Roy Keane didn’t hold back tonight when assessing David de Gea’s mistake which led to Steven Bergwijn opener.
When asked about De Gea’s howler, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defended his goalkeeper, telling Sky Sports, “the ball was moving all over the place”.
However, a number of individual errors led to Bergwijn’s goal. Harry Maguire was caught wrong footed and should have pushed the Dutch winger further wide rather than allowing him to cut in and have a shot at goal.
But Keane was adamant in his half-time analysis that De Gea was to blame more than any other player.
Reacting to Solskjaer’s post match comments on the Spaniard, Keane gave a smart reply, saying: “If you kick the ball it is going to move.”

Typical Keane – but he does say there was no need for the boss to throw anyone under the bus tonight.
I can’t help but wonder how he would have reacted if it was him as manager in front of the camera…
Solskjaer was asked more specifically about Keane’s comments after the match, as quoted by BBC reporter Simon Stone on Twitter: “Roy was a fantastic midfielder, a good friend of mine. I am not sure he would have stopped it.”
