Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk insists he was not being arrogant in dismissing Manchester United's overly defensive display at Anfield.
Roy Keane is a former soccer player and current pundit for Sky Sports. As a player, he was most famous for being the captain of Manchester United and the Republic of Ireland national team. He also played for Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest and Celtic.
Keane is widely regarded as one of the greatest Premier League midfielders and captains of all time. At Manchester United, he picked up seven Premier League titles - winning the competition in 1993/94, 1995/96, 1996/97, 1998/99, 1999/2000, 2000/01 and 2002/03.
As brilliant as he was as a player, Keane was controversial due to his bouts of aggression, which at times not only caused pain to others, but also appeared to be against his own interests.
Roy Keane and Manchester United
Keane missed the final of the UEFA Champions League, a 2-1 comeback win against Bayern Munich, due to suspension. Recalling the incident, he said: "Although I was putting a brave face on it, this was just about the worst experience I'd had in football."
It is commonly claimed that the injury picked up from Keane's challenge ended Haaland's career. This is disputed, however, as he did play afterwards and it was reportedly an injury to his opposite knee which really did end his career. Keane has shown no remorse for the incident.
United lost the league title to Arsenal in 2001/02, but won it back in 2002/03. Keane developed a fierce rivalry with Patrick Vieira, who was Arsenal's captain during this era. The pair had a notorious tunnel bust-up on one occasion, but appear to have reconciled since and featured in the documentary Keane and Vieira: Best of Enemies.
In 2003/04, United were beaten to the Premier League title by Arsenal's 'Invincibles', who went through the whole league season unbeaten. Chelsea, who were just beginning to emerge as a force under the ownership of Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, finished second, and United third.
Keane left Manchester United by mutual consent on November 18, 2005 after having reportedly given an inflammatory interview to MUTV. His relationship with manager Sir Alex Ferguson had become strained by this point and appears to have remained so.
"I wouldn't forgive Ferguson," Keane told OffTheBall. "The media spin, how I apparently upset everybody, it was all nonsense.
"People said [Ferguson] always had the best interests of Manchester United at heart. Darren Ferguson (his son) won a medal. He was very lucky.
Roy Keane and Republic of Ireland
Keane had spells in charge of Sunderland and Ipswich Town and was an assistant at Aston Villa, the Republic of Ireland national team and Nottingham Forest.
Keane led Sunderland to promotion to the Premier League in 2006/07, helping them recover from a disastrous run in 2005/06 which had earned them relegation. However, he was less successful at Ipswich.
Roy Keane and punditry
Notably, Keane has fired witty quips at Richards and ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher about their career achievements. He mocked Richards for saying that he "burst onto the scene" and pointed out that Carragher "almost" winning the league was not the same as actually succeeding in doing so.
Keane started up his Instagram account in February 2021. He already has 1.3 million followers.
Roy Keane's net worth
Keane was reportedly paid £350,000 per year when he first joined Manchester United. However, he was soon earning millions.
He was angered when United officials put an increase in ticket prices down to Keane's improved contract, reportedly demanding an apology. At the time in 2000, Keane was said to be earning £52,000-a-week.
