Watch: ‘Playing like a pub team’ – Roy Keane brutally trolls Arsenal
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane mocked Arsenal after their poor first-half performance against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.
Before the game at Forest, it was announced that the Gunners would replace their iconic red home shirt with an entirely white kit.
The move was part of club’s ‘No More Red’ campaign as they look to raise awareness about knife crime and youth violence in London.
“Every young person deserves the opportunity to express themselves. The opportunity to exist within a safe environment,” Arsenal legend Ian Wright said. “The opportunity to live free from fear of violence.
“We can never accept loss of life through youth violence as ‘normal’ in our city and it’s so important that we all work together to create a better environment for young people.
“By giving young people more places to play sport, more support, and access to individuals who can inspire them, together we can help make a difference to young people in London.”
On the pitch, both sides struggled to create any clear-cut chances during a very uneventful first half.
Keane, who spent three years with Forest during his playing career, wasn’t happy with the performance of either side during the first half.
But he still saved his most brutal dig for Mikel Arteta’s side, claiming that they looked like Real Madrid in the white kits but were playing like a pub side.
"They look like Real Madrid but they're playing like a pub team" 😡
Roy Keane isn't pulling any punches after that first-half display
