Sunderland boss Keane: Only the wife gets me excited

Sunderland boss Roy Keane shrugged off calls from fans to celebrate more on the touchline after his cool response to Michael Chopra's winner against Spurs on Saturday.

Keane said: "I'm very happy inside but what do you want me to do? Jump on the table? Strip? This is me being very, very happy.

"I spoke to the players beforehand and said this is where we want to be. Tottenham at home, a beautiful day, full of punters.

"It's a great life for the players and they have to enjoy it and be part of what we hope will be a good future for Sunderland."

The Manchester United legend added: "It takes a lot to get me excited. Ask my wife!"

On Chopra, Keane declared: "If you create chances for him, he knows where the back of the net is.

"A lot of top strikers' goals, like those by Van Nistelrooy and Lineker, were scored from six or seven yards and not 25 yards. Michael had one chance and scored - beautiful."
