Roy Keane recounts supporting Tottenham growing up – but says he’s ‘not sure why’ he loved Spurs as a youngster

Roy Keane in Manchester United kit must have been a terrifying sight for most opposition Premier League players in the 1990s and early 2000s.
The former midfielder was a quality player, gave everything for the red shirt and is rightly viewed as a club legend. However, his loyalties elsewhere when he was younger.

In the build-up to United’s Premier League clash against Liverpool on Sunday, Keane went off on a slight tangent, talking about supporting Tottenham growing up.
Both Man United and Liverpool are well-supported teams in Ireland but Keane decided Spurs were the team for him as a child.
He made it clear he was committed to the Old Trafford cause the moment he signed, before questioning why he chose to support the north London side in the first place.
“Growing up in Ireland you were either a United or Liverpool fan. Celtic obviously but strangely enough I supported Spurs – not sure why but I did.

“As soon as you sign for Man United, they’re [Liverpool] the team you want to beat.
“We played against Jamie’s [Carragher] teams over a number of years and they weren’t really challenging for the title but I never really went off the pitch ever leaving the pitch thinking ‘that wasn’t so hard’. Every game was tough physically and mentally.
“I have a lot of respect for Liverpool but you knew from United’s point of view that they were the games you had to win. You go to Man United, you go to the big clubs and it’s about being a part of beating these big teams.”

A young Keane would have been happy with Tottenham’s result on Sunday as they got past Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.
Goals from Serge Aurier and Harry Kane put Spurs 2-0 at half time. David McGoldrick pulled one back for the hosts but Tanguy Ndombele’s wonder strike sealed a 3-1 win for Jose Mourinho’s men.
