Roy Keane has tipped Manchester United’s ‘bluffers’ to get Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the sack following the club’s ‘disgraceful’ display against Tottenham last weekend.
Manchester United suffered their joint-heaviest ever Premier League defeat after being thrashed 6-1 by the north London side at Old Trafford, Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane each scoring twice as Spurs ruthlessly exposed the Red Devils’ defensive shortcomings.
It was the latest disappointing defeat in what has been a concerning start to the season for Solskjaer and his side, who languish in 16th-place in the Premier League after winning just one of their opening three fixtures.
Former club captain Keane has now launched a scathing attack on the current side and labelled their performance last weekend as ‘disgraceful’, predicting Solskjaer will be ‘thrown under the bus’ by his players should performances not drastically improve in the coming weeks – just like his predecessors.
“I’ve been saying it for the last 12 months, year and a half, their performance against Spurs was disgraceful,” Keane said on ITV.
“You all have bad days in football. Some of the players were a disgrace to the Man United badge.
“Too many bluffers and ultimately, these players will cost Ole his job. The players he has got there – they threw the previous manager under the bus. They will do the same to Ole.”
United travel to face Newcastle in their first fixture following the international break, before beginning their Champions League campaign with an away clash against last season’s runners-up Paris Saint-Germain three days later.
The Red Devils will be without the suspended Anthony Martial for the trip to face Newcastle, as well as deadline day signing Edinson Cavani, the Uruguayan being forced to quarantine following his arrival from France.
