Wade Barrett has threatened to "batter" Roy Keane

Roy Keane made plenty of enemies on the football pitch and it now looks like he is making them off it too.

Following last night's dismal draw against PSV, Keane went on the warpath against Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Last week, Rooney was at a WWE match and was involved in an 'incident' where he ended up 'slapping' wrestler Wade Barrett with the latter hitting the deck in dramatic fashion.

Keane was far from impressed.

“I always question what players to off the field and I saw Wayne slapping a wrestler last week. Why is he getting involved in all that nonsense? I’d have a look at that," said the Corkman following last night's Old Trafford draw.

But, despite being embarrassed by Rooney, Barrett has called out Keane, saying: "If Roy Keane's looking for a piece, I'll batter him too."

Let's get ready to rumble.
