Piers Morgan, 56, has praised Irish football manager and former professional Roy Keane for his commentary. This comes as the pundit appears as part of the presenting team for tonight’s England against Czech Republic game.
Piers hailed him as being a “woke” snowflake’s nightmare in an impassioned tweet during the game.
The outspoken broadcaster penned his praise in view of his 7.9 million followers.
He wrote: “I agree with everything Roy Keane ever says as a pundit.
“Love his brutal honesty, ferociously uncompromising intensity, utter intolerance of mediocrity & volcanic desire to win.
“He’s a woke virtue-signalling snowflake’s nightmare.”
His followers were quick to weigh in with their opinions as Piers caused debate as usual.
One wrote: “Totally agree, breath of fresh air.”
“He’s comedy gold and he ain’t even trying to be funny! Love him,” penned a second.
Another added: “He’d be a great Life Stories guest!”
Others called him out for speaking about “woke” people once again.
One penned in response to the presenter: “Obsessed with woke.”
A second added: “Brutal honesty is needed and Roy Keane has just that, but don’t use it to have a dig at ‘woke’ people when you don’t know the definition!”
“Does he need a paragraph though?” wrote a third.
“Just call him a top bloke and move on, he’d just tell you to shut up anyways when you ramble on.”
This comes after the former Good Morning Britain presenter tweeted about one of his comments earlier tonight.
He retweeted the moment Roy spoke about the England players isolating after having 20 minute conversations with Scottish player Billy Gilmour.
This means they’ve been forced to isolate after he tested positive for Covid-19.
Roy said: “Why would you want to speak to an opposition player for 20 minutes?
“It makes no sense. I very rarely talk to anyone for more than five minutes.”
Then Mark Pougatch asked him: “I hope your wife gets to speak to you for more than five minutes Roy?”
In a joking quip back, Roy then replied: “Never.”
Piers called the moment “brilliant” with several laughing emojis.
