Jamie Carragher details what it’s really like working with Keane on Sky Sports

Jamie Carragher has detailed what it is really like to work with Roy Keane on Sky Sports.

The Liverpool legend, who won the Champions League at Anfield while making more than 700 appearances, has been a pundit since 2013.

He was joined by his former Manchester United rival in September 2019, who is known his brutal style of analysis.

It has seen Keane have arguments with his fellow pundits live on TV, such as a spat with Ian Wright after England’s loss to Croatia at the 2018 World Cup semi-final.

But Carragher has explained that he was very different when they first met on punditry duty.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the Liverpool hero said: “The first time I worked with him was ITV, I’d never spoken to him.

“I went down to breakfast and he was there on his own – shock! I spoke to him for about an hour and he was brilliant.

“You hear stories about characters at different clubs and you don’t know what they’re like until they come to your club.

“Roy Keane was one when everyone said he was a hot-head, then he was fine.”

Carragher went on to explain that he is a fan of Keane’s critical analysis on air.

He added: “I think he’s one of the best pundits out there, he is the master at the one-liner, getting straight to the point.

“He’s the master with one lines. Kills someone, finishes someone off. That’s Roy Keane’s style and he’s the best at it.

“When you work with people like that it keeps you on your toes. You have a team and everyone brings something different.

“That’s his style as a pundit and he’s the best at it, I love working with him.

“I would love to have a beer with him but he doesn’t drink.

“He came on the Christmas night with Sky, he didn’t drink but he was still there, he didn’t shun what was going on. He’s a team man and he got involved.”

It comes as Keane was hailed for his epic answer to a question during Manchester City’s draw with Liverpool.
