Roy Keane Got Heated With Jamie Carragher When Discussing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Roy Keane looked like he was ready to come to blows with Jamie Carragher as the pair discussed the future for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following Manchester United's loss to Liverpool.
The game at Anfield held even more significance than usual on Sunday as Solskjaer had taken charge of United just over a year ago following the 3-1 loss to their fierce rival in December 2018.
It was no better for the team than it had been 13 months ago when Jose Mourinho took charge of his final game as United manager and thoughts after the match turned to what had gone wrong during the 2-0 loss.
In the Sky Sports studio Solskjaer came under criticism but not from Keane as he defended his former teammate and called for him to get more time.

It's getting a little heated!

"Give him time" Keane implored as he also discussed the fact that David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho had also not been given long enough to turn things around.
Whilst Carragher seemed to agree with the idea that Moyes' shouldn't have been sacked so soon into his six year contract he did bafflingly ask if Keane would still want the Scotsman at Old Trafford now.
United initially improved under Solskjaer following Mourinho's sacking last season and the incredible win in Paris, which saw the overcome a two goal deficit against PSG in the Champions League, earned him the permanent role as manager.
Things quickly went downhill at the end of last season and, despite still being in with a shout of finishing in the top four this season, form hasn't improved in the former United striker's first full term in charge of the club.

The Norwegian, who became a club legend for his winner in the 1999 Champions League final, seemed uncomfortable when discussing Marcus Rashford's injury following the game, with reports the striker will be missing for up to three months.
Solskjaer revealed United could look for loans deals before the end of the month to keep the squad strong enough for their pursuit of the top four.
Is Solskjaer the right man to take the club forward?
