    Brutus' Brutish Virtues says:

    It shouldn’t have been in Russia.

    Ulkig Meme says:

    I mean hindsight is 2020 of course but at least Russia has a strong football heritage.

    Alex Хлапов COYG says:

    yes but it was so much fun

    Peter Lampropoulos says:

    Why? Are you racist?

    Biggi R says:

    Russia and Qatar are only footballfans no footballnation

    CHULUMANCO NXIWENI says:

    Nobody:

    E.Haaland: What you did to my father…it’s not right…he just wanted to live his dream…it’s not right

    TheLastAngryMan01 says:

    Whatever other faults Roy Keane might have, he’s no Yes Man.

    UFO says:

    He’s there, and the world Cup Shouldn’t be.
    I guess he took the job because he’s broke.

    TheLastAngryMan01 says:

    @UFO Rather that than all the pundits who took the money and let on that all is fine and dandy. And the money comes from ITV, not the Government of Qatar.

    naim shah says:

    Dnt see why it shouldn’t be in Qatar

    Thank You JC says:

    He is a yes man, that’s why he’s jumping on the band wagon

    TheLastAngryMan01 says:

    @Thank You JC Oh yeah, a man with a history of falling out with his employers is a yes man. He even had a Barney with Souness on air yesterday FFS.

    yodaisgod2 says:

    But Roy’s there because he’s being paid to.

    Thin Redline says:

    @yodaisgod2 Except that there are millions more people watching….

    yodaisgod2 says:

    @Thin Redline yet nothing is being done about it. See how it hasn’t changed a thing?

    Thin Redline says:

    @yodaisgod2 I didn’t think I’d have to explain this but the world cup has only just started, millions of new people will become aware of what’s happening there. Of course nothing is being done about it yet but the more people that become aware of what’s happening the more pressure is on Qatar to bring about change, sadly it will be for economic and not for moral reasons. Yes, the WC has significantly ramped up the pressure to improve their human rights record

    J money says:

    @TheLastAngryMan01 what beef who is anyone to tell a country how it should be run or if u have issues with the countries practise. Can u go into someone’s house and tell the owner how they should run their household? Again if you don’t agree or refuse to adhere to their ways of being. Don’t go simple

    TheLastAngryMan01 says:

    @J money “Who is anyone to tell how a country should be run”- did you feel the same about apartheid South Africa, for instance? Countries practicing modern slavery shouldn’t expect a free pass if they are going to host global events.

    Robert Meadows says:

    Condemns it while he’s there covering it

    Sebastian Mathew says:

    @the 70s why?

    the 70s says:

    @Sebastian Mathew why not?

    Sebastian Mathew says:

    @the 70s i already told… It’s his job🤦. You are the who is supposed to answer why……. (smh)

    the 70s says:

    @Sebastian Mathew why.

    ThePandaahBear says:

    @Sebastian Mathew I feel like all these accounts are people paid by Qatar. Like the “fans” they are buying

    UFO says:

    “Shouldn’t be here, Shouldn’t be here”
    Says him from there………….
    Fkd up on that one roy.

    ThePandaahBear says:

    It’s his job. Also it’s a much stronger signal if you’re saying it while being there.

    John Doe says:

    International Football tournaments should never be held in countries that exclude rather than include. I agree with Roy.

    Henry Widjaja says:

    International football should not be held in countries that invaded and killed millions of people all over the world.

    Seung Kim says:

    That’s a very broad comment.

    Lena Wagenfuehr says:

    Hypocrisy! UK has a horrible legacy and does zero to bring people together – no one remembers Brexit,?

    Black King says:

    Exclude what exactly ?

    the 70s says:

    If he feels that strongly he should go home but he won’t as he’s staying for the money.

    seek for Jannah says:

    Yh plus the irony Keano the same man that ended haland career dirty player glad fergie got rid off him

    Jose Parcenary says:

    If he feels so strongly he should walk out on ITV (like he did his country in 2002).

    Chris Bradley says:

    Interesting how Souness brought up the British and there treatment of the Irish.

    John Greene says:

    Man and ball keano… fair play call it out directly

    J money says:

    But your there though Roy collecting a pay check. If u feel so strongly about it don’t go n stop running your mouthThese donuts are professional actors. You can’t listen to or take anything they say seriously. Always pay attention to what people do oppose to what they say

    Dafer Alshehri says:

    And you shouldn’t it be here as well!!
    Human rights! look how you treated immigrants! What a double standard!

    Hoagie D says:

    But it is two standards. The way England treats migrants is much much much better than what’s happening in Qatar.

    Dafer Alshehri says:

    @Hoagie D did you came to Qatar! Did you know work lows here? who used these workers to work! It not the Qatari government, they work at companies and some of these companies are European..

    MeanMachine says:

    Then why are you here Roy 🙃?

    Lena Wagenfuehr says:

    So I can throw tantrums to make it all about ME again!

    naim shah says:

    Roy Keane the muppet

    seek for Jannah says:

    The same guy ended haland career giving us a moral listen the irony

    O V says:

    Yet u are in Qatar 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

    Jake Salter says:

    Roy Keane is a gift to the world

    Station23 says:

    So, was he too scared to say this to Russia???

    Clive Spendlove says:

    Well, isn’t that great. Such a decent remark from Roy Keane.

    Umar Shaghawat says:

    I’m a migrant worker in Qatar that has assisted with the works for the World Cup and as far as I’m aware me and all my colleagues that I know are not treated unfairly, we actually get paid a living salary and get perks too so all this what you people in the west are talking about is nonsense and it’s a way to put another country down.
