In 1997 Manchester United went to Hong Kong for a summer friendly tournament. It wouldn’t have been more than a simple friendly tournament if Keane wouldn’t had revealed his big fight with his team mate Peter Schmeichel during the tour.“There’d been a little bit of tension between us over the years, for football reasons” Keane said. “Peter would come out shouting at players, and I felt sometimes he was playing up to the crowd: ‘Look at me!’ “He was probably doing it for concentration levels, but I felt he did it too often, as if he was telling the crowd: ‘Look what I have to deal with.’ “He said, ‘I’ve had enough of you. It’s time we sorted this out.’ So I said, ‘OK,’ and we had a fight. It felt like 10 minutes. There was a lot of noise – Peter’s a big lad. “I woke up the next morning. I kind of vaguely remembered the fight. My hand was really sore and one of my fingers was bent backwards.” “Butty [Nicky Butt] had refereed the fight. Anyway, Peter had grabbed me, I’d head-butted him – we’d been fighting for ages.” According to Keane, Schmeichel explained away his black eye at a subsequent press conference by claiming that one of his team-mates had accidentally elbowed him in training. But you now know the real Schmeichel black eye’s issue. And by the way Manchester United lifted the trophy.
