Middlesbrough signing Mido: Keane almost convinced me about Sunderland

Middlesbrough's goal hero Mido has revealed he was almost convinced into joining Sunderland last week by their manager Roy Keane.

He said: "It was a tough decision, especially after I met Roy Keane. I was very impressed by the way he played but if you go to meet him you see a totally different person.

"But I decided to come here. It doesn't mean I do not think Sunderland or Roy Keane will do well. I really think they will, but it was my decision to come here and now I can focus on doing well."
