Roy Keane has slammed Dele Alli and Eric Dier for “arguing like children” in Tottenham’s Amazon Prime ‘All or Nothing’ documentary.

The former Man Utd captain says he was “shocked” at what he was seeing, criticising the Spurs squad for always being on their phones.

The documentary went behind the scenes during the north Londoners 2019/20 campaign which saw the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino and appointment of Jose Mourinho.


Is Antonio Conte the ultimate pandemic manager?


“Spurs must be a hard job,” Keane said on Sky Sports’ ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ series (quotes via talkSPORT). “Imagine the culture at Spurs.

“Have you seen that documentary? When I watched that documentary – and I know it can get edited and all that – I was shocked [at] what was going on at the club.

“Even the players in the dressing room, the medical room – everyone was on their phones. They showed a couple of players falling out, maybe it was Alli and Dier, but they were arguing like children.

“They were going ‘oh you need to do your job’, there was no aggression! They were like actors with no emotion behind it.”

Keane also backed Man City to win the Premier League title this season, admitting you can “never bet against” Pep Guardiola.

“We did a game last year. I didn’t write off City, but I said they lost their mojo. Then they won the league like a doddle,” he said.

“I know they put in the hard work, but they won it from United being second. I’d never bet against City, I’ve learned my lesson from last year.

“It doesn’t mean Liverpool and Chelsea can’t pip them to the title, but Pep’s the man.

“I look at all the managers and he’s the best.

“You look at Pep’s CV and people say ‘he’s got the best players’, but you still have to manage them, find a style of play. If you were going to pick a team to watch, it’d be Man City.”
