Will Ferrell interrupts Sky Sports coverage to catch up with Roy Keane

Ferrell has been here, there and everywhere this weekend

Sky Sports’ pre-match build-up was interrupted when Hollywood superstar Will Ferrell came over to speak to the punditry line up.

Ferrell was in a humorous mood as presenter Kelly Cates told Gary Neville to pass his microphone over to which the actor said: “We’re bored stiff by Gary Neville.”

It also turns out that Ferrell and Roy Keane have quite the relationship as they embraced each other warmly.

When asked how they knew each other, Ferrell recalled when they both appeared in Soccer Aid as part of the charity game.

The American has been spotted around the country watching football and was seen watching non-league Wrexham – who are owned by Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney – in their game against Wealdstone on Saturday.

Speaking at the Etihad Stadium, Ferrell claimed that he was on a recruitment mission for his own side, LAFC.

“I’m on a recruiting trip for LAFC, of course, just seeing if any players at [Man City] measure up to the MLS.

“This is a trip we had planned a couple of years ago and it got delayed through covid so it’s a collection of old friends and we’re seeing four games in six days and having a great time.”

He was announced as LAFC’s owner in 2016 ahead of their inaugural MLS campaign two years later and has helped to bring a number of high profile names to the club, including Gareth Bale and Giorgio Chiellini in recent times.
