Roy Keane destroyed Declan Rice’s performance and his potential to succeed at his old club Manchester United.

After England put on a performance against Kosovo that was anything but convincing, former United legend Roy Keane gave a scathing review of the team.

He had some destroying word for possible United target midfielder Declan Rice.

Speaking to ITV Sport, Keane had nothing positive to say about the West Ham United man.

He said:

“Where he needs to improve, there are plenty of aspects if you think about it.”

“Over the last few months he has had a lot of praise, I worked with him while he was with the Ireland squad.”

“Where does he need to improve, where do you want me to start?”

“His positional play I don’t think is consistent enough, he doesn’t stay with runners, he’s sloppy in possession.”

“I can go on.”

“He’s one of those players, a couple of months ago everyone was enjoying him and loved him.”

“He’s one of those players that’s now played his way out of the team because he’s not been consistent for West Ham.”

It wasn’t too long ago, that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he respected Roy Keane’s opinion.

If Rice is dreaming of a move to Manchester, he better hope Solskajer didn’t hear this interview.
