Sheringham reveals booze-fuelled row with Roy Keane on Man Utd night out… as pair didn’t speak for over THREE years


TEDDY SHERINGHAM has revealed a booze-fuelled row he had with Manchester United team-mate Roy Keane.

The pair played together during Sheringham‘s four-year spell at Old Trafford.

Sheringham was also team-mates with Keane at Nottingham Forest earlier in their careers.

Both players have large personalities and Keane wasn’t the only player Sheringham fell out with during his time at Man Utd.

Sheringham also famously fell out with strike partner Andy Cole.

And Keane’s time at United came to an end following a bust-up with legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson. 

But Sheringham has now lifted the lid on his row with Keane which led to the pair not talking for over THREE years.

As reported by the Times, Sheringham in a book published next week called ‘1999: Manchester United, the Treble and All That’, recalled a row which took place during a bus journey from a night out with team-mates in 1998. 

Sheringham wrote: “All of a sudden, Keany said, ‘Why don’t you f*** off back to London in your f***ing red Ferrari and your penthouse?’

“I went ‘Eh?; And he says, ‘Yeah, f*** off back to London’.

“I’m like, ‘Are you coming for me, Keany? Why are you coming for me, you Paddy? F***ing what?’

“And he went ‘f*** off’, and he goes on ‘f***ing red Ferrari, penthouse…’. 

“Then he jumped round, still with his bad leg, got me by the tie, pulled me towards him, grappling with him.

“Suddenly everyone’s going ‘what’s going on?’ and pulling us apart.”

Sheringham revealed instead of having it out the next day at training, Keane opted for the silent treatment.

The former England striker continued: “I couldn’t sleep that night thinking, ‘It’s going to go off as soon as I get into training’.

“I’ve seen Roy in the gym so I know it can go off. So I go in thinking, ‘Get yourself ready’. I actually go in to change thinking, ‘I’m ready for him’. 

‘You have your own cubicle so I was either next to Keany, or maybe the one after, and as I walked in, he’s there doing his shoes up.

“I walked in past him and I’m thinking he’s going to get up and boot me in the face. I’m thinking ‘here we go’.

“Keany gets up and walks out.

“He didn’t say a word to me. He didn’t say a word to me for the next three-and-a-half years.”

Despite the feud, the pair went on to have successful Man Utd careers.

They won the treble in 1999 and two more Premier League titles before Sheringham joined Tottenham in 2001.
