‘He’s got a bit of a temper’ – Man Utd legend Roy Keane jokes about tunnel bust-up with old Arsenal rival Patrick Vieira

, ‘He’s got a bit of a temper’ – Man Utd legend Roy Keane jokes about tunnel bust-up with old Arsenal rival Patrick Vieira

ROY KEANE poked fun at an angry Patrick Vieira at the end of Crystal Palace’s defeat to Liverpool.

The Eagles boss looked fed up as walked off the pitch next to the officials – who controversially awarded Liverpool a late penalty which sealed the win.

The Sky Sports team noticed his sour mood and Keane took the opportunity to make light of the situation by joking about his former nemesis.

Presenter David Jones said: “I’m not sure Patrick’s had enough…We know how scary he can be in the tunnel.”

And Keane replied jokingly: “I’ve always said he’s got a bit of a temper.”

The pundit is of course referring to the infamous clash he had with Vieira in the tunnel ahead of a match between Manchester United and Arsenal.

On that occasion at Highbury in February 2005 Keane took exception to comment made by Vieira towards Gary Neville.

And during that exchange almost 17 years ago a fiery Keane said to Vieira: “Who the f*** d do you think you are?

“F***ing hell, you f***ing s*** you, you f***ing s***… every week it’s Senegal this – well, f***ing play for them then.

“I’ll see you out there, you c**k. See you out there, see you out there. Shouting your mouth off you… every week you’re making out you’re a nice guy.

“He’s f***ing starting, every f***ing week he’s shouting his f***ing mouth off. F***ing picking on Gary Neville? Why can’t he pick on one of us?”

Vieira kept his cool in the tunnel as Keane spouted off and he did so once again at Selhurst Park on Sunday as he walked off.

But he fumed at the decision post-match, telling Sky Sports: “It is a huge mistake by the referee and that took away the hope to comeback. Of course it had a massive impact.

“The referees today didn’t have a really good game at all. It happens too often at home, especially when we play these big teams.”

He also said to the BBC: “The wrong decision by the referee had a massive impact on the game. You should ask the referee to talk to you and explain the decision himself.

“They’ve got it wrong. I’m really frustrated by the decision. I have seen it many times, it is never a penalty.”
