Keane recalls his worst game came against Real Madrid after trying yoga the days before
When asked to name his worst performance during his illustrious career, Keane highlighted one game against Real Madrid where he decided to tweak his pre-match routine.
He said: ‘We played Real Madrid at home one time and I was shocking.
‘But I’d just tried yoga at home a couple of days before and I couldn’t get going.
‘I never got a kick. I was taken off and I remember thinking “I’m finished at real top-level football”.’
Keane was then asked who was the best goalkeeper he played with before delivering a withering assessment of ex-team-mate Schmeichel.
Keane insisted he was better than Patrick Vieira, who he used to clash with in Arsenal games

He added: ‘I suppose I’d have to say Peter but I still think he was overrated.
‘I just don’t think he was as good as everyone made out but he was very good.’
Keane was known throughout his playing career for his bitter rivalry with former Arsenal midfielder Patrick Vieira.
They enjoyed one of the Premier League’s greatest rivalries during Manchester United and Arsenal’s enthralling battles for top spot in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The Irishman and his French counterpart famously clashed in the tunnel at Highbury Stadium and engaged in a fracas on the pitch as the pair attempted to guide their sides to the big trophies.
Keane admitted the moment he still thinks about was snapping his cruciate ligament in a challenge with Alf-Inge Haaland
But when Neville asked who was better out of Keane and the Crystal Palace manager, Keane did not hesitate in his response.
‘I thought I was better than Patrick, yeah. Is that what you’re saying, who’s better? Yeah, me.’
Neville briefly stopped and looked up at the Irishman after he had given his answer, to which the ex-Ireland midfielder said: ‘What are you pausing for?’
Another of Keane’s fierce rivalries was brought up when he was asked to name the moment in football he still thinks about.

The Irishman also insisted he thought Peter Schmeichel (right) was an overrated goalkeeper
Keane said it was the first incident with ex-Leeds star Alf-Inge Haaland where he snapped his anterior cruciate ligament.
As Keane lay in pain on the ground, Haaland furiously raced over to him and accused him of feigning injury.
But then in April 2001, Keane sought revenge in a Manchester derby and produced a shocking tackle on Haaland.
Speaking about the first incident, Keane told Neville: ‘In football I suppose maybe when I did my cruciate. The Haaland stuff when I got injured.
‘It was a bit stupid but I don’t think I deserved doing my cruciate for it.’
