Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane believes some Red Devils players “should be hiding” after yet another dire showing against Liverpool last night.
United were thumped 4-0 at Anfield by their bitter rivals, leaving them three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with an inferior goal difference and having played two games more.
For seven-time Premier League winner Keane, 50, recent performances have left a sour taste, with the Irishman suggesting several individuals have already decided to leave Old Trafford this summer.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane said: “There’s six or seven [players] — look at the Everton game a couple of weeks ago — they’ve already left the building. They’re gone. You can tell with their performances. They’re on their holidays, they’ve switched off.
“They don’t turn up, they lose 4-0, they’re shaking hands going down the tunnel, they’re doing the interviews with sound bites. You should be ashamed of your life. You should be hiding.
“It’s not the club I played for. It doesn’t reflect what Man Utd stood for when I played for it. It’s chalk and cheese. I don’t see a Manchester United team out there fighting and playing with pride.”
Things do not get much easier for Ralf Rangnick’s side either, with a trip to Arsenal lunchtime tomorrow followed by a midweek home clash with Chelsea next week.
