Roy Keane

Country: Ireland
Club: Manchester United, Celtic
History: Roy Maurice Keane, (born in Cork, August 10, 1971) is an Irish footballer who currently plays for Celtic. He began his career at Cobh Ramblers, then made his name at Nottingham Forest before moving to Manchester United for a British record transfer fee in 1993.

He was captain of the Republic of Ireland football team for a number of years, representing his country in the 1994 World Cup and playing a major role in their qualification for the 2002 World Cup before he was sent home after an argument with the team's manager, Mick McCarthy.

He was also captain for much of his time at Manchester United, winning the FA Premier League seven times and the FA Cup four times, and played a major role in helping the team win the UEFA Champions League in 1999.

During his time at United, Keane was widely regarded as one of the finest midfield players of his generation, known for his inspirational leadership, excellent tackling and distribution abilities. Manager Alex Ferguson regards him as his best player ever during his 20-year reign at Manchester United. Additionally, ex-player and BBC pundit Alan Hansen is of the opinion that Keane is the best player to have played in the Premier League since its inception in 1992. Although Keane attracted praise as a player, he also had disciplinary problems, notably being suspended twice for the same foul on Alf Inge Haaland after admitting that the foul was deliberate in his autobiography.

He is not related to fellow Irish footballer Robbie Keane.

Roy Keane Quotes:

"Fail to prepare, prepare to fail."

“A lot has been written about my age and my injuries. A lot of people think I'm going to be 94. I'm actually 34 and I feel quite good. I'm sure the fans will judge me on what I do on the pitch, not what I say.”

"I can look back and think 'I'm just one of the luckiest people in the world'."

Coach Roy Keane:

"I would always try to give the players the benefit of the doubt. The one thing I have learnt from Brian Clough and Alex Ferguson is I always thought they were fairly fair.

"If you made a mistake, they were quite happy to put their arm around you but eventually, they would come down hard on you. That is all you want as a player. If the manager is fair with you, you have no complaints."
