Roy Keane: Celtic told me job was mine but they didn't show how much they wanted me". Irish Independent. 7 October 2014. Keane had a Labrador Retriever named Triggs, who died in 2012. [185] Speaking in Dublin at his annual visit to the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, he spoke on the loss affecting him, "Triggs was great and went through a lot with me... you will have me crying in a minute, so be careful. She had a good life." [185] Triggs came to international attention in 2002 during the Saipan incident ahead of that year's FIFA World Cup, which saw Keane engage in a public quarrel and leave the squad. He said of Triggs, "Unlike humans, dogs don't talk shit." [186] Each man trails numbers, stats that speak for themselves. The Man United captain played 600 times and won seven Premier League titles and a European Champions League; Pietersen, double Ashes winner, is England’s most prolific run-scorer of all time in all forms of the game. In both cases, however, it is not the decade of triumph that they dwell on, but the manner of its ending. For all the sweat and glory that preceded it, their lasting focus is, sadly, on the monosyllabic exchanges in an office, each lasting “less than five minutes”, that marked the final act. As Oedipus or Othello might have explained in a post-match interview, at the end of the day, Brian, life just isn’t fair. Hodgson, Guy (26 August 1995). "Kanchelskis to make debut for Everton".

Now I kind of wish I hadn’t," Keane writes "Afterwards I was thinking, ‘I’m not sure why I f****** apologised.’ I just wanted to do the right thing. I said, ‘Don’t you f****** talk to me about loyalty, Carlos. You left this club after 12 months a few years ago for the Real Madrid job. Don’t you dare question my loyalty. I had opportunities to go to Juventus and Bayern Munich.” Keane’s own rise was meteoric once it got going, progressing from playing in the 2nd Division in Ireland with Cobh Ramblers to starting in an FA Cup Final for Nott’s Forrest within 12 months. It likely took a genius like Forrest manager Brian Clough to see Keane’s true potential and throw him straight into the Forrest line up as a starter at 19. a b c Ingle, Sean (18 November 2005).

Haaland never played a full game afterwards. However, Haaland did complete the match and played 68 minutes of the following game. [50] He also played a friendly for Norway in between both matches. [51] It was, in fact, a long-standing injury to his left knee rather than his right, that ended his career.

Archived from the original on 17 August 2007. I now much prefer the second book. Less distance from the subject, a much smoother read, and, as you say, a wiser, more reflective and more welcoming self-critical angle. Or maybe it’s because I’m a thirtysomething now and not an early twentysomething. The club concluded negotiations after the game and we always joked with Sheasy he had actually sealed the deal by playing like a f------ clown.Jonathan Wilson (22 April 2009).

Keane's former manager Sir Alex Ferguson had previously said that he wanted Keane to succeed him as Manchester United coach when he retired. In the wake of Keane's acrimonious departure from the club, however, Ferguson became evasive regarding Keane's prospects as a manager: "Young managers come along and people say this one will be England manager or boss of this club, but two years later they're not there. It's not an easy environment to come into, I wouldn't forecast anything." [88] Sunderland Ipswich 2–1 Coventry City". ITFC. 3 May 2009. Archived from the original on 5 May 2009 .

Roy Keane is honest about the nature of most soccer players. He’s frank about the nature of the news media, team managers and fans. He’s explicit about what it takes to win. And, most stirringly, Roy Keane is honest about the price one pays for not compromising on the things one believes in. Neville, Conor (7 December 2016).
