SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY manager Darren Moore left Republic of Ireland legend Roy Keane lost for words according to his old defensive partner Stephen Foster.
Speaking to The Star, Foster went into details on one of the rare occasions the Manchester United legend came up short in an argument.
The incident occurred in 2009 during Keane’s stint as Ipswich Town manager.
Following a 2-1 defeat to Barnsley, Keane was furious after Moore won a free-kick that led to the winning goal.
Foster went into details into what happened between Keane and Moore in the aftermath of the match.
He said: “Going into the tunnel, Keane barged in and muttered something under his breath as Mooro was walking past.

“Mooro gave him a chance to change his mind. He stopped dead and asked him to repeat himself.
“Roy said, ‘You go down easy for a big man, don’t you?’
“Well, Mooro’s face. He didn’t say a thing, he just turned around, squared up to him and just stood there, looking down on him.”
The Cork native who is never one to back down from a confrontation didn’t take Moore on according to Foster.
He said: “Keane just shrank in Mooro’s shadow.
“It was the first and only time I’d seen or heard of Roy looking that way, he’s obviously a tough bloke.
“There was a little bit of a scuffle, no real fighting.
“But Roy certainly regretted muttering those words to Mooro as he walked past.”
The former Man United captain is currently locked in a battle with England star Jack Grealish after he criticised him for not taking a penalty before Bukayo Saka.
He said: “If you’re Sterling or Grealish, you cannot sit there and have a young kid [Saka] go up for a penalty ahead of you, you can’t.
“You cannot let a shy 19-year-old go up in front of you.
“They have a lot more experience, Sterling has won trophies, they had to get in front of the young kid and stand up.”
Grealish took to Twitter to respond to Keane’s criticism, claiming he wanted to take a penalty.
He said: “I said I wanted to take one!!!! The gaffer has made so many right decisions through this tournament and he did tonight!
“But I won’t have people say that I didn’t want to take a peno when I said I will.”
The Aston Villa man may want to look into asking Darren Moore to talk to Keane.
