Watch: Roy Keane's Dig At Old Foe Patrick Vieira Ahead Of Reunion Is Incredible

Whether he means it or not, Roy Keane's comedic timing is absolutely impeccable.

We have seen countless examples of this in his punditry in recent times, with his ability to throw in hilariously cutting remarks to other pundits unmatched.

We have also been blessed with a number of such incidents on show during 'Micah & Roy's Road To Wembley', with the Irishman and Micah Richards in top form as they travelled to London.

The last episode of the series was released online today, with Patrick Vieira not spared by one of Keane's jokes.

Keane and Vieira had plenty of intense battles in their playing days and it was clear the two men did not get on. However, they would later work together on ITV's punditry team and are set to be reunited for the Euros.

Richards quizzed Keane about his relationship with the former Arsenal captain, and when guest Gary Neville chimed in to ask what Vieira was up to these days, the Cork native couldn't resist a dig. To be fair, he also poked a bit of fun at himself in the process.

You can see his comments from 5:10 in the video below.

Richards: What are you and Vieira like now? Have you sorted your differences out?

Keane: Yeah he just panders to me and that's it! Look, they were just battles on the pitch.

Neville: Is [Vieira] coaching still now, what's he doing?

Keane: He just lost another job yeah! Why do you think he's doing the punditry? He lost his job, that's why we're all fucking doing it!

Vieira was sacked by French club Nice in December of last year and has yet to take up another role.

Here's hoping that there are a few fireworks between himself and Keane in the TV studio in the coming weeks.
