Keane ‘sick to death’ over Man Utd duo

Fiji Sun - - SUNFUN -

For­mer Manch­ester United cap­tain Roy Keane said he’s ‘sick to death’ of David de Gea - and that the goal­keeper and cap­tain Harry Maguire should be made to get a taxi back from Tot­ten­ham.

Keane, who won seven Premier

League ti­tles with United, ranted at half-time af­ter Steven

Berg­wijn ran past Maguire and fired through De

Gea to score.

“I wouldn’t even let them on the bus af­ter the match,” he told Sky Sports.

“Get a taxi back to Manch­ester. They should hang their heads in shame.”

Berg­wijn eas­ily beat Eng­land in­ter­na­tional Maguire for pace, and De Gea could not hold his pow­er­ful shot as Jose Mour­inho’s side took a half-time lead over his for­mer club in yes­ter­day’s Premier League match, which ended 1-1.

Maguire, who United signed from Le­ices­ter for £80m last Au­gust, has not of­fi­cially made an er­ror lead­ing to a goal this sea­son.

“I’m shocked. I’m shocked at that goal,” Keane said at the in­ter­val.

“I’ve watched a lot of foot­ball over the years and to give away that goal... I’m fum­ing.

“I can’t be­lieve that’s Manch­ester United. Luke Shaw, head­ing the ball up in the air and then run­ning for­ward... I am stag­gered at Maguire, how an in­ter­na­tional player can just get done like that - and I am sick to death of this goal­keeper. “I would be fin­ing him [De Gea] at half-time, there is no get­ting away from that. I would be swing­ing punches at that guy. That is a stan­dard save for an es­tab­lished in­ter­na­tional goal­keeper.

“I am flab­ber­gasted. Maguire and De Gea... I wouldn’t even let them on the bus af­ter the match. Get a taxi back to Manch­ester. Do your job. We’re try­ing to get into the top four - never mind win tro­phies - shock­ing. I am dis­gusted. They should hang their heads in shame.”

When asked about Keane’s com­ments, Manch­ester United man­ager Ole Gun­nar Sol­sk­jaer replied: “Roy was a fan­tas­tic mid­fielder, a good friend of mine. I am not sure he would have stopped it.”

Bruno Fer­nan­des’ sec­ond-half penalty earned United a point and re­duced Keane’s rage to a sim­mer.
