“Roy Keane is not warm, it’s like calling Micah Richards miserable!” – Tony Cascarino disagrees with Laura Woods’ assessment of Man United legend


Tony Cascarino says talkSPORT host Laura Woods describing Roy Keane as “hot” is like calling Micah Richards “miserable”.

Keane was one of football’s biggest names during his trophy-laden playing career, and carried that into his inescapable expertise.

Revered as a terrifying presence on and off the pitch, the Irishman walks through the rigmarole of post-match debates with uncompromising and often hilarious views on the game.

A number of in-game pundits have been bullied by Keane, but not talkSPORT’s Woods, who recently described the former Manchester United captain as ‘hot’.

His former Irish team-mate Cascarino was very surprised to learn this, having spent eight years playing alongside Keane on the international stage.

“I would never describe Roy as warm, it’s hard for me. It’s like describing Micah Richards as miserable,” Cascarino said.

“Roy is unique, I liked his company sometimes, but it’s not hot, that’s probably the only thing Roy isn’t. Obviously, it’s the start for Laura with Roy.

“He has a resume for bringing people to the table and having a conversation and sometimes he pushes it a bit over the edge and that’s how Roy works.

“Roy is quite an intimidating character, I was with him for eight years in the locker room and don’t get me wrong, there were some funny moments in there too, but there were a lot of weird moments!”

Co-host Natalie Sawyer told Cascarino that Keane may have mellowed over the years, or maybe different off the court, but Cas had none of it.

“No chance! Didn’t you see the work of the assistant manager and the fallout with the Irish players? He asked.

“I saw him pick up Jamie Redknapp on TV one day when Jamie was at a Tottenham game and Roy was watching him like Chuckie.

“He put Jamie in his place for a minute or two, Roy can do that, you never know.”
