The dynamic duo were joined by Gary Neville and Jill Scott to name a joint XI of Manchester City and United stars as part of coverage ahead of the all-Mancun FA Cup final.

Richards, boisterous as ever, got the conversation going as the quartet continued to discuss the right-backs.

Looking at Neville, the ex-City star explained: “Let’s get the elephant out of the room, I was a better right-back than you Gary.”

Neville quipped, “That’s a big elephant,” before Richards relented, adding, “I thought so, right?”

However, Keane seemed stunned by the claim before he chimed in and said, “You were no better than Gary.”

The 51-year-old then added: “The quiz is over now, let’s get serious. You were no better than Gary.” The first half of his sentence had Richards and company in hysterics.

After the laughter subsided, Richards argued he was better than Neville at some things, to which Keane rebuffed by talking about the overall package.

Richards tried to prove his point by saying: “But he was on a great team. I played along.” [Antoine] Sibierski and David Sommeil.


Neville then asked, “Who?” Richards exclaimed, “Exactly.”

Keane’s next quip proved to be the nail in Richards’ coffin when the Irishman said: “But they would say the same thing about the game with you.”

This joke sent the entire panel into hysteria again.

And it seemed to do the same for viewers, with one fan responding: “Roy’s a box office hit. Just say it like it is. Class.”

A second said: “That’s brutal of Keane!! 😂😂😂.”

“This guy really is BOX OFFICE,” explained a third.

A fourth replied: “You gotta love this guy. Man is just a natural talent. Even when he badmouths players because they perform poorly, it’s easy to see that malice doesn’t exist.”

A fifth remarked: “Love the loyalty of Roy. He’ll beat up Gary, but if anyone else tries Gary, he’ll support and stand up for him.”

Another typed: “‘They would say the same thing about playing with you’ Roy Keane is so perceptive with the jokes.”

It wasn’t the only time the notorious hardman Keane showed his lighter side in this episode.

He also displayed his wry but effective humor as Neville recalled a time when he was punished by Sir Alex Ferguson after a poor performance in a 3-1 loss at Maine Road, City’s old stadium.

Neville recalled: “He was pretty mean at times, the boss.

“So he sent me out for the second half and suddenly, I think after three or four minutes, he substituted me after half-time.”

“So of course I had to walk away with the whole crowd… Oh my god.”

Keane cut him off, “And you still call him Sir?” and shook his head, causing Richards and Scott to get excited again.
