Brilliant footage unearthed of Roy Keane teaching 12-year-old Danny Welbeck how to shield the ball in 2003

Incredible footage has been unearthed of Roy Keane teaching a 12 year old Danny Welbeck how to shield the ball back in 2003.

Keane, then captain and midfield general of Manchester United, was giving a masterclass to a child from the club’s academy who we now recognise as the England and United regular Welbeck.

Even in this clip we can see the professionalism of Keane who rarely takes on a jocular tone with boys, stressing the importance of knowing this skill.

We can also former United coach Rene Meulensteen and former United academy prospect Larnell Cole.
