Roy Keane slammed by Tottenham’s Serge Aurier for previous criticism

first_imgSERGE AURIER has blasted Roy Keane for his remarks about him as well as generally expressing little respect for players-turned-pundits.Keane had labelled him and Danny Rose ‘Dumb and Dumber’ after they struggled against Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold in a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool.2 Keane’s views clearly annoyed AurierCredit: Getty – ContributorBut speaking to France Football, Aurier has hit back at Keane and other former players who now work as pundits.He said: “I didn’t even want to respond to that.”Retired players who go on television and dare speak badly of current players, for me, these are not people who must be answered.“When you were still a player and the journalists spoke about you, you took it badly because you had a family …[now] you can afford to give your opinion.FORGOT HIS PAST”But, there, for me, he forgot that he used to be a player.“After all, since I am here, I happened to have bad matches, but one speaks to me football.”[Some] people are really fans.”2 Aurier in action for SpursCredit: ReutersKeane had been in typically withering form when it came to analysing the match back in October.INITIAL CRITICISMHe said: “The two Tottenham full-backs were dreadful. Dumb and Dumber, I’d call them.”I thought they were really poor.”You can’t compare them to Liverpool, the two lads who are absolutely fantastic.”Particularly going forward, okay defensively there’s parts of the games they can improve on, but going forward they’re absolutely fantastic.”That loss was another step towards Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking.MOST READ IN SPORTTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’He lasted just another month in the job as their form nosedived.The Ivory Coast international has remained a mainstay in the team throughout the transition from Pochettino to Jose Mourinho.He has started every league game bar one under the Portugese.last_img read more
