Roy Keane continues to entertain the masses with his punditry on Sky Sports, but one of the more surprising elements of his TV appearances is his relationship with Micah Richards.
The pair have struck up an unlikely relationship on our screes, filling something of a 'good cop, bad cop' role. Keane can't resist having a dig at Richards whenever the opportunity presents itself, with today the latest example.
Sky Sports aired an interview with Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden ahead of the club's meeting with Liverpool this afternoon, with the 20-year old referring to former City defender Richards as 'world class' during his playing days.
While Keane seems to be a big fan of Foden, he couldn't help but call out his summary of his colleague in the studio.

I think the important thing for Foden, like any young player, is to play regularly. He's had one or two opportunities over the last year or two, [David] Silva's now left. It's unfair to compare him to Silva because Silva is one of the greatest players we have seen in the Premiership.
The key for him now, he's got all the talent, can he do it week in, week out? He's made one or two mistakes, he's a talented kid. Consistency, can he do it week in, week out?
In his interview he came across really well there. Obviously with his stuff about Micah, he probably needs to be drug tested for that.
What came across in the interview was he said that he wants to learn. He's 20-years old, he's a kid. Playing week in, week out can only help him.
Having made waves last week with his assessment of Manchester United's squad last week, he is in a more forgiving mood today.
