Tottenham icon Robbie Keane corrected a brutal dig by AP McCoy at Cheltenham on Wednesday. The former jockey joked that Keane had never been in a winners’ enclosure during his football career.
McCoy spotted the ex-striker on the podium after Brighton owner Tony Bloom’s horse Energumene won the Queen Mother Championship Chase. He took the opportunity to fire shots at Keane, leaving ITV host Ed Chamberlain and the rest of the studio panel in stitches.
Speaking on the broadcaster’s Cheltenham coverage, McCoy, an Arsenal fan, quipped: “Ex-Tottenham player, he’s never been on a winning podium before has he?”
However, Keane did not let the dig slide. The Irishman won the League Cup with Spurs in 2008 – the club’s latest major trophy.
Around five minutes later, McCoy was forced to correct his error. He told viewers that Keane had reminded him of his triumph with Spurs in an off-air exchange.
The North Londoners defeated Chelsea in the League Cup final in 2007-08. Keane played a key role as goals from Dimitar Berbatov and Jonathan Woodgate sealed a 2-1 victory.
The prolific former Ireland attacker might also have reminded McCoy that he won several other trophies during his career. During his time with LA Galaxy, Keane won the MLS Cup on three occasions.
