Classic Moments: Roy Keane is sent off for diving against Blackburn Rovers

A fresh-faced Roy Keane – the same Keane who once called for anti-diving wristbands – is sent off by David Elleray for diving, during a league game at Ewood Park in 1995. You have to laugh…

He's admitted in his autobiography that this incident led him to resolve not to dive again- that the shame of being sent off for it made him staunchly against it- and watching the league become more and more divers-get-the-call, he became more vocal about it.

I'd love to see Keano and Big Sam go toe to toe.
