Man Utd great Keane: Scumbags at Aston Villa

Manchester United great Roy Keane has slammed the players he encountered at Aston Villa.

Keane branded several at Villa "scumbugs" during an Overlap show.

"We had a brilliant dressing-room at Manchester United, and you assume it's the same everywhere - it's not," said Keane.

"It's only when you go to another club and see so-called professional footballers, 'imposters' I call them. I went to coach at Aston Villa (in 2014). Honestly, there were players at the club like scumbags. They would have been scumbags on a building site.

"They didn't train properly, 'Maybe not today'. They didn't speak to staff properly. Then you wonder why they don't win anything, because they've people like you in the dressing-room!

"The strange this is, you turn up on time and train properly and they think there's something wrong with you. No, you're supposed to train like it's the last training session you'll ever have. They're like, 'Nah, not for me'."
