Man City complain to Sky Sports over Roy Keane’s punditry in Liverpool draw

Manchester City have reportedly lodged a complaint to Sky Sports, with the belief pundit Roy Keane “stepped over the line”.

The Manchester United legend launched a scathing attack on Kyle Walker, after the City defender conceded a penalty against Liverpool.

During the 1-1 draw, the England international was at fault for Liverpool’s opener after he fouled Sadio Mane in the area.

Asked how Mane was able to win the penalty, Keane told Sky Sports: "Because he's up against an idiot.

Keane added: "Kyle Walker, people keep telling me he's playing. I don't think so.

"I think this guy, he's 30 years of age, international player, he's a car crash.

"Keeps making these types of mistakes and rightly punished for it."

The Daily Mail report that City feel Keane went too far in calling Walker an “idiot” and have made contact with the broadcaster.

Sky declined to comment, but do suggest their pundits are free to express their opinions.

Keane has developed a reputation as one of the most blunt pundits covering the sport and has become known for his no-nonsense approach to analysis.

Fellow pundit Jamie Carragher has recently defended the former United skipper, claiming he “is one of the best” in his discipline.

"I think he's a delight on Sky, one of the best pundits out there," Carragher toldtalkSPORT . "He's the master with one line. Kills someone, finishes someone off.

"That's Roy Keane's style and he's the best at it. When you work with people like that it keeps you on your toes.

"You have a team and everyone brings something different."
