Roy Keane calls for Phil Foden to be drug tested for calling Micah Richards world class
Keane was never letting this one go...
None of us saw it coming, but all of a sudden, Roy Keane and Micah Richards are everything we've ever wanted from a punditry double act. Despite their ties to opposing sides of Manchester's footballing divide, a fine bromance has blossomed between the two since they started working together on Sky Sports.
More evidence of this was seen ahead of Manchester City's Premier League clash with Liverpool on Sunday, as Keane was asked for burgeoning City talent, Phil Foden.
In an interview with Sky, Foden, a boyhood City supporter, had discussed his memories of following the club through his childhood, when Richards was part of the first team.
"He was one of my idols," he recalled. "He was one of the best right-back in the world at the time. It was just a shame he had one or two injuries."
Keane, of course, was never going to let the moment pass.
"The key for him [Foden] now, is to do it week in, week out," Keane said. "He's made one or two mistakes but is a talented kid.
"His interview, he came across really well there. Obviously, his stuff about Micah, he probably needs to be drug tested for that..."
Richards, at this point, broke into his infectious laugh.
