Manchester United star Harry Maguire has had a tough season as the Red Devils have struggled in the Premier League while Roy Keane has been less than impressed with the Englishman
Roy Keane did not mince his words after tearing into Harry Maguire for his latest comments as Manchester United captain.
The England international has been criticised throughout the season for his poor form, on occasion costing the Red Devils vital points.
Earlier in the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer oversaw some of the most embarrassing results in the club’s history including a 5-0 demolition from Liverpool and a 4-1 thrashing against Watford.
In the latter, Maguire was even sent off for two yellow cards just five minutes apart from each other to draw ire from fans around the world.
One of his biggest critics has been Keane, who even mocked the centre-back live on Sky Sports after a particularly bad showing against Liverpool.
As well as his performances on the pitch, Maguire has equally been berated for his comments after – with many believing that he is simply regurgitating the same rhetoric after a poor display.
The latest from the United captain revealed that he was sick of saying the same thing over and over again amid talk that the dressing room is fractured under Ralf Rangnick’s stewardship.
“We are letting the fans down and have to come out fighting,” he said.
“This team finished second last year. We’ve a bigger and better squad this year so we have to show the right attitude.
“We have big players in the team, leaders. I am sick of repeating myself, but it can’t continue like this. We need to go on a proper run, starting Monday.
“I’ve obviously seen a lot of criticism and a lot of it is absolutely correct. From what the fans and ex-players have said, we get it.
“A lot of it is justified and we all have to take massive responsibility, myself as captain as much as anyone, if not more. We need to start winning and playing well as a team.”
But Keane was having none of it and tore into Maguire once again, telling viewers to not listen to the 28-year-old until his performances improve on the pitch.
Speaking to ITV, he 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.”
