Roy Keane has continued to slam Brazil manager Tite for dancing with his players during their 4-1 win over South Korea, telling him to go and ‘dance in a nightclub’.
Brazil stunned South Korea in their last-16 clash, hitting four first half goals past them thanks to goals from Vinicius Jnr, Neymar, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta.
Following Vinicius’ opener Brazil showed off a series of pre-planned dance routines to mark their goals, with even the manager getting involved after the third strike.
There have been more words from Roy Keane over Brazil’s dancing celebrations
The pundit told manager Tite to ‘dance in a nightclub’ after he joined in with the celebrations
Keane was less than impressed with the incident, as he told Sky Bet: ‘I love watching Brazil and what they stand for.
‘When you think of the World Cup you think of Brazil, I love watching them because they are brilliant at football, but not when they are dancing, or the manager starts dancing, it’s not respectful’
‘I don’t get how a manager can dance when the game is still going ahead, he’s got an opposition manager ten yards away from him, you’ve got to watch that. The game is about respect. Dance afterwards in the dressing room, or in the nightclub, that’s not a problem.
Keane previously called the dancing ‘disrespectful’ and compared it to ‘Strictly Come Dancing’
‘But why is it okay for Brazil to do it during the game? If everyone has a dance after a goal, the games will be going on for three days.
‘Do you know what they should start doing, when coaches do their pro licence, show the managers how to do a little dance on the sideline, forget tactics.’
It was the latest escalation in a feud between Keane and Tite that started on the night of the game.
Tite has defended the dancing as part of Brazilian culture and insisted it is not disrespectful
The pundit called the dancing ‘disrespectful’ and compared it to ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ during ITV’s coverage of the South Korea game, to which Brazil forward Vinicius Junior jokingly replied: ‘Keeeep dancing!’
Tite then hit back at Keane’s comments, saying those who criticised the celebrations did not understand Brazilian culture, and that the dancing was ‘not disrespectful’ towards opponents.
Brazil are next in action against Croatia, a side that has been historically sensitive on issues of respect, in their quarter final on Friday.
