Roy Keane says he did not recognise a Manchester United team

Roy Keane is one of Manchester United’s greatest ever captains and whenever he was on the pitch, you knew what you were going to get.

This current Manchester United team are not worthy of the great man.

Keane gave a brutal assessment of the club after watching the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane said: “This is not the club I played for, that wasn’t a Manchester United team out there.”

Anger replaced by sadness

There was no mad rant from Keane on Sky. The anger has been replaced by sadness. And that is even worse.

United are so bad that Keane cannot longer muster the anger Sky pay his handsomely for, they have broken him.

The statistics back up Keane’s assessement. United were absolutely and utterly terrible, managing just one shot on target the whole game.

This came from substitute Jadon Sancho, and the worst aspect of the four goals conceded was that they were all preventable.

Harry Maguire was typically poor, giving the ball away in a shocking manner for the fourth with a wild pass to young talent Hannibal.

Hannibal was praised after the game by pundit Gary Neville, who said he liked the fiery cameo from the teenager, who put in a couple of late tackles. He remarked he wished the rest of the team showed the same passion.

United were limp, unable to stop Liverpool’s title push, or help out their own fight for the top four places.

The team have now lost against Liverpool by a combined score of 9-0 this season. This can’t continue, it was just painful to watch.
