Roy Keane dismisses Erik ten Hag’s praise for Manchester United’s star

Erik ten Hag praised Fernandes' leadership abilities, describing him as a "great captain."

Former Manchester United player Roy Keane chastised manager Erik ten Hag for praising team captain Bruno Fernandes following United’s 3-0 win against Everton. Roy Keane, a football commentator, has frequently come under criticism for making some bold, but controversial remarks.

After allowing Marcus Rashford to take a key penalty in Sunday’s encounter against Everton, Erik ten Hag lauded Bruno Fernandes for his sportsmanship and captaincy ability. Bruno, United’s usual penalty taker, requested Rashford to take the penalty, demonstrating outstanding leadership characteristics. The former Red Devil, on the other hand, had a different take on the situation.

Roy Keane slammed the Dutch manager for the silly praise, claiming that his players had underperformed this season, as seen by their sixth-place finish. He accused the boss of ‘throwing away toffees,’ calling his compliments utter nonsense. To stay in the championship chase, Manchester United, according to Roy Keane, must compete with the likes of Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool.

Manchester United fans think the squad is back on track after defeating Everton 3-0 in Wednesday night’s Premier League encounter. In the same game that witnessed Garnacho’s ‘goal of the season’ candidate, Marcus Rashford scored his second Premier League goal of the season.

Anthony Martial also scored in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday night. This was their biggest win margin in the Premier League this season. They have only won 9 games since the start of the season and are in danger of being ousted from the Champions League group stages. As a result, it is critical that some of United’s top players begin contributing meaningfully to the team.
