Speaking ahead of Leeds' game at Leicester City on Thursday, manager Jesse Marsch was interrupted by a journalist's phone ringing.

The American was busy answering a question before the ringtone started. The Leeds boss saw the funny side to it and helped the unfortunate journalist know who was calling him.

Who's is that? It's Keith Webster.

The 48-year-old then jokingly suggested that the journalists should develop a fine system for that and that he'd like to participate.

Roy Keane Comparison

The manager's reaction to the situation has gained comparison to Roy Keane's reaction back in 2010. Whilst managing Ipswich Town, the Cork native was speaking on Ireland's failure to reach the World Cup when he got interrupted. Keane's reaction to it showed that he's no-nonsense approach isn't just used on the pitch.

Whose phone is that? That's the second time it's gone off! Why don't you turn it off? It's the second time that's it gone off. Why don't you put in on silent? Why don't you turn it off?

The culprit's response was that he would turn it off in a minute and that he'll just let it ring out. However, the former Manchester United captain was not impressed with the answer.

You're just going to let it ring? Oh, that's good manners

Different Approach

Unai Emery's press conference have also fallen victim to a ringtone. However, the former Arsenal boss had a different approach, answering the call to see who interrupted him.


I am going to say, Jordan Spencer. I can answer it? Good afternoon, I am Unai Emery, how are you? You are working.

The caller quickly hung up, probably thinking they got the wrong number.

With phones being an essential tool for journalism now, Jesse March definitely won't be the last manager we'll see react to a phone call.
