Keane criticised Ten Hag for praising Bruno Fernandes


Former Red Devils Roy Keane criticised United manager Eric Ten Hag for praising Bruno Fernandes for giving away the penalty to his teammate Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United beat Everton 3:0 at Goodison Park on Sunday. Alejandro Garnacho scored a brilliant overhead goal to start the scoring for the away team.

Marcus Rashford doubled the lead as Bruno Fernandes handed him the ball to take the penalty. Meanwhile, Anthony Martial added a third goal in the 75th minute to seal the game for the visitors.

Speaking after the match, Ten Hag praised Fernandes for allowing Rashford to take the penalty. He said :-

“You see also how great [a] captain Bruno is.

“See, feel, assess that your team-mate needed that goal. He has the confidence in Rashy, who is a good penalty taker. As a team you need that leadership that you back each other. We have to go step by step. This is one step.”

Keane claims United need to turn up for the big games

Roy Keane criticised Ten Hag for praising Fernandez, as he slammed manager’s post-match statement. He said :-

“He’s giving toffee out there to Bruno for passing on the ball for the penalty – absolute bloody rubbish, absolute rubbish coming out with that.”

“Man Utd are sixth now. If they were sixth a few years back you’d be embarrassed, but obviously they seem happy with sixth. They have a long way to go to compete with the best teams, City, Liverpool, Arsenal.

“And obviously you’ve got teams like Spurs, obviously Villa, and of course Newcastle. They go to Newcastle next week. We’ll see what United turns up, because that’s what they’re supposed to do, turn up for the big games.”

With victory against Everton, United have recorded their eight league win of this current campaign. But Ten Hag’s need to show up on big occasions to bring back their glory days.
