A Hard Act To Follow?

by | 5th, September 2002

‘THE so-called hard man Roy Keane is in the news again today, and once again his autobiography is at the centre of things.

”How about a day off? I was in your mag yesterday, the day before…”

”Roy so scared of City” says the Star, reporting that Keane bottled out of a book-signing because the shop was near the Maine Road stadium of local rivals Manchester City – in whose colours Alf Inge Haaland received his punishment from the firm but fair United skipper.

Actually, Keane didn’t pull out of the signing altogether. He simply suggested that he sat in a room on his own and signed books brought in by his minders.

”He’s let a lot of people down,” said store spokesman Louis Bruton.

He has indeed. What kind of example is that to set to youngsters aspiring to be the hard men of tomorrow?
