Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane was sad at the team’s performance against Liverpool while Gary Neville said the club is at the lowest point ever. A Mohamed Salah double and goals from Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane ensured a 4-0 drubbing on the night and a 9-0 aggregate score for the season. Keane who won a Champions League and seven Premier League titles revealed he was disappointed with the demise of the club.
“It’s not anger, it was anger earlier in the season. It’s sadness,” former Manchester United captain Roy Keane said. “You look at the team today, there wasn’t any heart, no soul, no leaders, they lack real quality. They are so far off and you look at the United fans tonight… there’s no surprise with the scoreline, but Liverpool could score any time they went forward. There is disarray at the club from the top. The fans have no time for the owners. They need a new manager, they need players in, they need players out. It’s so sad to see. It’s not the club I played for. It doesn’t reflect what Man Utd stood for when I played for it. It’s chalk and cheese. I don’t see a Manchester United team out there fighting and playing with pride.”
“What Man Utd have always had in my experience of the club is brilliant characters, brilliant men, people you want to work with, people you want to be in the trenches with,” he added. “Robson, Bruce, Pallister, Beckham, Giggsy, Butty all these lads. Brilliant lads. We didn’t win every week but you’d look around before a game and think, ‘we’re going to give everything we have for this club’. That’s what we’d expect and hopefully, our talent would get us over the line and we’d win the odd game.”
