Roy Keane has blasted the current crop Manchester United players, saying they ‘should be ashamed of themselves’ for their role in getting David Moyes the sack yesterday, less than 10 months into his tenure as Old Trafford boss.
The former Manchester United captain was speaking on ITV in his role as a pundit last night and took the chance to criticise both the United players and chief executive Ed Woodward for Moyes’ untimely departure.
"He had a hard start,' Keane said. "Last summer, when he took the job, the chief executive didn't get the deals done and they had a slow start."
'I think it's a shame - he should have been given more time. Some of the players should be ashamed of themselves because they really let him down.' added Keane
Former boss Sir Alex Ferguson escaped any criticism from his former captain, on this occasion at least, despite considering it was he who handed the reins to Moyes last year.
“He put his name forward but obviously the club, at the end of the day, had to make the decision. You obviously can’t be critical of Alex Ferguson.”
Keane is never afraid to voice his opinion on matters at Old Trafford, but has surely earned the right to pass judgement by winning seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a single Champions League crown during 13 glorious seasons with the Red Devils.
Holland manager Louis Van Gaal is the early favourite to become the next Manchester United manager after Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp ruled themselves out of the running to become the next manager of the Premier League champions.
