Richards’ flourishing relationship with Keane was a broadcast highlight of the past year
The couple’s on-screen relationship has given a glimpse into another side of Keane, whose on-air barbs have become legendary.
In November, Richards caught Keane doing makeup before he went on the air while Keane Richards was sewing in the studio last month ripping Gary Neville.
Their first TV clash came in March last year when Keane took the bridge with Richards’ suggestion to “come on stage” in Manchester City.
Keane called on him for his wording, claiming that defense attorneys rarely ever invaded the scene.
“Well, wait!” replied the ex-Man City player and stopped. ‘I played for England when I was 18; The youngest defender to ever play for England. I would say it bursts on the scene. ‘

A few months later, Richards found it hard to hold back when Keane looked puzzled at Aston Villa’s locker room celebrations after ensuring survival in the Premier League on the final day.
Richards wrote about his relationship with Keane in a Sportsmail column last year.
He said: ‘I love working with Roy Keane at Sky, although we don’t always agree, for example when I talked about wanting to see more players with smiles on their faces!
“My followers on Instagram enjoy my behind-the-scenes videos with Roy, but he doesn’t understand the appeal of social media and what he calls” all this nonsense “. So I don’t think he’s going to be joining anytime soon!
Richards was determined to see Roy Keane apply cosmetics before going on the air in November
“When you work with it, it sinks or floats. The first time we were on TV together, I said I was “breaking into the scene” and he replied with an ironic smile, “Did you break into the scene?” Very few defenders are on site. ‘
“I fought for my corner and since then he’s been as good as gold for me. He was a legend as a player and I know I could never compete with him on medals. What I love to do, however, is get him out of his comfort zone and see his reactions.
“It’s never boring when we’re on the air. I’ve received hundreds of messages telling me to do a travel show. And although Roy has never hidden his ambition to return to coaching, I want to spend more time with him in 2021. I don’t know if the feeling is mutual! ‘
