‘I hope Ronaldo isn’t watching because he’ll be pulling out of the deal’: Roy Keane blasts Man United’s ‘lacklustre’ first half against Wolves after urging Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to give his players a ‘rollicking’ at half-time

  • Roy Keane blasted Manchester United’s first half performance against Wolves 
  • The Sky Sports pundit said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men looked ‘lacklustre’

  • The former United man urged Solskjaer to give his team a ‘rollicking’ at half-time 

Roy Keane slammed Manchester United’s ‘lacklustre’ first half performance against Wolves and said he hoped Cristiano Ronaldo was not watching.

United struggled to get a foothold in the first 45 minutes at Molineux and failed to have a shot on target as Wolves created the better chances.

Keane was not impressed with what he saw from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and said they better hope new signing Ronaldo was not watching or he may think twice about coming back to Old Trafford.

‘They’re just depending on their talent alone as if they just think that’s enough to get them through a game,’ Keane told Sky Sports.

‘They look like they’ve had a European game, they’ve been away in Russia somewhere, got back late, early Thursday morning and they can’t get going. 

‘They’re still creating opportunities with the Greenwood chance and we think the keeper gets a touch on that so United are still dangerous. 

‘But their overall play, their body language, they look lacklustre. The players aren’t doing their jobs, they’re giving the ball away cheaply, there’s no energy to their play, there’s nobody running off the ball, it’s all sort of five-a-side football.

The Sky Sports pundit also urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to give his players a rollicking

‘My only worry, I hope Ronaldo is not watching because he’ll be pulling out of the deal. Really not good enough.’

Keane also urged Solskjaer to give his players a ‘rollicking’ for their efforts in the first half.

‘He [Solskjaer] is talking to Carrick, he’s talking to Micky Phelan, I’d be telling them to shut up. You know what you can see. 

‘There’s nothing wrong with going to the dressing room and giving the lads a good old rollicking. Show some enthusiasm for the game. Run at people, tackle people. They look lacklustre.’
