Roy Keane rages at Marcus Rashford following Manchester United’s loss against Newcastle United

After Manchester United's defeat to Newcastle United, Roy Keane slams two players.

When it comes to criticism, Manchester United veteran Roy Keane has never shied away from absorbing it. In an impassioned outburst following Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Newcastle, the former player-turned-commentator was angry at two specific individuals. Keane particularly criticized Marcus Rashford, comparing his current form drop to that of Anthony Martial.

According to Roy Keane, United lacked defense and aggressiveness. Keane stated, “United aren’t as talented as they think they are at the moment.”

He also questioned their body language and incapacity to produce outcomes while simultaneously refusing to change things and expecting better results. Roy Keane questioned the club’s direction after a dismal run of form that included a draw against Galatasaray and a defeat versus Newcastle. He said, [Rashford] is a local lad… He’s 26, he’s not a child anymore. He’s got that mega-deal now, huge money. He’s got to run more than anybody. If not, it’s not good.”

He also said that United were ‘drifting’ and that it was ‘crazy’ to expect better outcomes by continuing to do the same way. Marcus Rashford was referred to as the ‘local lad’ by Keane, who stated that he was no longer a youngster. Furthermore, Rashford needs to track back and set an example on the pitch for other players.

Manchester United supporters were outraged after the Newcastle United Twitter admin opted to feed the flames following the club’s victory over United. Anthony Gordon‘s goal was enough to see off Manchester United at St. James’ Park. In the 55th minute, the 22-year-old was in prime position to head in a Kieran Trippier cross.

Newcastle United‘s official Twitter account released a photo of the players in the changing room with the caption: Who’s that team we call United?
