Roy Maurice Keane Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Roy Maurice Keane (born 10 August 1971) is an Irish football manager and former professional football player. He is the assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland national football team and Aston Villa. In his 18 year long playing career, he played for Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest, and Manchester United, before ending his career at Celtic. Keane was a dominating defensive midfielder, noted for his aggressive and highly competitive style of play, an attitude that helped him excel as captain of Manchester United from 1997 until his departure in 2005. Joining the club in 1993, Keane helped United achieve a sustained period of success during his twelve year tenure at the club. He then signed for Celtic but retired as a player less than a year later. Keane is regarded by many football players, managers and critics as the greatest captain in English football history.He played at international level for much of his career, representing the Republic of Ireland over a period of 14 years, most of which he spent as captain. He played in every Republic of Ireland game at the 1994 FIFA World Cup, although he was sent home from the 2002 World Cup after an incident with national coach Mick McCarthy.He was appointed manager of Sunderland shortly after his retirement as a player and took the club from 23rd position in the Football League Championship, in late August, to win the division title and gain promotion to the Premier League. Keane's arrival was cited as the key catalyst in Sunderland's recovery. He managed to keep Sunderland from relegation in the 2007–08 season but in his second season as a top-flight manager he left his position with Sunderland in the relegation zone. In April 2009, he was appointed as manager of Ipswich Town but was sacked after 20 months in January 2011 due to the club's position of 19th in the Championship.In November 2013, he was appointed assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland national football team by manager Martin O'Neill. Keane also served as a studio analyst alongside Ian Wright, Lee Dixon and Gordon Strachan, fellow contemporary footballers of his time, for ITV's football coverage up until 2014.

1As a player you could physically go up against people. As a manager it is not really allowed. I've made a conscious effort. When the players cross that line you can't tackle, you can't pass, you can't score. The major part of it was to try and keep a calm head. If you do lose it, do it in the dressing room, otherwise you'll go to an early grave.
2You see different people in different lights [as a manager]. As a player I didn't care where I was going, I just wanted to beat them and showed little or no respect for any player. I'm definitely more respectful to other managers. Rafael Benítez couldn't be more helpful. Arsène Wenger has been brilliant.
3The discovery that there was a serious drinking sub-culture at United was delightfully reassuring.
4[asked if he ever wakes up at four in the morning and wonders who should be playing left-back] Four? I would love to sleep that long. If you want a really long career you have to find a way of switching off. I do it when I'm out walking my dog, Alex Ferguson got into horses, others get into wine. Some players like going shopping, which is not my scene. A lot of them turn to golf. I tried it, didn't like it. I have to walk. If I couldn't I'd be in a padded cell by now.
5Ian Holloway was managing Plymouth. I didn't get a real chance to celebrate the victory because Ian pulled me into a meeting to tell me all about the problems he was having getting training facilities. I was thinking, 'I don't give a shit about your training facilities. I just won a game of football.'
6Fabien Barthez and Laurent Blanc used to smoke together in the toilets, at half-time. They were French - they smoked. If it had been a couple of Irish lads, I'd have been shouting at them: 'Yeh dirty bastards - get out!'
7[about his 'revenge' foul on 'Alf-Inge Håland'] My attitude was, fuck him. What goes around comes around. He got his just rewards. He fucked me over and my attitude is an eye for an eye.
8I was asked last week by ITV to do the Celtic game. A couple of weeks before that I was asked to do the United game against Celtic at Old Trafford. I think I've done it once for Sky. Never again. I'd rather go to the dentist. You're sitting there with people like Richard Keys and they're trying to sell something that's not there. Any time I watch a game on television I have to turn the commentators off.
9[about his 'revenge' foul on 'Alf-Inge Håland'] I'd waited long enough. I fucking hit him hard. The ball was there... I think. Take that you c**t. And don't ever stand over me sneering about fake injuries.
10[to referee Graham Poll during the Highbury tunnel incident] Tell him [Patrick Vieira] to shut his fucking mouth!
11[on Triggs, his Labrador Retriever] Unlike humans, dogs don't talk shit.
12[on longtime rival Patrick Vieira] I don't think we'll ever be bosom buddies buying each other a drink in the pub but out of everybody I ever faced as a player, he drove me to become better. Obviously Arsenal were the team that really challenged Manchester United and, for a short time, went past us. And as their leader Patrick was immense. Without doubt I'd put him alongside (Zinedine) Zidane, (Paul) Scholes, (Steven) Gerrard and (Frank) Lampard as one of the very best I've ever played with or against, he was that good. On his day, when he was driving Arsenal on with the sheer force of his personality, he was unplayable.
13Happiness is not being afraid.
14If it had come to a fight, Patrick [Vieira] could probably have killed me.
15Hopefully kids will look at me and see that your dreams can come true.
16[on the Highbury tunnel bust-up between him and Patrick Vieira] I'd read something in the match programme about the charity work Patrick supported in Senegal, where he'd been born. I said "If you love Senegal so much, why don't you fuckin' play for them?" I think he said something smart to me about Ireland and the World Cup. It was grown men, bitching.
17I don't think some of the people who come to Old Trafford can spell football, never mind understand it.
18These so-called big stars are people we are supposed to be looking up to. Well they are weak and soft. Priorities have changed in football and they are being dictated to by their wives.
19Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] has officially retired about 5 times... The man's a clown... People are going on about the game and agents and directors of football and managers losing their jobs, but we should be worried about people like him... Clowns. That's the last time I'm going to say clown... If he's the vice-president of FIFA, God help us all.
20The last time I was charged by the FA they had a murder lawyer in against me, so it's going to be a hard case to win.
21Over analyse, paralyse, you mustn't over analyse.
22I got Robbie's [Robbie Savage] mobile number and rang him. It went to his voicemail: 'Hi, it's Robbie - whazzup!' Like the Budweiser ad. I never called him back. I thought: 'I can't be fucking signing that'.
23I don't believe skill was, or ever will be, the result of coaches. It is a result of a love affair between the child and the ball.
24There has been lots of things said about me over the years. I am happy to comment on people's opinion in football I respect, but Tony Cascarino is a man I certainly do not respect, for a lot of reasons, and if I told you, you would be shocked. So the day I worry about Tony Cascarino will be a very sad day of my life.
25Aggression is what I do. I go to war. You don't contest football matches in a reasonable state of mind.
26I think players tend to get anxious if they've not really done things properly - like eating, resting or training. If you're fully prepared you've got nothing to worry about - it's just a game of football.
27Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
