Roy Keane/Jack Warner war of words


Recommended Posts


quote:Keane's dissatisfaction was largely reserved for Warner, a man the FA has been courting as it seeks to host the 2018 World Cup finals. “The man is a clown,” Keane said. “I spoke to him on Wednesday and told him what I thought of him and where I think he should go. He's writing these letters and it's under Fifa's heading just to impress everybody.

“Not once has he written me a letter about Kenwyne, who got injured playing in a friendly match for Trinidad. They even selected Carlos Edwards last season when he was out with a broken leg. I've always given support to players going on international duty, 100 per cent. It's just ridiculous that this clown is writing letters through the media.

“They don't insure their players, so we're footing a massive medical bill for Kenwyne. There has to be give and take. The word ‘clown' just suits him. I just told him he's a disgrace.”

Keane's broadside prompted another letter from Warner. “I chose to respond on a Fifa letter-head because your callousness showed utter disregard for Fifa's regulations,” he wrote. “May I remind you that a player's greatest honour is to represent his country, in spite of the fact that you chose to walk away from yours during the 2002 World Cup. Poor Sunderland.”
