Roy Keane has become a huge TV personality within the world of football since his playing – and seemingly managerial – days came to an end within the professional game.

The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland skipper has managed to continue his reputation of being a hard-nosed no-nonsense individual from the pitch to the studio and has won a number of fans with his analysis, perhaps as he says it how he sees it and is not scared of doing so.

Keane has managed to form an unlikely friendship with Micah Richards during his time, which has had many fans delighted with the results that it has produced as would those that would be had when they visit, although it seems he may not be friends with a former United man if his latest reveal is anything to go by.

Naturally, many will immediately associate the tenacious former midfielder with his scuffles with Patrick Vieira and Alf-Inge Haaland, however it would seem he and Peter Schmeichel did not quite see eye-to-eye despite being on the same team.

In an interview with his former teammate, Gary Neville for The Overlap, the fight had been brought up that had happened between them in the early hours of the morning at a hotel the Manchester United team had been staying in.

Keane said: “The good thing with me and Peter fighting that night – and it was his fault, he held his hand up and apologised – was that it was all fine.

“We were grown men in pre-season, a bit of tension in the group, which can happen. We were young men all playing to get into the team and for a contract. And Peter wanted a fight…”

“I vaguely remember Bobby Charlton opening the door and seeing me and him…  But I think we won the league that year, so it helped.”

He added: “I came down the next morning and I thought ‘I’m sure I was fighting… I can’t even remember?’ And one of my fingers was all bent back…

“I think Butty [Nicky Butt] was on the scene and he explained what happened. I think Peter had a black eye to be fair to him.

“It had been brewing. It does not just kick off. There’s tension.”

God only knows what would have happened if Schmeichel and Keane lined up against each other once the Dane had joined Manchester City. Perhaps the same thing that had happened when Neville was captain for that game.
