Roy Keane is not a shy man.

Ever since the former Manchester United captain's autobiography came out, Keane has shown that he's completely fine taking anyone to task. 

Now an assistant coach at Aston Villa, Keane has now aimed his words toward former team-mate-turned pundit, Paul Scholes. 

Keane hit out at Scholes' unwillingness to perform media duties as a player at United, per Metro

People don't realise Scholesy could have done [TV appearances] at United, but he couldn't be a****. 

People thought he was camera-shy—he just couldn't be bothered. 

None of us liked doing interviews, but it was a responsibility of the dressing room, you shared the load. 

Scholesy's too humble to do it? Well, he's f****** doing it now, isn't he? Maybe there's more money involved now. 

And I'd tell him this if he was sat here in front of me.
