Roy Keane launches astonishing attack on 'arrogant' Virgil van Dijk for comments about Man Utd

Roy Keane launches astonishing attack on 'arrogant' Virgil van Dijk for comments about Man Utd

Keane voiced his anger at Van Dijk.

Roy Keane has launched an astonishing attack on Liverpool captain Virgil van Dijk for his post-match comments following their goalless draw with Manchester United.

Liverpool were held to a frustrating stalemate by United at Anfield on Sunday to dent their title hopes.

Jurgen Klopp's side dominated possession but were unable to create many clear-cut chances.

After the match, Van Dijk claimed Liverpool were the only side trying to win the match and were "superior" in all areas except the scoreline.

"We had most of the ball and created most of the opportunities. There was only one team trying to win," Van Dijk told Sky Sports.

"Unfortunately it didn't happen. That is why it is frustrating because we want to win every game. Especially when you play against a team like them."

Former United captain Keane took exception to Van Dijk's comments, branding the Liverpool skipper "arrogant" and "disrespectful".

"There's a lot of arrogance coming out of him, dissing Manchester United like that," Keane said.

"He needs reminding that he is playing for a club that has won one title in 30-odd years.

"Manchester United are in a difficult place, just like Liverpool have been in a difficult place for many years. So maybe that arrogance backfired on him today.

"He needs to remember where he is coming from. One title in 33 years?

"He said Man United were buzzing and one team came to play. Yeah, I've come to Anfield many times with Manchester United where Liverpool were in a tough place and they were happy with a draw.

"The bottom line is that the most important stat is the scoreline. Liverpool had chances and didn't take them. That's their own fault."

Former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge responded to Keane's claims by saying: "I don't think he's disrespecting the club.

"He is disappointed with how Liverpool performed, looking at the stats, looking at how they controlled the game."

To which Keane replied: "That's arrogance."

United remain seventh in the Premier League after the draw and are now six points off the top four.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are now second - one point behind new league leaders Arsenal, who beat Brighton 2-0 earlier in the day.
