Roy Keane doubles down on Virgil van Dijk criticism after Liverpool captain's comments

Roy Keane doubles down on Virgil van Dijk criticism after Liverpool captain's comments

The former Man Utd skipper brought up Virgil van Dijk in a recent podcast appearance.

Roy Keane has doubled down over his comments about Virgil van Dijk by saying he’s entitled to "get something wrong" after the Liverpool captain denied Keane's claims of being arrogant.

In the aftermath of Sunday's game at Anfield, a disappointed Van Dijk said there was only one team trying to win the Premier League clash.

"We want to win every game, especially against a team like them," he said. “It’s frustrating as we were superior in all aspects and they were just hoping on the counter attack to hurt us.

Van Dijk would also claim that United were "buzzing" to get a point; a statement that Roy Keane found insulting.

In fact, moments after the interview, Keane would brand the Liverpool skipper "arrogant" and "disrespectful" in a quite extraordinary outburst on Sky Sports.

"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."

Van Dijk has since responded to Keane's criticism by insisting he didn't regret his post-match comments.

And days later, Keane brought up the Dutch defender again when discussing Manchester City's result against Crystal Palace.

“I saw Crystal Palace go to Manchester City – Crystal Palace are no Manchester United, and you should see the way they were set up, and we all praised Roy Hodgson and they managed to get a draw," he said on the Stick to Football podcast, sponsored by Sky Bet.

"I didn’t see anyone from City criticising Crystal Palace. The fact they scored in the game might be slightly different, but I think when you’re going into certain games, survival is the name of the game – United will take the point.

"I didn’t see United after the game having over the top celebrations as if they were delighted to get away with a point – they would’ve taken it before the game.

“He [Virgil van Dijk] is entitled to his opinion as well, he’s entitled to maybe get something wrong. I’ve said things after games when I was at United and thought that it was a bit over the top, but that was generally against my own team."

Keane added: "I don’t think ever in my career I criticised a team for the way they played, because every team must find [something] different. You have to admire that’s part of the game as well.”
