The wife of Manchester United's Michael Carrick, Lisa Carrick, didn't seem in the least bit happy about Roy Keane's comments about her husband's team's performance in their 2-0 defeat to Olympiakos, and his interview technique.

The Premier League champions have endured a difficult season in David Moyes' first year in charge, currently languishing in 6th place in the table, and find themselves 15 points behind leaders Chelsea and 11 points behind the Champions League qualification places, the last of which is occupied by rivals Liverpool.

It seems that the Reds' only chance to be in the Champions League next season was to win the trophy this term, but what followed was a lacklustre display to hand them their first defeat in the Champions League this season.

And Keane was quick to criticise United's performance against the Greek champions.

Carrick was sent out for TV duties after the game, but  Keane was not impressed with the successor to his no.16 shirt.

He said: "That interview was just like their performance, flat."

When asked by fellow colleague Adrian Chiles what more Carrick could say, the 42-year-old added:

"Say a bit more, give a bit more urgency in his interview. It just reflected United's performance tonight; flat, no urgency. He keeps saying 'Well, next game,' for some of them there won't be another game for them. That's the reality of it."

Mrs Carrick then immediately took to twitter to let everyone know what she thought.

"Roy Keane what a **** says anything to provoke a reaction.. That's all.. Done."

It looks like he certainly got one.

She then later deleted her tweet and added: "Deleted my tweet .. Emotions got the better of me .. Just disappointed."

The Red Devils next play Olympiakos in three weeks time at Old Trafford, where they will have to put in a much better performance to overturn the 2-0 deficit and have any hope of progressing to the quarter-finals.
