No Time For Kolo Toure And 5 Of Roy Keane's Other Cutting Moments On ITV Last Night

Roy Keane was in cutting form on ITV last night for the Champions League highlights show.

Leicester beat Copenhagen 1-0 on Tuesday night - their third win in the Champions League this season. The Premier League champions have more points in Europe than they do in the league.

However, Keane is cutting them no slack for prioritising Europe of domestic competition.

No, no... no slack. It doesn't matter [that this is a one-off]. We've said it before. It's a really good group for them and they're doing well. Their confidence is growing and the whole club is enjoying it - why not?

They have to remember what got them to the Champions League and that is their bread and butter by doing well week in, week out in the Premiership. To me, they've obviously lost that bit of hunger and desire in the Premiership.

The goals they're giving away, the chances they're giving up, the lack of concentration, not staying with their runners, I've been really disappointed with this group of players and I'm cutting them no slack.

Kasper Schmeichel pulled off a crucial late save for Leicester against Copenhagen. Asked about the quality of the save by Mark Pougatch, Keane provided his 'Do you praise the postman for delivering the post?' philosophy.

Watch out for an awkward attempt at a calming rub of Keane's shoulder by Lee Dixon.

I don't think it's as great as everyone's making out. He's done well for Leicester but for me this is a standard save. That's what he's there for. That's what he's supposed to be doing. They're all praising him after the game but that's his job. It doesn't matter that it's the last minute, if that goes into the back of the net, I'm saying 'where's my goalkeeper?'

All this hugging players after the match as well, over-the-top stuff. My goodness, what's the game coming to?

Alexis Sanchez scored the opening goal in Arsenal's 6-0 win against Bulgarian side Ludogorets. It was a beautifully lofted finish for the Chilean. While Keane believes Sanchez has all the credentials to lead the Arsenal line, he feels the quality of last night's opposition has to be questioned especially due to the 'two stone overweight' goalkeeper.

Kolo Toure was at fault for both Borussia Monchengladbach goals as Celtic lost 2-0 to the Germans at Celtic Park. Lee Dixon believes that errors throughout Toure's career have been few. Roy did not agree.

I think he makes far too many mistakes. Over his career he does cost you.

Earlier in this Champions League campaign, Keane was full of praise for Pep Guardiola and Man City. After Wednesday's 4-0 defeat to Barcelona, he did have some criticism.

I think City's approach to the game was very brave but very stupid as well. I think a few of the goals tonight we from players guilty of overplaying in the wrong areas.

While he agrees that Spurs are progressing and have increased both their squad depth and quality, Keane believes they still have no chance of winning the Premier League.

This idea that they can win the Premiership - no chance. I don't care [that they're the only unbeaten team in the league]. I can't see them winning the Premiership.
