Police called after Roy Keane 'incident' with taxi driver

Police in the UK are investigating an alleged incident involving Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane.

The 43-year-old former Manchester United captain is said to have got into an alleged altercation with a taxi driver in Altrincham town centre, which led to police being called.

The Manchester Evening News has reported that the taxi driver claims that the incident occurred after he told Keane to “smile”.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “At 11.30am, police were called to Ashley Road, Altrincham, to a report that a man had behaved aggressively towards another man.

“An investigation is under way to establish the exact circumstances surrounding the incident.”

Keane has previously managed Sunderland and Ipswich lives in nearby Hale.
