“They won’t get Man United back” – Roy Keane names two Man United players ‘not good enough”

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has told the Red Devils that midfield duo Scott McTominay and Fred are ‘not good enough’ to get them ‘back competing at the top’.

The hard-hitting Irishman, who is best known for his outspoken nature, wasted no time in laying into the United squad following a shock 2-1 Premier League opening day defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Red Devils, led by new manager Erik ten Hag, named a starting 11 that included two new signings – Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.

However, unfortunately, given a lack of options, ten Hag has been forced to start the season with the familiar defensive duo of Scott McTominay and Fred, and following poor performances from both this weekend, Keane has highlighted the pair as his old side’s weakest links.

Speaking live on Sky Sports just after Sunday’s match at Old Trafford finished, the former skipper said: “The decision making and footballing intelligence, particularly from midfield from Fred and McTominay. Not good enough.

“They won’t get Man United back competing at the top.”

The Red Devils’ next match is set to be in the Premier League against Brentford next Saturday.
