Manchester United legend Roy Keane has taken a jab at Arsenal, claiming their players are more interested in selfies and six-packs than winning the league.
Keane’s rivalry with the Gunners extends to his playing days, and it doesn’t seem to have withered one bit.
“Arsenal have some really good players – some good characters who roll their sleeves up,” said Keane.
“But they also have one or two players who are more interested in selfies and six-packs, guys who are trying to get their pictures taken every day of the week.”
“Listen, every year we hear the same thing about Arsenal being contenders. Instead of focusing on the Premier League, it’s all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches.”
Keane also hit out at Manchester City, saying they still weren’t good enough and that Chelsea were the team to beat.
“City have bought two players since last season ended but I don’t think their dressing room has been improved,” he added.
“Look at all the players they’ve bought over the last couple of years. I’m not sure many would get into the Chelsea team.
“For me, Chelsea remain the team to beat. Their team is the one with the strongest spine – John Terry, their goalkeeper, Eden Hazard – and if they can add John Stones to their team then they will be even harder to beat.
“The bottom line is that if Chelsea’s players show the same hunger and desire that they did last year then they’ll win the league. They will only be in trouble if they are complacent.”
