Love them or loathe them, this is one very good interview between Gary Neville and Roy Keane.
The former Manchester United colleagues take Jet, Roy’s dog, for a long walk and the relaxed style of interview leads to Keane being more natural than you may be used to seeing him. He’s outspoken, as you would expect.
Keane talks of footballers he played alongside, of those he found impossible to manage, of his time with the Ireland squad, of his days drinking and of starvation diets.
He opens up about his wish to get back into management and asks why certain underachieving managers continue to get jobs (are you watching Garry Monk?)
He recalls nights out on the town while with United and Ireland, of lying to Alex Ferguson about how much he drank, he recalls Jack Charlton’s relaxed policy on socialising and clears the air about his fall out with Mick McCarthy.
The interview is funny, informative and revealing. I found it to be a very enjoyable watch.
