Roy Keane respects Jose Mourninho, likes watching Chelsea. In other news, flying pigs discovered and NASA discovers moon is made out of cheese continuedâ€¦
Keane said: ‘Mourinho’s got somethingâ€¦ 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 momentâ€¦ That’s what used to happen to meâ€¦ 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.
