Manchester United legend Roy Keane was highly unimpressed with a couple of players and insists he would have been fighting mad at half-time.

Manchester United may have dominated possession against Tottenham in their first game back. They may have shown signs of controlling the game and having their opponent running scared on the back foot for the most part.

However, despite all the positives, Roy Keane could not turn a blind eye to the glaring negatives.

Harry Maguire’s inability to deal with  Steven Bergwijn’s running at him and David De Gea’s efforts to handle the Dutchman’s shot.

Speaking to Sky Sports the retired legend gave a scathing assessment of the pair and insists it may have been a blood bath at half time if he was in the dressing room.

He said:

 “I’m shocked at that goal.”

“I’ve watched a lot of football over the years, but to give away that goal, I’m fuming here watching this game of football.”

“I am sick to death of this goalkeeper. I would be fighting him at half time.”

“There’s no getting away from it, I would be swinging punches.”

“It’s a standard save for an established international goalkeeper. I am flabbergasted.”

“I’m staggered at Maguire, that an international player, you can’t get done like this.”

“If I were Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, I would make some stages, get some lads off the pitch.”

“Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn’t even let them on the bus after the match. Let them get a taxi back up to Manchester.”

“I’m disgusted. Maguire, De Dea, hang your heads in shame.”

Could performances like this lead Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to wield the ax this summer to some of his current stars.
