Roy Keane was just one step become part of Juventus but something went wrong.
During his stay at Manchester United, the player aged 48 turned out to be a leading midfielder.
The Irish sportsman was never afraid of challenges and appreciated getting stuck into the Italian side during the club’s series of blockbuster encounters with them in the late 1990s.
Lippi, the ex-Juventus trainer saw great benefits in Keane’s back, so he was eager to bring the legend to Turin after his glorious days in 1999. Unfortunately, the deal failed due to the fact personal terms weren’t agreed.
Lippi told that he respects Keane a lot. The legendary sportsman nearly managed to become part of Juventus but talks failed.
By the way, previously Lippi had good a relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson, whom Roy Keane bullied this week.
The ex-Manchester United player dared to accuse Alex of nepotism and an attempt to provide his spouse a job at Old Trafford.
By the way, Keane took a lot of heat for publicly having a go at Jon Walters right after the ex-Ireland midfielder faced a series of hardships.
