Some Totally Random Moz Fan

Manchester United captain Roy Keane was suspended for five games and fined a record $234,000 yesterday after he was found to have deliberately tried to injure a player in a Premier League game.

The Football Association determined the Irish midfielder was guilty of bringing the game into disrepute for saying in his autobiography that he deliberately set out to injure Manchester City's Alfie Inge Haaland.

The three-member FA disciplinary committee decided that the tackle had been "improperly motivated." Keane has 14 days to appeal.

Keane, 31, contended his comments were embellished by his ghostwriter, Irish journalist Eamon Dunphy.

The charges stemmed from Keane's two-footed, knee-high challenge on Haaland on April 21, 2001. Haaland hasn't started a match since.
