Roy Keane Throws Incredible Shade At Spurs For Amazon Documentary

Roy Keane loves to dig out a few people in his role as TV pundit, but few clubs have been at the end of his tirades more than Spurs.

The Irishman doesn't seem too impressed by the way they conduct themselves both on and off the pitch, this year alone having a go at their mentality, lack of trophies, and quality in the squad.

In short, he doesn't think they're up to much. In fact, it seems the more he learns about them the less impressed he is.

Appearing on the brilliantly entertaining Micah Richards & Roy Keane Driving Home for Christmas, the former Manchester United captain said that he couldn't believe some of the stuff he saw in All or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, the fly on the wall documentary that charted their journey over the 2019/20 campaign.

He told Richards how the attitude of the players was what worried him the most, with Harry Kane included in that bunch.

Everyone likes [Antonio] Conte don't they, his CV is brilliant. He's gone in there and Spurs must be a hard job.

Do you know what word I'm going to use, and I hate using, but the culture at Spurs. Have you seen that documentary?

When I watched that documentary, and I know it can get edited, but I was shocked with what was going on. You had players in the dressing room and medical room and everybody was on their phones.

They showed a couple of players falling out, I think it was [Dele] Alli and [Eric] Dier, but they were arguing like children! They were going 'you need to do your job', there was no aggression. They were like actors, there was no emotion behind it.

Harry Kane was doing a talk before the games and oh my god. I was like 'Harry, you need to liven up man'.

First of all, if you're going to speak before every game players are going to get bored of it. Why do you think you need to speak before matches?

You know when people have a huddle before a match and there is about 600 staff in there, you kind of lose what it's about. I think the bus driver was in it and the chef! I would be like 'ye get out of this circle of whatever we're doing'.

But I like Spurs, I have a soft spot for Spurs.

Here's the 'confrontation' between Dele Alli and Eric Dier that Keane mentions.

It's safe to say he wasn't exactly pleading for a second season of the show.
