Roy Keane can’t resist throwing a dig at former Aston Villa player

“I’m always quite overwhelmed by Roy Keane.”

TalkSport presenter Laura Woods has revealed that her favourite person to work alongside is Roy Keane.

This may come as a surprise to some given his reputation and tendency to be a bit short with people at times, but the radio star insists that he’s been nothing but wonderful.

“The highlight for me, though, was sitting next to Roy Keane. I’m obsessed, I just think he’s the best person.

“He was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I’ve worked with him once before in the Carabao Cup final last year and was a little bit scared of him because you are, as you know his persona.”

Roy Keane was an assistant coach at Aston Villa during Gabby Agbonlahor’s time as a player.

Woods replied: “Maybe I’ve been lucky. With a pundit, all you can ask is they answer all your questions.

“During the game, I just sat next to him for a little bit to say ‘tell me what you think Peterborough are doing right, what more do you want from City?’

“He was so generous with his information and so warm, I just loved it. It was great. I’m always quite overwhelmed by Roy Keane.”

The former Manchester United captain and Agbonlahor have a history together from their time at Aston Villa and make no secret of their distaste for one another.

The former Aston Villa captain had claimed that the Irishman’s man management skills were “0/100.”

Agbonlahor added: “Did you ask him about me?”

Woods said: “I did actually. He said ‘sorry, who is Gabby Agbonlahor?’”
