Roy Keane
thinks Jose Mourinho has ‘the edge’ over the other Premiership managers, including Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who managed Keane for so many seasons at Old Trafford. Sunderland’s new boss admitted to admiring Mourinho and his team in an interview printed in this weekend’s Sunday Times.

Roy Keane respects Jose Mourninho, likes watching Chelsea. In other news, flying pigs discovered and NASA discovers moon is made out of cheese continued…

Keane said: ‘Mourinho’s got something… A blind man could see that. And he has the edge at the moment.
He plays games and I think they can have a big effect on his team and
on the opposition.

Do you remember when Chelsea played United at Stamford Bridge,
end of last season, and there’s two minutes to go in injury time, and
he gets up and walks up to where the United lads are, and he’s shaking
Alex Ferguson’s hand and the game is still going on? Two years ago no-one would have done that to Alex Ferguson.

‘That’s what good managers thrive on, that kind of slight. People love to criticise Mourinho, but I like watching Chelsea. They’re well organised; they know their jobs.’

Keano also revealed he sympathised with disgraced French midfielder
Zinedine Zidane when he was sent off in the World Cup final for butting Italy’s Marco Materazzi: ‘I could understand what he did 100%. I could
sense his frustration: he’d just missed a header before that, then a
pass went astray; you could see he was getting tired, and all you need
is a flipping comment at that moment… That’s what used to happen to me… You see, at that moment it doesn’t matter who is watching,
doesn’t matter that it’s a World Cup final. It could be a park field.’

Blimey Roy, say what you see.

    Roy Keane supported Zinedine Zidane? He would. He was a thug on the field, was Roy Keane. Not a legend – a violent thug who nearly crippled Alf Inge Haaland with that savage tackle – snapping his cruciate in the process. Whoopee! Shouldn’t’ve been such a brute, should you Roy? But that’s Keane. A violent thug.

  2. Scot says:

    Funny, Man Utd’s so – called tough nut skipper Roy Keane actually cried as he left Old Trafford for the final time – or so The Sun reported. Bet that did your hard man image a lot of good, Roy – Man Yoo’s tough nut crying like a baby. You’re meant to be a hardman, Roy – you’re an Irishman. Show a bit of guts and grit!

    Whoops! Sorry, mate. To all you Red Devils, Roy’s a legend and should always be revered – but to Magpies fans like me, he was a violent bully on the field. In case everybody’s forgetting, he nearly paralysed Alf Inge Haaland with that appalling tackle and then was alleged to have clocked that boy one outside his mansion. I’m sorry – but Roy Keane was a hardman and a bully.

    I was at the Bridges shopping centre last week and I actually met Roy as I was leaving Virgin. Although I’m a passionate – in fact fanatic -Newcastle fan and was in my Newcastle shirt, Roy was very friendly – we chatted for a while and although he was a real tough guy on the field, he seems to have mellowed a lot and is now a nice guy. I said good luck to the Black Cats this season and I got Roy’s autograph. All bad things I said about Roy are now rescinded – he seems a really decent, genuine guy.

    I love jose mourninho.. I never he left from chelsea infact.He is the person who cause chelsea to the glory of success past 3 years.Nobody in Stamford bridge do that before this anyway!!!! Why they should sack mourninho????Is it because of lost 3 or 4 games in premier league??? U always can’t win in one of the stuff es league in world again and again..Sometimes it’s good to lost some games i terms of learning new thing in our life….Why that stupid Roman couldn’t understand this???? We as chelsea fans were very very very very disappointed to what Roman done to jose…Disappointed

    I must admit I was a bit saddened by Roy’s exit from Old Trafford. My cousin Tommy – a massive Red Devils fan – rang and told me about it. I felt dreadful for Roy – as he was a truly great player with awesome guts and spirit. I was at Roy’s testimonial match as well – because Celtic are my native team – I’m a Glasgow boy born amd bred – and I definitely saw a tear in hard man Roy’s eye. I also know he did have a little cry when he left Old Trafford – Tommy said he had.
    And I really like him for giving those two little boys who’ve got that muscle – wasting illness their scooters. That truly shows hard man Roy has got a kind heart – as was shown when he did that appeal for an organ donor for a dying girl. A truly decent guy, is Roy.
