A Cheer For Roy Keane
World Soccer, September 18th, 2008 2:30PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Brian Glanville ponders the irony of FIFA Vice President Jack Warner being "outraged at being called a disgrace and a clown" by Sunderland's manager Roy Keane. "Remember," he rhetorically muses, "the gallant 2006 [Trinidad & Tobago] World Cup team who found they were being short changed by Warner and had to agitate before they got their money?"

Glanville recommends the book "Foul" by the "indefatigable" investigative journalist Paul Jennings "if you want to read a lengthy and devastating analysis and history of what Warner has been up to in the past and how he has wrung huge sums of money out of [FIFA President Sepp] Blatter ... and FIFA."

Glanville is also alarmed to have "read items in the English press which seem to take the egregious Warner at his own hyperbolic valuation." But whatever the rights and wrongs of the issue surrounding Sunderland striker Dwight Yorke's release for Trinidad & Tobago international games, "let us raise a cheer for Keane."
