Who … wins the ugliest foul prize ever? Most likely, Roy Keane. It’s hard to forget the Irishman’s intervention during a Manchester derby that put an end to the career of Alf-Inge Haaland, the father of the Borussia Dortmund striker. A premeditated tackle, done for revenge, as Keane himself revealed in his autobiography. It all stems from a dispute three years earlier, when Haaland senior accuses Keane of simulating an injury. The midfielder, who on that occasion breaks his ligaments, does not forget. And as soon as he can, he pays back everything with interest. Any regrets from the former midfielder? Not at all. Whenever he can, he repeats it: he would do it again. And the second episode of Road to Wembley is no exception, or almost.
REGRETS – The Irishman is the protagonist, together with the former City and Fiorentina Micah Richards, in a series of episodes broadcast by SkyBet. And the defender didn’t miss the opportunity to talk about Keane’s … malice, something that is now almost legendary. The former United midfielder, however, is keen to set the record straight. No regrets, whatever he did. “Can I tell you something? I have never regretted anything I did on a football field. Never, not once.” Well, almost. The red cards, those maybe even Keane admits it would have been better to avoid them. “Sometimes I was sent off and I left the team and my teammates”. But enough, he stops there.
HAALAND – And so Richards can’t help but ask Haaland about the bad luck. But even that is not a regret, on the contrary. It’s part of her job: by her own admission, Keane took the field to hurt people, not to injure them! A very particular reasoning, which the Irishman explains to his former colleague: “For me taking the field was a battle. Did I go on the pitch to hurt my opponents? Of course, and I never apologized for this. Even the opponents. they tried to hurt me, but I never whimpered, ‘oh, dear me’. But I never went out on the pitch in my life with the intention of specifically injuring an opponent. Did it happen? contrast in the middle of the field, the chances of someone getting seriously hurt are many “. A philosophy … all of him.
