Roy Keane himself was a boxer back in the day in his youth before going on to achieve all that he has achieved as Manchester United and Irish captain. Katie Taylor Revealed the uplift she got from the Cork man at her the “lowest point of my career.”
“When I lost in the Rio Olympics, the first phone call I got was actually from Roy Keane,” Taylor told The Daily Mail in an interview.
“He said, ‘keep your head up’. And he was very, very positive and that really does make my heart so happy.”
“He went out of his way,” Taylor continued.
“And it meant so much to me that one of my heroes, someone who I really looked up to as a child, gave me a call at the lowest point of my career.”
“They’re the things you don’t see. He has a great heart. And he’s someone who doesn’t look for any limelight for those sorts of things. It was just out of the goodness of his heart.”
