Former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder Roy Keane has stunned the football world by suggesting that someone involved in football in some capacity is not doing his job as well as he should be, it has emerged. Appearing as a guest on Goals on Sunday, football writer Nick Miller recalled the incident, which apparently occurred at a press conference ahead of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifier in Austria last month: “What Roy said was really quite withering. We were all a bit shocked. And after making the comments, he fixed Henry Winter – who hadn’t even said anything – with an icy stare. You wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of him.”
When contacted by this website for clarification, the current Ireland Assistant Manager said that he “stood by what [he] said”, but refused to comment further on the matter.
