Roy Keane admits he had a DONER KEBAB once hours before a cup game with Manchester United …
Roy Keane has admitted that he once had a kebab just three hours before a top-level match with Manchester United while chatting with fellow commentator Micah Richards.
The Sky Sports duo have continued their Road to Wembley streak ahead of the upcoming European Championship, and Richards has decided to ask their renowned spiky ex-pro about the nutrition of footballers today.
Speaking frankly and honestly, Keane stated that the level of his days is a gap compared to the current harvest.
Roy Keane left Micah Richards in hysteria after revealing he had a kebab before a game
The Irishman revealed: “I played a cup game at home in front of Crystal Palace and had a kebab three hours before the game.
After Richards went into hysterics and calmed down, Keane continued.
“A kebab from the chopper. Three hours before the game.
Before a cup game with Crystal Palace, a young Keane had no food in the house and instead went to take out a snack – but he now admits that football habits are very different
“You can get away with it when you’re younger, but of course you pay for it later. You think you can get away with it, laugh at it a bit, and be an asshole.
“To be fair, I lived alone and had no food in the house.”
Keane further noted how this is so different from today’s footballers, and how dietary habits and the popularity of personalized chefs help ensure careers last.
Turned to Man City starlet Phil Foden for an example, the United legend insisted that the attacking midfielder could dominate well beyond the dawn of a normal career, just like Cristiano Ronaldo.
Keane believes dieting means people like Phil Foden can emulate Cristiano Ronaldo
Keane added, “I saw Foden being interviewed the other day, he was about cooking. He said, “No, I have a cook.” He has a cook!
“Foden is really fueling up. He’s probably having a real breakfast.
“He’s recovering, he’s eating the right food at the right time, look at Ronaldo.
“So Foden will also benefit from it at 36 or 37. Guaranteed that he will still play at a high level.”
