Roy Keane is furious at Brazil's 'disrespectful' celebrations against South Korea

Roy Keane: Brazil’s World Cup dance celebrations have enraged former Manchester United great Roy Keane, who called them ‘disrespectful.’

The five-time champions crushed South Korea 4-1 in the last 16 on Monday and celebrated each of their goals with a collective dance.

When Richarlison scored the third goal, he rushed to the bench and got coach Tite involved, which irritated Keane.

Keane yelled on ITV, “I can’t believe what I’m watching. It’s like watching Strictly [Come Dancing],” and he continued.

This bothers me. It’s said to be their culture. But I believe that disrespects the adversary.

“It’s four goals, and they hit them every time.” I don’t mind the first jig so much as the one after, with the manager getting involved. It makes me unhappy. I don’t believe it’s any good.”

Keane is mistaken on one issue. It’s not a Strictly Come Dancing routine but a dance created by the Brazilian musical group Os Perseguidores.

Richarlison has been doing this for a few years and detailed it in 2018.

“The pigeon dance originates from a Rio de Janeiro group who released a song around 2012,” he stated.

“When I danced the dance at home, it established a trend.” “Everyone began to imitate me.”
