Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira's explosive rivalry defined one of the most compelling eras of the Premier League when Arsenal and Manchester United vied for the top honours.
This new documentary brings these two iconic figures face-to-face before the cameras to tell each other exactly how they saw it at the time and how they feel now, looking back.
As captain of Manchester United, Roy Keane described himself as being, ‘In a war with Vieira,’ his Arsenal counterpart.
While their two clubs competed with each other for the biggest prizes in the domestic game, their leaders fought on the pitch and argued off it, with the most infamous bust-up coming in the tunnel at Highbury in 2005.
The two men face each other across a table candidly discussing the most tense, frustrating and important moments of their careers, including the so-called 'Battle of Old Trafford' in 2003. They explain why they had a fearsome bitter rivalry, and what they really thought of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger then and now.
