Gabriel Heinze has revealed that former Manchester United captain Roy Keane knocked him out when he told him to “f*** off”.
It’s a brave man who swears at Keane and the Argentine paid for his mistake.
He has told Argentine TV that the altercation happened after a Manchester United defeat.
“We lost a game and I went in the dressing room first and Roy Keane was second. I liked to go first after the game; I didn’t want to speak to anyone as we lost,” he said.
“I didn’t understand English, just the bad words. I heard my name and “f*** off” by Roy Keane, the best player.
“I knew that was bad so I stood up to him, this idol of Manchester, this great guy who everyone loved, and replied: “F*** off, you”. I don’t remember what happened next.”
Heinze then clarified that his memory was unclear because Keane had knocked him out.
