Watch: Roy Keane ‘schools’ 12-year-old Danny Welbeck

Early Doors

Footage has emerged of Roy Keane schooling some of United’s youth team in 2003.

Pretty standard stuff for the club captain to help out but what makes this video rather newsworthy is that one of said youth team is none other than current England international Danny Welbeck.

As can be seen from the above video Keane takes his role very seriously, advising the kids “to be determined – we all know you have talent but that is just a small part of it [making the grade at United]”.

After the training session, Keane and fellow Manchester United hero Paul Scholes join in in a little old fashioned kick-about.

However, Keane is known for being quite the joker too, and the video finishes with Keane ‘school-boying’ Welbeck when he goes for a handshake after scoring a fine goal.

Another well known face makes an appearance, former United coach Rene Meulensteen.
