Roy Keane has added another chapter to his book "The Second Half" which was well received when it launched back in October, and the updated version is due out later this month.
The Daily Mail has secured an advanced copy of the updated version of Roy Keane's autobiography, and they have detailed Keane's observation that Tim Sherwood was very eager to take over at Aston Villa, even while Paul Lambert was still in charge.
I went to watch Villa against Bournemouth in the FA Cup a few weeks before Paul was sacked and Tim Sherwood was sitting behind me. I just thought, 'All right....
Some men go to matches if they think there's a job there for them. I believe Tim had been at two or three games.
It's not a criticism of Tim. It's part of the game, it's the industry we're in.
I'd go the other way myself. If I thought the manager was under pressure and I was somehow being linked to the job, I'd avoid the place.
What makes these quotes more interesting is the fact that Tim Sherwood was quite vocal about his unhappiness at the speculation over his future while he was the manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
Keane also suggested that he doesn't see Christian Benteke as a top striker due to the performances he saw in training:
He wasn't one for scoring many goals in training. With all the top strikers I'd worked with, the top ones always loved scoring in training.
Although that view comes into question when you factor in Benteke's incredible recent scoring form.
We can't wait to get our hands on the updated version of the book.
