Roy Keane tells Brazil manager ‘save dancing for nightclub’ as he doubles down

Roy Keane has sensationally told Tite to "save dancing for nightclubs" in another brutal jibe at the Brazil manager.

The five-time World Cup winners are enjoying a scintillating tournament in the Middle East, putting four past South Korea in their Round of 16 tie with their age-old flair fully on display. Tearing apart their Asian opponents via some outrageous one-touch football, their third goal was captured perfectly by BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce who simply stated "brilliant, brilliant, brilliant" as Richarlison rolled the ball home.

Celebrating one of the moves of the tournament, the samba stars immediately broke out into a pre-rehearsed dance routine by the corner flag with coach Adenor Bacchi, better known as Tite, even joining in.

Joined by goalscorer Richarlison on the touchline, the Brazil boss mimicked the Tottenham Hotspur star's chicken cluck celebration. But his dancing was not enjoyed by ex-Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane in the ITV studio.

"It's like watching Strictly. I can't believe what I'm watching," fumed Keane when analysing the contest at half-time. "I don't like this. I think it's disrespecting the opposition. It's four [goals] and they're doing it every time.

"I don't mind the first kind of little jig – whatever they're doing – but they're still doing it after that and then the manager getting involved with it. I'm not happy with it, I don't think it's very good at all."

Tite though hit back at Keane's comments in his post-match interview, saying: "I have to be careful because there are always the nasty ones who say it is disrespect. It is a demonstration of joy, a celebration."

He later added: "I will not comment on those who do not understand our history and our culture. It is part of our education. Kids dance in schools because it's Brazilian culture and that's not disrespectful. We will continue to do things in our manner."

Never one to let an argument settle, Keane has doubled down on his assessment of Brazil's on-field dancing stating it shows a lack of "respect".

"I love watching Brazil and what they stand for," he told Sky Sports. "I don't get how a manager can dance when the game is still going ahead, he's got an opposition manager 10 yards away from him, you've got to watch that.

"The game is about respect. Dance afterwards in the dressing room, or in the nightclub, that's not a problem. But why is it okay for Brazil to do it during the game? If everyone has a dance after a goal, the games will be going on for three days.

"Do you know what they should start doing, when coaches do their pro licence, show the managers how to do a little dance on the sideline? Forget tactics."
