Keane was at Old Trafford for Sky Sports expert work and was furious at the United team.
‘I give up on these players. These are international footballers! I don’t understand the defense, I give up … Really so poor, class difference, quality, decision making, everything. It was men against children. United are so out of place it’s incredible. It should be a difficult place to come, it is not. Teams come here and rejoice.
“I know they’ve been falling apart, but in the end it’s what you do at home that builds the foundation and earns you trophies. Half-time goal: United just need to go 1-0 at half-time. The second goal is over. I don’t know what to say, it’s so poor.
“McTominay, Fred, these players are not good enough for Manchester United.” I wasn’t surprised Bailly cut it, he has that in him, he’s erratic. I looked at Foden after the game, you should be exhausted after a derby. It should be exhausted, it should have no energy. He was talking like he had a practice game. ‘
Keane admitted in an interview with Gary Neville on his Overlap YouTube channel that he doesn’t like being in the public eye and doesn’t like fans coming up to him and asking for autographs or photos of him.
Keane admitted in an interview earlier this year that he doesn’t like being in the public eye.
“Being in the public eye, I hate it,” he said earlier this year. ‘I hate it. People can be polite or hit a phone (above) and follow you with a camera and then think you are rude. Am I the rude one and are you going to go up?
‘I ran into a United fan the other day and he showed me his tattoo and said “Okay bye” and then kept walking. That is a true fan. People invading you with your phone or (signing) your shirts, they are just annoying.
“I think it’s because people are busy and they see you as someone in the public eye and it’s like ‘can I have a part of you? “or” can you sign that? “Even City fans come and want a photo. Do you want a photo of me? Why?
For me it is a matter of activity. It is not a question of respect. People who respect you leave you alone. ‘
