In his new book, Keane has once again written about his infamous tackle on Haaland.
Keane is quoted by several national newspapers as saying in The Second Half: "There are things I regret in my life and he (Haaland) is not one of them."
After the new quotes emerged on Monday, Egil Ostenstad contacted his fellow ex-Norway international Haaland on Twitter, writing: "Alfie. R Keane is at it again. Could we have a Twitter response mate?"
Haaland replied by writing "can't take a man seriously when he's got a beard like...", with the message being accompanied by a picture of Hussein. The post was subsequently deleted.
