Roy Keane scolds Joaquലിn Felix for playing bad football. But he realizes that Cristiano Ronaldo is the smartest man he has ever seen
Roy Keane was one of the greatest players in Irish football history. But his skill on the field is not like that of a commentator, because he has acted in controversial styles. This time he released the action against forward Joao Felix. He had great respect for the player Cristiano Ronaldo.
Keane is a commentator on the Euro Cup for ITV Sports in Portugal. During the broadcast of Portugal ‘s 1-0 defeat to Belgium in the 16th round of the Euro Cup, Keane proved to be a big fan of Cristiano Ronaldo’s football. Even if the player has a performance below criticism.
The former striker said that CR7 is one of the smartest players in the world.
– Cristiano Ronaldo is the smartest player I’ve ever seen playing. I do not compare you to big names of the sixties or fifties because I have never seen them play. His intellect is awesome, the way he plays. Plus, it has the strategy and arrogance of the big players, ”he said.
When the subject was Joao Felix, the opinion changed. The former striker was upset at the performance of the player who entered the second half against Belgium.
– When the country needs him the most, this kid goes on the field and does nothing. In fact, it does things like this performance we see. It’s a good idea. “If I were Cristiano Ronaldo, I would catch him after the game,” Keane said.
He played for the Irish national team between 1989 and 2006. He also played for Manchester United between 1993 and 2005, winning the Champions League and FIFA Club World Cup, among other achievements.
