Keane ‘no re­grets’ at miss­ing out on Van Gaal call-up

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

ON-LOAN Burn­ley de­fender Michael Keane in­sists he has no re­grets at miss­ing out on the chance to make his mark at Manch­ester United.

Keane, 21, joined the Clarets from United at the end of Au­gust in a tem­po­rary deal run­ning un­til Jan­uary.

But if he had stayed at Old Traf­ford he may have got in Louis van Gaal’s team, with an in­jury cri­sis bring­ing start­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for Tyler Black­ett and Paddy McNair.

“I prob­a­bly would have played, but it’s just one of those things,” said Keane.

“You have to be in the right place at the right time – and un­for­tu­nately it didn’t work out for me.

“I got over it pretty quickly, no re­grets.”
