Roy Keane says Marcus Rashford "played like a child" and Maguire "unacceptable"

Roy Keane has slammed the performances of Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire.

In the wake of Manchester United's 4-0 loss to Liverpool, Keane blasted the players for their displays.

While on pundit duty for Sky Sports, the former Red Devils captain spat: "We are hearing the same stuff all the time, we need to be together as a team, we need to do better. But we’re not seeing it. There is no doubt that they are talented players, but they are not a team.

"When they fancy it, they turn up, but when they are under pressure and under the cosh, they don’t have that team spirit that you need. This Manchester United team is short on talent anyway, I don’t think that they are as talented as they think. So they have to back it up with that spirit."

The Irishman then targetted England internationals Rashford and Maguire.

"Rashford’s performance, he played like a child upfront. Jesse Lingard coming on to save Manchester United? Defensively we are trying to help out Maguire, but that last goal is not acceptable for Manchester United.

"We talk about that rebuild again but Manchester United need to get some quality players in to try and compete. I don’t know if we’re fifth or sixth in the league, Manchester United fifth or sixth in the league? Unbelievable."

Do you think United's hopes of a top-four are over? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.


United found themselves a goal down inside five minutes in Liverpool owing to Luis Diaz's opening goal.

The Reds doubled their lead through Mohamed Salah, who latched onto Sadio Mane’s brilliant pass inside the box to slot past David De Gea. In the second half, Salah then scored a second before Mane secured the home side's fourth of the evening.

With the three points, Liverpool are now top of the Premier League table once. There's just a point between them and Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
