Real Men Don't Go Shopping

Roy Keene. Shy and retiring. A man who keeps his head below the parapet and avoids trouble and controversy.

Not!

This former Manchester United Player earned himself a 5 match ban and hefty fine after admitting in his autobiography to deliberately injuring Alf Inge Haaland in a dirty tackle that is said by some to have effectively ended that player's career.

The assault was in revenge for an incident some time before when Haaland had allegedly been taunting Keane through a match. Keane decided to trip him up, lunged at him, missed and damaged his leg which resulted in him being out of active play for nearly a year. What incensed him was that Haaland accused him of faking the injury. 4 years later he exacted retribution.

In his book "Keane - The Autobiography" Keane says;

"I'd waited long enough. I f****g hit him hard. The ball was there (I think).
Take that you c**t. And don't ever stand over me sneering about fake
injuries".


He also said;

"Even in the dressing room afterwards, I had no remorse. My attitude was,
'f**k him. What goes around comes around. He got his just rewards. He
f**ked me over and my attitude is an eye for an eye."

Wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of him would you?

Anyway, today he is once again in the headlines. This time he has spoken out - shock! horror! - against the WAGS! Says they are emasculating their men (although he doesn't use that word of course - it has 5 syllables). Rumour has it Victoria Beckham and buddies are furious. They have even considered ambushing him with their Prada handbags but decided not to in the end in case they break a nail.

He does seem to be one of those characters you either love or hate. Or just write songs about.
