It has been revealed as to why eccentric former Manchester United captain Roy Keane departed Aston Villa.
According to The Daily Mail, tensions between Keane and several senior players have been simmering for some time and it got to high boiling point where Keane couldn’t take it anymore.
A club insider said there was a bust-up at their Bodymoor Heath training ground on Thursday which began during the session and is thought to have continued afterwards.
Keane left Villa Park after five months as Paul Lambert’s assistant on Friday claiming he could no longer combine the job with his role as No 2 to Republic of Ireland boss Martin O’Neill. That was to hide the main truth.
The former Manchester United captain’s relationship with several players is said to have become strained with Keane struggling to accept what he felt was a lack of intensity in training from the players.
