Ian Wright Shuts Down Richard Keys' Terrible Opinion On Newcastle United Tactics
Richard Keys once again embarrassed himself with an opinion about Newcastle United, this time criticising Rafa Bentiez's tactics, but Ian Wright was on the mark to call him out on social media.
It's not that long ago that that Rio Ferdinand made a really stupid comment about how well Mike Ashley was running Newcastle United. The former England centre back was saved by an even more stupid comment though.
Just as everyone was getting riled up about what Rio had said former Sky Sports presenter Richard Keys came along and suggested that manager Rafa Benitez pay for his own transfers.
Yeah for some reason the king of banter thought that if Benitez was going to complain about not having money to buy anyone the former Liverpool manager should stick his hand in his pockets and find millions for a transfer.
Keys rightly received a torrent of abuse for his moronic musings that seemed a lot like him just defending his mate's choice not to spend any money on the club he owns.
Now the beIN Sports presenter has come a cropper again. During Newcastle's game with Spurs on Saturday he tweeted his annoyance at the Magpies tactics:
This is awful. And they said Mourinho's football was from a forgotten era. Any reason why Newcastle can't go over the half way line?- Richard Keys (@richardajkeys) February 2, 2019
Fortunately former Arsenal striker, turned BBC Sport pundit, was on hand on Twitter to show just how idiotic Keys' opinion was:
I'm sure I watched a Newcastle team play in the same manor and beat Manchester City! Not sure what other tactics he can use with the players he has . Love Rafa. :heart:- Ian Wright (@IanWright0) February 2, 2019
A cynic might suggest that Keys is purposely going after Benitez once again.
It was shown to be a ridiculous suggestion as Newcastle played very well against a top four side for the second time in a week.
Having shocked Manchester City on Tuesday, despite conceding after 25 seconds, with a 2-1 win and were only beaten 1-0 by Spurs after a late mistake by goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka.
Will Keys ever learn?
