Brazil's dancing superstars have been labelled as 'disrespectful' by a furious Roy Keane


‘It’s like STRICTLY. I’m not happy with it’: Roy Keane slams ‘DISRESPECTFUL’ Brazil for dancing celebrations as they blitzed South Korea… with even 61-year-old manager Tite getting involved

Roy Keane savaged Brazil’s free-scoring stars as ‘disrespectful’ as he likened their choreographed dance celebrations to watching Strictly Come Dancing.

Brazil put on a show in the first half of their last-16 showdown with South Korea, hitting them for four 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, something that left Keane aghast come the half-time break.

‘Fantastic finish by Vinicius, great start to the game. But I’ve never seen so much dancing,’ fumed ITV pundit Keane

‘I can’t believe what I’m watching, I can’t believe what I’m watching, it’s like watching Strictly [Come Dancing].’

Brazil continued to offer up a variety of moves as the goals flew in, with even manager Tite getting involved as he mimicked Richarlison’s pigeon celebration following the third goal.  

‘I don’t like this. People say it’s their culture. But I think that’s really disrespecting the opposition,’ Keane furiously continued. 

Keane said one time would have been manageable but after every goal is 'disrespectful'

‘It’s four goals, and they are doing it every time.

‘I don’t mind so much the first jig, it’s the one after that, and the manager getting involved. 

‘I’m not happy about it. I don’t think it’s good at all.’

Graeme Souness backed Keane’s verdict and was equally as seething at the constant dancing after goals.

‘It’s only a matter of time before someone goes right through one of these Brazilians,’ the Scot said.

Richarlison’s trademark ‘pigeon’ was one that seemed to cause particular annoyance given he raced over to the sideline and got his manager involved.  

The Tottenham striker’s moves originated from a pop group in Brazil called Os Perseguidores. 

It was when Richarlison moved to Everton from Watford in 2018 that he explained the reasons behind the dance.  

‘The pigeon dance came from a group from Rio de Janeiro who had a song in around 2012,’ he explained at the time.

‘A trend was started when I did the dance at home. Everyone started copying me.’

As annoyed as Keane and Souness were, Eni Aluko, alongside the grumpy pair on ITV’s punditry panel for the match, totally disagreed and said she ‘loved’ the enthusiasm in the Brazil celebrations. 

‘I love it, it’s like we are at a Brazilian party,’ Aluko responded. 

‘South Korea have made it easy for them. Look at this penalty, it’s personality, you can say they aren’t respecting South Korea but Neymar would have done that to most teams.’
