ITV's Compilation Of Roy Keane's Best Punditry Moments Is Thoroughly Entertaining

ITV have put together a three part ... yes, three part ... compilation of Roy Keane's best punditry moments over the years on the channel, and, to be fair to the them, it's 27 minutes of gold.

One could easily forget how long Keane has been part of their football coverage, with the compilation stretching back to include moments such as Nani's red card for Manchester United against Real Madrid in 2013. With Champions League, Europa League, World Cup and European Championship footage to choose from, it's no surprise the ITV Sport department found enough clips to match the runtime of an episode of Corrie.

Part 1

In the first part, Roma's defending, England World Cup hype, players hugging each other after matches, and Diego Costa are just some of the topics on the agenda.

Part 2

In part two, Keane doesn't like Eden Hazard's attitude, Man City's mood swings and Theo Walcott taking ten years to get settled into the Arsenal team.

Part 3

Francesco Totti, Nani, Arsenal and Nigeria are in the firing line in part three.

While speaking recently to The Times about working with Keane for Sky Sports, Micah Richards said: "Roy is an amazing guy — one of the nicest guys I have ever met. But it is not an act. When he is on camera, he believes that. He is like, ‘Look at them, they are all celebrating and they haven’t won anything!’" He added: "I try to get him to smile so people can see a different side to him. It hurts him so much to smile on air, but we will get there."

However, having watched those compilations you can definitely see the glint in his eye at some points. Not that he doesn't believe the essence of his point but his comic timing is also spot on.
