Roy Keane has revealed three of the best players that he played with throughout his professional career.
During his time in the beautiful game we’ve seen many different sides to Roy Keane. We’ve seen the entertainer, we’ve seen the passive aggressive manager and author, and of course, we’ve also seen one of the greatest ever captains to grace the Premier League.
His tenacity on and off the pitch has made him one of the most polarising figures in the sport and given his performances in the punditry box, that doesn’t look likely to change anytime soon.
Keane has also played alongside some of the very best of his generation and during a recent episode of his Road to Wembley series alongside Micah Richards, he picked out a few of his chosen favourites.
“If I had to pick one because I played in midfield with him – Scholesy maybe. Paul Ince was a really good player and obviously I played with Paul McGrath with Ireland.”

Scholes is often lauded as one of the greatest midfielders of his era and that’s no surprise, but Paul Ince isn’t a name we typically see quite so often in these conversations.
Paul McGrath is a legend within the annals of Irish history and also for Aston Villa, firmly establishing himself as something of a cult hero during his playing days.
Of course, on the flip side, we imagine there are endless players who would list Roy Keane as one of the best teammates they’ve had.
Keane is likely to be in attendance for England’s Euro 2020 opener this Sunday as they prepare to meet Croatia at Wembley.
