Roy Keane Explains What He Would Do If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Walked Into Sky Sports Studio, It's TV Gold

Roy Keane says if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer walked into the Sky Sports studio after Saturday afternoon's defeat against Manchester City, then he would have 'grabbed him' and asked why he continues to play Brazilian midfielder Fred.

It was another day to forget for the Norwegian and his Manchester United team, who were outplayed from start to finish by City as goals from Eric Bailly [OG] and Bernardo Silva earned Pep Guardiola's side a deserved win at Old Trafford.

After the full-time whistle, pundits Gary Neville, Graeme Souness and Micah Richards gave their two cents in the studio but it was Roy Keane who produced the best soundbites, with this incredible rant about Fred being a standout moment.

The animated Keane continued his onslaught of the United team after their disappointing defeat.

"Ole was shook up in that interview," he noted. "It's tough for a manager when you've got beat in a match and he's getting asked hard questions but he's stepped up and he always has and I'll give him that.

"But if you're a manager, this morning he spoke about the players being in a good mood in the hotel, whatever the hell they were doing.

"You're going into a match looking at the bus and [Luke] Shaw, [Harry] Maguire, Fred are there and your job is depending on these guys? You're in trouble. You've got international players.

"Anyone who tells me Fred is good enough for United - they're in cuckoo land."

Keane also said that the 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday "felt worse" than the Liverpool result.

"City are quite a different team to Liverpool and they were happy to keep the ball," he added. "They just toyed with United. It was so poor, the difference in class, quality, decision-making.

"The old saying, men against boys, but United are so off it's unbelievable. Foden said 'it's a tough place to come' It's not. Ask Everton, ask Aston Villa, ask Liverpool. Teams are coming here and getting a bit of joy.

"I look for characters - McTominay, Fred - but these players are not good enough for Man United. Bailly is erratic. You should be coming off the pitch drained of energy. But Foden's chatting there as if he's just had a practice game."
