Richard Keys takes the piss out of Jamie Redknapp after Wilfried Bony’s Stoke double

You never forget how to banter

They’ve come a long way since Richard Keys asked Jamie Redknapp “did you smash it?”

Now Redknapp is combining a starring role on A League of their Own with his regular punditry duties for Sky Sports while Keys, or Keysy as we’re sure he prefers, is an anchor (that’s anchor) for beIN Sports.

We’re not sure how frequently Redknapp and Keys speak to one another nowadays but the former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder is still in the thoughts of the presenter who infamously parted ways with Sky Sports after his inappropriate comments about a female match official were leaked in 2011.

After tuning in to Monday’s Premier League clash between Stoke and Swansea, which finished 3-1 in favour of the Potters thanks to a Wilfried Bony double, Keys found the perfect time to take the piss out of the man he’d once commented would be “hanging out the back of it.”

Keys’ above tweet was referring to the gaffe made by Redknapp a day earlier when he’d suggested that Chelsea winger Victor Moses was a “young English talent.”

Of course Moses is neither all that young (he will turn 26 in December) nor English (he’s been capped 24 times for Nigeria) so Redknapp was understandably torn asunder on social media.

Redknapp probably won’t take Keys’ trolling to heart but Keysy’s got the perfect response in his repertoire if he receives an angry phonecall from the ex-player.
