It was Leeds United vs Manchester United an age old rivalry in English football, Alfe-Inge Haaland was playing for Leeds United and Roy Keane was the player/skipper for the Red Devils. Then came the moment where Keane had one of the worst injuries of his career and the former Manchester United Physio Dave Fevre remembers Roy Keane’s incredible reaction to having to under go surgery.
“We were waiting for the surgeon,” Fevre told The Athletic. “Roy was sitting on his bed, I was sitting at the side, and he’d got the TV on. He was watching Celebrity Squares. Then, all of a sudden, he got the remote control and turned it off. He looked at me. ‘All right, then. So what the fuck’s going on with my knee?’
“I went through everything with him. I told him, in my opinion, what I thought it was. I told him that hopefully, I was wrong but at the same time, I was pretty certain I was not far off. The surgeon was on the way. The radiographer was coming in to do the scan. Everybody was doing what they could. ‘Well, let’s get on with it,’ he said. Then he put the TV back on and carried on watching Celebrity Squares.”
