Man United legend Roy Keane: Why I’d pay to watch Arsenal
Manchester United legend Roy Keane admits that Arsenal are one of his favourite teams to watch
Roy Keane has revealed that Arsenal are one of the few teams he would pay money to go and watch play.
The former Manchester United captain was part of the fierce rivalry between the Red Devils and the Gunners during Sir Alex Ferguson’s time in charge at Old Trafford.
However, the ex-Republic of Ireland international clearly has a lot of respect for the north London side, if his latest comments about the club are anything to go by.
Speaking on Sky Sports on Tuesday night, former midfielder Keane said: “There are not many teams I would pay to watch but when Arsenal are at their best, I would pay to watch them. Even now.
“I think they’re style of play is brilliant.”
Arsenal have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 season, when the likes of Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry were coming up against Keane.
The Gunners will be hoping to mount a genuine title challenge this term after they finished fifth in the Premier League last season.
The north Londoners kicked off their Premier League campaign with a thrilling 4-3 win over Leicester City at The Emirates last Friday night.
Keane’s former side Manchester United also made a positive start to the season when they thrashed West Ham United 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend.
