Roy Keane Wout Weghorst Man Utd

Despite beating Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-final, Roy Keane slammed Manchester United for their poor performance.

Complacent Players

The former United skipper did not enjoy watching the team play in the quarter-final even though they came back from a goal down to beat Fulham 3-1.


Keane felt that the players were complacent on the pitch and such an attitude will cost them against Brighton in the semi-final.

Unbelievably Poor

Speaking to ITV Sport, Roy Keane said: “Obviously with the FA Cup the priority is getting into the next round but with United, I still think their manager will be disappointed with what he saw. Of course, Fulham self-destructed but United were so poor it was unbelievable.

He continued: “I’ve kind of lost that little bit of confidence watching them now. I think about a month or two ago you’re thinking ‘yeah, they’re up for it’, but the last few games I’ve seen they have a real habit of, I think it’s OK to play moments every now and then, but I think that seems to be their DNA at the moment.

“And I think they’ve got into some real bad habits. It’s almost they’re turning up today thinking ‘we’re Man United, we’re going to win football matches.
