Roy Keane interrupted on Sky Sports for "stupid" Leeds remark

Roy Keane was corrected on Sky Sports after he labelled Leeds "stupid".

The Manchester United legend was providing analysis on his former side's clash with rivals Leeds, when he slammed the Yorkshire side, who were trailing 4-1 at the break.

Keane said: "To be fair to Leeds, they have got a lot of courage – a lot of stupidity as well – but they have been getting chances."

It was at this point that Sky Sports presenter David Jones interrupted, saying: "Naivety".

Keane responded, without skipping a beat: "Yes, sorry. Naivety… they deserve that goal, they certainly kept going.

"And we know what Leeds are about, for all their weaknesses, they have a lot of strength and spirit, they deserved that goal, and they will keep going.

"But it could get worse for them in the second half."

Former United captain Keane was heavily criticised back in November for using the same word to describe Kyle Walker following Man City's draw with Liverpool.

Richard Keys was among those to hit out at the Irishman, calling his comments "cheap".

"We were always very much aware that if we were going to criticise then it had to be done constructively. That we could offer both explanation and education," said Keys.

"Andy Gray did that better than anyone else – and he's still doing it. Teams and their managers back then were so sensitive.

"I can only imagine what would've happened If we'd ever called Gary Neville a 'car crash' and an 'idiot'. And there were plenty of opportunities!

"You can see where this is going can't you? What a disgrace Roy. Cheap. Even by your standards.

"How would you have described your assault on Alf-Inge Haaland – an incident that would've seen you arrested anywhere other than on the pitch?"
