Roy Keane criticized Erling Haaland’s play, to which the actor laughed and remarked that ‘that man’s’ opinions were not very important to him.

With a horrific challenge that he later admitted was premeditated to cause harm, former United great Keane effectively ended the career of Alfie Haaland, Erling’s father, when he was City captain in 2003, creating a tense relationship between the two teams. Even though Keane is one of the more upbeat media representatives for City, he recently made headlines when he likened Haaland’s build-up play to that of a League Two player.

In a season where he has missed two months due to injury, Haaland has scored four goals against Wolves to quickly climb to 25 goals in the Premier League and 36 goals overall. The goals all but guaranteed the Norwegian consecutive top flight Golden Boots and kept City on track for back-to-back doubles.

Haaland was upset about his lack of official protection during the match and needed to be calmed down by Pep Guardiola. However, by the time he went to the dressing room, he had already recovered. As he dismissed the opinion in his post-match interviews, Haaland did not even seem to be bothered by Keane’s criticism.

He said to Norwegian broadcaster Viaplay, “I don’t really care that much about that man, so that’s all right.”
