Roy Keane didn't think Barcelona's Champions League comeback was worthy of a selfie

Roy Keane didn't think Barcelona's Champions League comeback was worthy of a selfie

They might have recorded the greatest comeback in a Champions League knockout game ever, but Roy Keane reckons Barcelona’s celebratory picture might have been uncalled for.

The five-time winners of Europe’s top competition stunned Paris St Germain, winning 6-5 on aggregate having been 4-0 down, but Keane, who won the trophy in 1999, remained unconvinced.

Prompted by Mark Pougatch, Roy Keane answered: “No, no, I still say no. No to selfies, no, not in the dressing room. I still wouldn’t agree with that.”

We’re big fans of Glenn Hoddle’s hearty laugh in between Pougatch’s question and Keane’s answer too.

It’s a good job Manchester United’s former captain isn’t on Twitter then – we counted at least six players sharing this photo.

Meanwhile, Keane’s apparent idea of hell only got worse when the current Superbowl champions, and comeback kings in their own right, congratulated the Spanish side with not one, but TWO photographs.

Of course, these aren’t technically selfies, but we reckon the point still stands.

By the way, it is literally impossible to find a photo of Roy Keane without a trophy in his hands…
