Keane the Chinaman

Twitter was sent into overdrive in the immediate aftermath, Paul Scholes hit out at him yesterday and now Roy Keane has sliced himself off a piece of criticism pie concerning Ashley Young.

The fiery Irishman dubbed Young an absolute disgrace for the dive he performed during the Champions League encounter with CSKA Moscow, stating that senior players needed to get hold of him and tell him what was what.

In Keane’s words if Young’s a Manchester United player then Keane is a Chinaman. We can absolutely confirm Keane is not from China.

"If Ashley Young is a Man United player, I'm a Chinaman. He is an absolute disgrace," Keane said.

"The senior players need to get hold of him. That shouldn't be accepted at Manchester United.

"That's not leaving your leg in. That's different. It's the somersault he does, it's an absolute disgrace.

"Maybe once or twice can be seen as a mistake. But he's done it nine or 10 times and he's done it at his previous clubs."

Van Gaal's advice on fans

Elsewhere, youngster Jesse Lingard has revealed that Louis van Gaal told his players to ‘ignore the fans’ during the win over Moscow earlier this week.

Criticism from the stands has been fairly common in recent times at Old Trafford, but Van Gaal apparently doesn’t want his players at risk of being affected by it.

Carrick on Martial

Lastly, Michael Carrick has warned that not too much pressure should be placed on the shoulders of fan favourite Anthony Martial.

The French youngster has kicked off his Old Trafford career in style after a summer move from AS Monaco, but there’s an obvious danger that a ‘too much expectation too soon’ scenario could play out.

Carrick also praised the striker’s ability, stating that he looked a lot older than his age on the pitch.
