Manchester United legend, Roy Keane has lashed out at captain, Harry Maguire over the defender’s recent comments following reports of dressing room ‘crisis’ at Old Trafford.
Maguire had recently said that Man United have failed to live up to the expectations the fans had during pre-season.
But Keane branded Maguire’s comments as ‘rubbish’, adding that the England international should start performing on the pitch rather than make public assurances.
The Irishman said that he judges a player on his ability on the pitch rather than what he says off it.
Speaking to ITV, Keane said: “How many times has he said that? I wouldn’t listen too much to what Harry has to say.
“I judge a player on what he does on a football pitch, not what rubbish he comes out with about ‘we need to stick together’. Judge a player on what happens on a football pitch.”
“United aren’t doing enough, but Aston Villa at home, you’d expect them to turn up and put in a good performance. It’s not been good enough recently.”
