Keane: Arsenal players ‘more interested in selfies and six-packs’

Republic of Ireland assistant Roy Keane has said that Arsenal’s players are more interested in their looks than winning titles.

The former Manchester United captain was giving his assessment of Arsenal’s Premier League title ambitions in Ireland’s Sunday World newspaper where he said they are too obsessed with “selfies and six-packs”.

The addition of Chelsea’s goalkeeper Petr Cech to Arsene Wenger’s squad has placed the Gunners in a good position to scupper Chelsea’s bid for back-to-back Premier League titles.

However, Keane was dismissive of Arsenal’s ambitions, saying: “We’ve the same thing … [every year]. There’s too many Arsenal players interested in selfies, I think, whatever they are.

“Instead of focusing on winning Premier League titles, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches, which is the way things are going.

“They’ve got good players, really good players, it’s just one or two of their players are more interested in selfies and six-packs.

“They’ve lots of good players, good characters who roll their sleeves up, just not those who are trying to get their pictures every day of the week, selfies.”
