Manchester United legend Roy Keane has reacted furiously to the performances of Harry Maguire and David de Gea after the two made big errors before Steven Bergwijn scored the opening goal for Tottenham Hotspur against Manchester United on Friday evening. The Dutch forward dribbled passed Maguire with fair ease, while his low shot couldn’t be saved by De Gea.
“I’m shocked at that goal,” the former United captain said on Sky Sports. “I’ve watched a lot of football over the years, but to give that away, I’m fuming. I can’t believe [Luke] Shaw heads the ball up and then runs forward, I’m staggered at Maguire, staggered that an international player can get done like this, and I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper.”
“This is an established international goalkeeper. I’m flabbergasted. There’s got to be something going on at half-time. If I was Ole, make some changes, get some lads off the pitch, some of them are going through the motions at the moment. Spurs have been okay, they’ve been compact. But Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn’t let them on the bus after the match, let them get a taxi back to Manchester.”
“We’re trying to get in the top four, not win leagues – just the top four! God forbid about winning trophies. It’s shocking. I am disgusted with it. Maguire, De Gea, you should hang your heads in shame. Representing Manchester United, letting people run past you. Get close to them! De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time. Tottenham had some bits of quality, but I’d have saved that [Heung-Min] Son shot. That’s not a great save, it’s middle of the goal, it’s his job.”
