Roy Keane shifted the blame onto teammate Gary Neville for the infamous horror challenge on Alfie Haaland.
The Irish midfielder has had a fair few red cards over the years but his most famous came against City for a challenge on Alfie Haaland.
Keane went in studs up on the Norwegian’s knee during the Manchester derby in 2001, earning himself a red card as Haaland was left in a heap.
The two had a prior history together when the United man suffered a ligament injury after tripping his opponent in a game against Leeds in 1997.
Keane recalled the tackle during a segment on the Overlap, where he hilariously blamed Neville for his red card.
“You didn’t help either running off to the linesman saying it’s only a yellow,” Keane stated.
“Gary ran over saying it’s only a yellow so when you say that to an official he’s going to go ‘well that must be a red’
“We’ll meet again…” 👀
