Whilst plenty of the headlines in the papers show Roy Keane in a negative light, it’s important to provide a bit of balance.

In his new autobiography, The Second Half, Keane talks about a conversation with his United supporting son.

“I still have a soft spot for United, and thank God I do.”

He asked his son which team he supported, to which the answer came back: “United.”

When Keane asked why, his son replied: “Well, I was born in Manchester, and I’m not going to support City, am I?”

Keane was satisfied with that response.

“That was a good enough reason. And I thought to myself, ‘I better get us some season tickets.’

We went to see them recently and I was going, ‘Come on! Fucking hell! Come on!’

I want them to do well.”
