Man Utd legend Roy Keane remembers ‘very bad’ first date with wife Theresa, he is something else

Roy Keane had viewers in stitches on Saturday night when he opened up about his “really bad” first date with now-wife Theresa which ended after just 15 minutes.

Former Manchester United captain Keane, who has never held back when it comes to telling stories, was a guest on the latest season of RTE’s Tommy Tiernan Show.

In fact, the Irishman soon elaborated on the latter by going into detail about their first date – a night that ended in disaster.

So how did it go? Keane, who had met his current wife at a club in Nottingham, later went on a date with Theresa. But it didn’t quite go according to plan.

In fact, she refused to go to the movies or have a drink with him after the incident.

“It went really badly,” admitted Keane, who initially said the first few days of his current relationship were just “okay”.

“We met, I picked her up, and I had met her [before] when I had a couple of drinks so the chat was a bit different.

“We walked around and I said, ‘Would you like to go to the pictures?’ Because at least in the pictures you can just watch the movie, you don’t have to chat too much.

“And she said ‘No, I went last night with my friends’. So I said, ‘Do you want to have a drink?’ She said ‘No’.

“I literally drove back to the car, all of this within 10 or 15 minutes. She said, ‘What are you doing?’

“I said, ‘Well, you don’t want to have a drink, you don’t want to go to the pictures, what else can we do?’

“She got out [of the car] and I said, “Maybe I’ll see you next week,” and she said, “I don’t think so,” and slammed the door. It was my first date.”

He ended the story saying, “And we’re still married.”

Keane has never been one to hold back and during this winter’s World Cup in Qatar, the former Manchester United midfielder decided to fly home and take a break because his fellow pundits were “getting on his nerves”.

Speaking to Micah Richards and Gary Neville for Sky Bet, Keane said overall the tournament was “okay” before Neville revealed: “To be fair, Roy went home for four or five days as well. He went back.”

Keane then spilled the beans. “I had a break. I needed a break, just my tolerance levels. Yes, people get on my nerves.”

Richards, clearly amused by the comments, asked Keane to name who got on his nerves. The former Ireland international said: “How long have we got? Be aware.”

Neville commented: “I can tell when the tank is filling up. It’s like one of the challenges on I’m A Celebrity with Roy, you know when you can see the tank rising until you have to get out of there.”

It took just three days for ITV pundits Keane and Souness to record their first argument of the tournament.

Indeed, at one point Souness bluntly told Keane that he had repeated his opinion “ten times” and urged the Irishman to “let someone else do the talking” because “you might learn something”.
