Keane's 'Sex' Comments About WC Manager's Wife Is Prob Why They Didn't Get On At United

Roy Keane came out with a classic Roy Keane line during the World Cup game between Iran and Spain on Wednesday night.

He said that himself and Iran boss Carlos Quieroz did not see eye-to-eye when the Portuguese manager was assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

He was there for two different spells, once in 2002-03 before heading for Madrid and then from 2004-08.

Keane was with United until 2005 and had a couple of years under the Portuguese man but the former Nottingham Forest and Celtic midfielder doesn't have fond memories of working with him.

Here's what he had to say about him.

However, after the laughing had faded about Keane's comments, a few people started to point out online another reason why the pair might not have got along, and it's down to a quote in Roy Keane's second Autobiography.

Roy said that the United players at the time needed to mix it up in training but Carlos was having none of it. Keane's book tells the rest:

“No, Roy, we need repetition — that’s what we need. Repetition.

“And I said, ‘Carlos, do you always make love to your wife in the same position?’

“And I think he went, ‘What — where is this going.’

“I said, ‘You change the position, don’t you? Sometimes you have to mix training up a little bit. That’s all I’m saying.”

"I haven't a clue why I said that - I still don't," he finished before admitting that sure enough, the boss had to get involved to tell the pair to cop on.

Mentioning a man's sexual activities with his wife was probably a step too far, Roy.
