Cork’s most famous footballer Roy Keane, known just as much for his quick wit as his fancy footwork, has the world talking after taking part in an hour-long interview with Gary Neville.
The Overlap, which was posted on YouTube, is a Sky Bet show fronted by former footballer Gary Nevile who played with Roy back in their heydays.
The interview, which was released on Thursday 26 August, was watched by three-quarter of a million people within 24 hours.

The 60-minute interview takes place on a walk in a woods, with Roy’s dog Jett joining them for the stroll.
The all-encompassing interview talked saw the lads talk candidly and casually about a number of topics including Roy’s time managing Sunderland and Ipswich (0:00-11:47) and his time with Man United and his departure (11:48-22:25).
Roy’s diet, nights out, the current state of football and his time with Ireland (31:08-43:56) as well as that row with Schmeichel, his parents and spending £11,500 for a watch (22:26-31:07).
