Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has described Serge Aurier’s challenge on Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana as ‘madness’.
With the first half looking set to end goalless, the Ivorian decided to crash into the back of the Foxes player inside the Tottenham penalty area.
Jamie Vardy broke the deadlock with the last kick of the first half, leaving Keane having to choose his words carefully to describe the incident.
Keane, who was appearing as a pundit for Sky Sports claimed that Aurier does not think about his actions while suggesting it is not the first time the right-back has been guilty of a rash decision.

Keane told Sky Sports: “There is a word to describe it: madness! I need to be careful what I say about this defender. We’ve been on this road before with him. Utter madness. There is no danger, Fofana is not in on goal, Aurier is an experienced player… madness. He wasn’t thinking, this lad doesn’t think.”
