Liverpool Fan Hits Back At Roy Keane's 'Bad Champions' Dig With Thread

Liverpool Fan Hits Back At Roy Keane's 'Bad Champions' Dig With Thread

One Liverpool fan has hit back at Roy Keane after the former Manchester United midfielder claimed Liverpool were 'bad champions,' by producing a thread of when a similar fate befell Keane and United.

Many believe that Liverpool's title defence ended on Sunday evening, with Manchester City's 4-1 win at Anfield leaving their rivals 10 points behind having played a game more.

The loss left Keane seething in the Sky Sports studio at how Jurgen Klopp's side had gone about their title defence, from winning the Premier League by 17 points to being so far behind in just a number of months.

The former United midfielder claimed that Klopp's side were 'bad champions' and also had a go at the 'excuses' he's heard for their underperforming.

One Liverpool fan has hit back with a thread showing when Keane and United lost Rio Ferdinand to an eight point suspension, comparing it to his side losing Virgil van Dijk through injury.

Roy Keane Slams Liverpool As ‘Bad Champions’ And Criticises Jurgen Klopp’s Excuses

published at2 months ago

Klopp has been forced to play Fabinho and Jordan Henderson in defence, also effecting his midfield, although on the weekend neither of his two new central defensive signings played.

Ever Sir Alex Ferguson, the man who managed Keane to his league titles, said it was harder to retain the league than win it the first time.

Where the Liverpool fan's criticism might fall down is the fact that Keane would probably agree that United were bad champions in 2003, based on the evidence, and he has three back-to-back title winning occasions out of his seven wins as evidence, including three titles won in-a-row.

Do you think Liverpool are bad champions?
