Roy Keane. Just say the name and many things come to mind. His no-nonsense, tough as nails attitude. His crunching tackles. Spectacular balls in behind. Carrying the ball up the pitch and smashing it home. The man could do everything. His greatest contribution, however, wasn't tackles, passes, or goals. It was his leadership.
Called by many as the best captain ever, his leadership drove Manchester United to unrivaled dominance. During his time at United, he won 17 major titles, including the first ever treble won by any English side. He was the driving force behind all of those teams. One of the few constants in a side that had to consistently adapt and adjust in order to remain at the top of the game. He not only pushed himself constantly but those around him to be the best they could be. The Class of '92 might never have reached such glory without Roy Keane driving them forwards. Constantly making them improve and keeping them in line when games looked like they were already lost. He embodied that never quit spirit that defined Manchester United during Sir Alex's tenure. Manchester United didn't give up until the whistle blew and it led to countless spectacular last-minute goals. Roy Keane was the one who never let his teammates quit.
Keane was an unrelenting force. Nothing could get in his way. Own a piece of that relentless legacy with this signed Manchester United shirt. Recall the unmatched desire to win and the driving force that embodied Roy Keane.
