‘Dance afterwards’ – Manchester United great Roy Keane doubles down on Brazil criticism

Manchester United great Roy Keane has doubled down on his criticism of Brazil for their dancing celebrations during their 4-1 win over South Korea, as he called out head coach Tite for showing a lack of “respect”.

Brazil scored four goals inside the first-half during their round of 16 victory over South Korea, with goals from Vinicius Junior, Neymar, Richarlison and Paqueta seeing them progress to the quarter-finals where they will take on Croatia.

Every time the ball hit the back of the net, the South American squad celebrated with a choreographed dance routine, with their coach Tite even joining in after the third goal.

Keane was far from pleased with what he was watching, as he lambasted the Selecao squad for what he saw as disrespectful behaviour.

“I don’t like this,” he said on ITV Sport. “People say it’s their culture. But I think that’s really disrespecting the opposition. It’s four goals, and they are doing it every time. I don’t mind so much the first jig, it’s the one after that, and the manager getting involved. I’m not happy about it. I don’t think it’s good at all.

Keane’s comments were met with a wave of dissent from those in the Brazil squad, with Tite, Paqueta and others hitting back at the former United man for not understanding their culture.

But rather than ease off with his criticism, Keane has now doubled down on his stance, as he reiterated his belief that the dancing celebrations during the match showed a lack of respect for South Korea.

He told Sky Bet: “I love watching Brazil and what they stand for. When you think of the World Cup you think of Brazil, I love watching them because they are brilliant at football, but not when they are dancing, or the manager starts dancing, it’s not okay.

“It’s not respectful. Respect your teammates and your opposition. A manager doing a dance on the sideline, you think that’s okay? I don’t get how a manager can dance when the game is still going ahead, he’s got an opposition manager ten yards away from him, you’ve got to watch that.
