Roy Keane wasn’t happy with Manchester United and Liverpool players being too friendly with each other in the tunnel during Sunday’s crucial game.

Roberto Firmino was seen talking to his Brazillian teammates Andreas Pereira and Fred moments before the players walked out on the pitch.

Keane, who was well known for his temper during his tenure at Manchester United claimed that the players should have been ‘preparing for war’ ahead of such an important fixture, not have friendly conversations.

“I’m disgusted with players [scenes in the tunnel]. You’re going to war, they’re hugging and kissing,” Keane said on Sky Sports.

“Don’t even look at the opposition. You’re going into battle against them.

“The game hasn’t changed that much, the players have changed. You’re going to war against these players and they’re hugging each other.

“Chat to them after the game, or don’t even chat to them after the game.”

Manchester United legend is remembered for some of the biggest fights in the tunnel, the most famous one being his fight with Patrick Vieira which took in the Highbury tunnel.
