Roy Keane watches New York Jets beat Buffalo Bills and Manchester United legend does something he normally hates

Roy Keane has used the international break to do some travelling as he popped up in New York to watch a blockbuster NFL game.

The Manchester United legend is an NFL fan and watched a game at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season – and got angry when a fan asked for a selfie.

Keane was a guest at the Metlife Stadium to watch Aaron Rodgers’ first game as New York Jets quarterback against the Buffalo Bills.

The 52-year-old was all smiles as he did something he is usually completely against… and that is swapping shirts.

Keane traded a Manchester United shirt with Jets legend Nick Mangold, who spent a decade with the team.

The pair signed each other’s jerseys and posed for pictures.

It is of course something that Keane hated doing during his playing days.

“I’ve asked one player to swap a jersey, which I regret,” Keane said to Gary Neville on The Overlap podcast.

“We played Germany with Ireland, pre World Cup 94 in a friendly. It was after the game, and we beat them to be fair.

“He was walking off and I was only being polite. It was the sweeper, [Matthias] Sammer, and he said no. I went ‘ya fucking p****’ anyway.

“That was it. I just thought ‘I shouldn’t be asking anybody’. I was only being polite, it’s not that I wanted his jersey.”

It seems Keane made an exception on this occasion and it was a great match for the United legend to see in New York.

Despite Rodgers injuring his Achilles at the start of the match, the Jets won in overtime against the Bills, who are Super Bowl contenders.
