Cape Town - Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane says he would be in prison if there was social media during his playing career...
According to the Irish Independent, the tough tackling and somewhat tempestuous Irish midfielder was known for his brash on-field antics but the player is happy that his off-field drama stayed out of the headlines.
A legendary midfielder for the Red Devils revealed his career may not have been so grand had camera phones been around during his time in the Premier League.
"If there was social media in my time as a player, I'd be in prison!" quipped Keane during a fundraising event in Ireland on Thursday evening.
Keane also shared why game days were seen as a day off.
"Saturdays were almost a day off for Manchester United because training games were harder than league games." said Keane.
Keane spent thirteen seasons at Old Trafford before failing out with Sir Alex Ferguson, an incident which saw him spend his last season at Celtic in Scotland.
Keane won 7 league titles, 4 FA Cup titles and was named the PFA Players' Player of the Year in 2000.
