Roy Keane thinks Arsenal players too focused on “selfies and six-packs”


Roy Keane has a long history with Arsenal. He also has a long history of speaking his mind.

The former Manchester United captain nearly brawled with Arsenal’s Patrick Vieira in the tunnel before a match in 2005, which has now become one of the most famous incidents in a long line of “Roy Keane going nuts” moments.

It seems like Keane still has a bit of a problem with the Gunners ten years later, this time with the players’ affinity for taking shirtless selfies.

There’s too many Arsenal players interested in selfies, I think, whatever they are.

Instead of focusing on winning Premier League titles, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches, which is the way things are going.”

They’ve got good players, really good players, it’s just one or two of their players are more interested in selfies and six-packs.”

There’s a good chance Roy Keane still uses an old school a flip-phone and has legitimately never taken a picture with it, and that’s the way I would want it to be.

Some coaches have expressed their dislike for all the selfies and social media going on in the locker room, and players have been punished for using their cell phones on the bench. However, that’s just the way things are now, in all of sports, and Roy Keane can’t change that.

Whatever Keane may think, Arsenal is the top contender to take the Premier League trophy away from Chelsea. The Gunners have scored 14 goals in four preseason matches, and if they beat Chelsea in the Community Shield, Wenger’s men will head into the Premier League season with an added boost of confidence.
