Roy Keane had a sharp response to the chants directed at Erling Haaland by Manchester United fans during Sunday's 3-0 derby win. The 23-year-old was motivated by the taunts from United fans, who brought up Keane's infamous tackle on Haaland's dad, Alf-Inge Haaland, back in the 2000 derby.
The Man United supporters chanted "Keano!" and "Haaland, how's your dad?" This seemed to fuel the Norwegian striker, as he scored the brace in the match.
When asked about these chants in the Sky Sports studio Keane playfully said that fans were probably singing for his namesake, fellow Ireland international Robbie Keane, who had a successful career in the Premier League with teams like Spurs and Liverpool.
He laughed: "I don’t know... Maybe they meant 'Robbie' Keane."
In his autobiography, Keane confessed that his infamous red card tackle on Haaland was a deliberate and vengeful act. He revealed that it was in retaliation for Haaland taunting him when he suffered a serious knee injury in a match against Leeds.
