Roy Keane Brings Theo Walcott Crashing Back To Earth After Great Night In Europe

Roy Keane Brings Theo Walcott Crashing Back To Earth After Great Night In Europe

It has been a good fortnight for Theo Walcott. In three games, he scored he's scored four goals. That's five in all for the season.

Two of those came on Wednesday night against Basel.

On ITV's Champions League highlights show, Roy Keane and Lee Dixon were presented with a Walcott quote from during the week where the 27-year-old said that he 'wants it more than anyone else now'.

The smile on Roy Keane's face was immediate. You could tell what he had to say about Walcott's new attitude was not going to be majorly favourable.

It’s took him a while to get settled. Listen he’s had a good week. The guy needs to relax. Try to play well for the next seven or eight months.

Tonight was a lovely game for Arsenal. When they’re in that form and have that amount of possession, they’re great to watch – they could’ve seven, eight, nine goals easily.

But the crunch games are still to come for them, when the cold nights come in, with half the Arsenal players with their gloves on, so I wouldn’t be getting carried away with Walcott.

He scored some lovely goals tonight, with the simplicity of his movement, it was outstanding, but he’s got to do it over the course the next year or two.
