LISTEN: Stephen Ward's account of Keane & Arter's bust-up

Roy Keane in the news again

Roy Keane has to be the angriest man in the world of football. The former Manchester United skipper was a fantastic player back but his attitude and temper both on and off the pitch always landed him in trouble with the authorities, and it appears that the same could happen again now with the national team. Currently assistant to Martin O'Neil with the Republic of Ireland, rumours surfaced a couple of days ago of a big rift between him and him and midfielder Harry Arter.

The Cardiff City man is English born and only pledged his allegiance to the Irish national team three years ago, with him picking up 13 caps since. Keane has been involved with him since and it appears that he really isn't a fan of the 28 year-old, reportedly launching a foul mouthed rant at him after he was forced to sit out of training due to an injury. Arter and team mate Jon Walters were reportedly told to sit out by the FAI which makes Keane's attitude towards them even more shocking.

The Irish no.2 labelled Arter a 'c***' and claimed that he's been a 'p**** his whole life' in a huge rant according to defender Stephen Ward. The Burnley full back sent a voice message via WhatsApp on Monday which has since been leaked and reveals the shocking extent of what happened between the two - which in reality sounds like a stunning attack from Keane. But what makes this story even more interesting is that head coach Martin O'Neill played down the incident, claiming that Keane had been 'brilliant'.. Listen to clip below and make your mind up for yourself.
