Keane: Mourinho Is A Disgrace

Roy Keane has warned Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, he would be “knocked out” if he tried to shake hands before the final whistle in Sunday league match.
Aston Villa boss, Paul Lambert, refused to take Portuguese’s hand as he prepared to head down the tunnel before the end of his side’s 3-0 defeat by the Blues at Stamford Bridge on September 27, and his assistant, Keane’s reaction was even more withering.
Asked about the incident as he launched his new autobiography, The Second Half, in Dublin on Thursday, Keane said: “It’s disgraceful.
“I’ve seen him doing it to other managers, it is a disgrace. The game is still going on. You wouldn’t do that on a Sunday morning, you would get knocked out.”
Keane was particularly critical of Ferguson’s comments about him towards the end of his playing days, the manager saying Keane could not accept he was not the player of old.
“I was 34 years of age, of course I wasn’t going to be the player I was when I was 26,” Keane added. “But thinking I didn’t know my boundaries…I think he might have said I was trying to manage the dressing room, and dead right I was – that’s what you do when you become a senior player.
“You get those responsibilities thrown at you. I knew my boundaries, I knew where I was at. I wasn’t expecting a five-year deal but the way I left disappointed me because I thought Ferguson and (David) Gill should have done better by me.
“I’m being quite polite by saying Ferguson, let me tell you. I could think of a lot worse things to say.
“This idea that there wasn’t good lads there, or that I had lost the plot at the end or players were intimidated by me is absolutely ridiculous.
