Roy Keane names the one thing the Man Utd dressing room 'wouldn't have tolerated' with Jadon Sancho

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has named the only thing he believes the current dressing room 'wouldn't have tolerated' with Jadon Sancho.

Keane played for United from 1993 to 2005 under Sir Alex Ferguson, and was part of some of the most successful sides in the club's history.

But more recent managers have consistently had more issues to deal with in the dressing room. Those include current boss Erik ten Hag, with the most high-profile of those being the situation involving Jadon Sancho.

Sancho is now training away from the first team squad after a public dispute with Ten Hag after not giving an apology, and has reportedly been 'exiled' from using first team facilities, as per the Daily Mirror.

Now, speaking on The Overlap alongside Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Ian Wright and Jill Scott, Keane has addressed the situation from a dressing room perspective - and detailed the one thing that they would not have tolerated when he was a player.

He explained: "If a player's dragging his heels in training... we've all worked with players who have maybe had moments, or weeks, or months where they're thinking about moving, or coming back from injury. They might be struggling.

"But a good strong team wouldn't tolerate that. Wouldn't tolerate a player slacking off.

"If you've got question marks over this player [Sancho], he's not training properly, but he does turn around and show some humility and goes, 'Maybe I got it wrong'. You can move on pretty quickly.

"We've been in dressing rooms where players come in and say, 'Sorry, lads', and it's forgotten about very quickly."

The Irishman has consistently made comparisons between today's United squad and the one that achieved so much while he was a player.

When Jose Mourinho was in charge, Keane told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I do think the players, obviously, get away with murder. Just the way they hide behind the manager.

"Whatever you say about the players, they have thrown him under the bus."
