldn’t suit me."

His comment drew laughter from both Jones, Richards and Jamie Carragher.

Keane probably wasn't even attempting to be funny but that's just the way he is.

He speaks his mind and he has absolutely no care in the world what anyone thinks. It's a breath of fresh air and a reason why he is such a good pundit.

He did reserve some praise for Guardiola and Klopp.

"I spent more time watching the two managers," Keane said, per the Daily Star. "Just their whole demeanour, their shouting, balling - you can hear them, what it means to them.

"Both managers are world class who have won big prizes."
