The England striker sold the car straight away after a run-in with the Republic of Ireland midfielder
Peter Crouch once sold his Aston Martin after a run-in with Roy Keane at a set of traffic lights.
The former Liverpool man made the hilarious revelation whilst promoting his new autobiography, ‘How to Be A Footballer.’
Renowned as being one of the funniest and most genuine blokes in football, it comes as no surprise to see the former England man make hilarious revelation after hilarious revelation.
Meanwhile Keane has fashioned a reputation in the game as being one of the most driven and determined individuals, who took no prisoners during his career.
More recently, he has begun to upset several Republic of Ireland midfielders in his position as assistant manager, with Martin O’Neill intervening to back his No.2.
It comes as no surprise then to know the former Manchester United captain didn’t take too kindly to seeing Crouch wearing sunglasses in an Aston Martin, blaring ‘speed garage.’
Crouch was on BBC’s Afternoon Edition and recalled one of the best stories we have ever heard.
He said: “I was playing for Liverpool and England, so I’m thinking, ‘I’ve arrived’, so the Megane can go for an Aston Martin. But I knew it wasn’t me. Getting in it was a struggle, and I never felt right in it.
“But I pulled up alongside Roy Keane, with a bit of speed garage playing, the sunglasses on, window down, arm out. Then I looked at Roy and he looked at me, and you’ve seen Roy look at people in that way. He looked at me, and it’s the smallest I’ve ever felt.
“It was a look of sheer disgust. I have to thank Roy, I don’t even know if he knew it was me or some idiot stopped at the lights, but after he took off and left me in his wake I looked at myself in the mirror… and sold the car that week, and took a big hit on it. It wasn’t me.”
Crouch arrived at Anfield in 2005 and went 19 matches without scoring for the Reds. AT the same time, Keane was one his way out of the Premier League – set to join Celtic after 12 years at United.
Bet he didn’t drive up to Scotland in a fancy sports car, probably opted for a nice, sensible Skoda instead.
