The 3 Aston Villa Players Who Reportedly Got On The Wrong Side Of Roy Keane

In case you've missed it, today's Daily Mail have reported a number of stories from within the Aston Villa camp which contributed to the departure of Roy Keane.

Needless to say, they allege that their were a few rows involved. Here are the three players they named in particular.

Charles N'Zogbia

The Daily Mail report that Keane was 'exasperated' by N'Zogbia's attitude in training. Their source also told them that many of the Villa players felt they weren't paid enough to put up with his 'crap', demanding as high a standards in training as he would have had at United.

Fabian Delph


Apparently Keane and Delph took time in falling out. Shortly after his arrival, Keane reportedly criticised Delph in front of the squad during training. The English midfielder was having none of it and shouted in response 'Don’t try to fucking mug me off.'

Gabby Agbonlahor 

The straw that broke the camel's back. Keane's departure is said to have been sparked by a bust-up with one of Villa's longest serving players. Agbonlahor had been in discussion with Paul Lambert when Keane interrupted. Agbonlahor rounded on him, reportedly saying ‘Excuse me, but I’m talking to the boss!’

This is said to have sparked a massive row which culminated in the pair having to be separated. A few days later, Keane left the club.

Keane has said in the past that if he's chastising a players it means he thinks they've got more potential. So I suppose the likes of Agbonlahor and Delph – who've been two of Villa's best players this season – should take it as a compliment.
