Manchester United legend Roy Keane has launched a scathing attack on some of our players and claimed that they’re more interested in how they look in the mirror than winning trophies, the Evening Standard reports.
Keane stated that while we have a number of strong characters, he isn’t too impressed with a few players in our dressing room who constantly take ‘selfies’.
The former Man United skipper is prone to having the odd outburst and very rarely do they seem rational which often causes him to make the headlines.

“Arsenal have some really good players – some good characters who roll their sleeves up,” Keane was quoted as saying.
“But they also have one or two players who are more interested in selfies and six-packs, guys who are trying to get their pictures taken every day of the week.

“Instead of focusing on the Premier League, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches.”
Just how Keane has come to this conclusion doesn’t bear thinking about, but the focus on Arsenal and selfies must be addressed. In this new age of social media, Premier League players take the opportunity to connect with fans which has been made very simple.
Almost every player owns a social media account and the majority post regularly on there. Chelsea players are frequently on social media but, because they’re champions, are we saying that they are the only team allowed to connect with the fans?
Keane has never been the sharpest tool in the box, which is clearly reflects by his managerial career to date.
