Roy Keane slams ‘sloppy’ and ‘lazy’ Fred after disappointing performance against Liverpool



Roy Keane slammed Manchester United midfielder Fred after his performance against Liverpool, questioning why Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to persevere with the Brazilian. Fred endured a torrid evening as United fell to a 4-2 defeat at home to their arch-rivals, struggling to keep possession with one of his wayward passes resulting in Liverpool’s third goal early on in the second-half. The 28-year-old was replaced by Mason Greenwood shortly after with former United skipper Keane condemning his ‘lazy’ and ‘sloppy’ performance. ‘I know Ole preserves with Fred but I can’t see it,’ he told Sky Sports.

‘How they think Fred is going to get United back to winning titles I don’t know. I know he [Solskjaer] dragged him off but even so it was sloppy, it was lazy. It is school boy stuff.

[Harry] Maguire is a loss but these are school boy errors. ‘Fred is under no pressure there and gives it away. Shaw is an experienced international player. We are building the goalkeeper [Dean Henderson] up to say is he going be the future no1 for United and they come up short.

‘Maguire is a loss but they are school boy errors, it has nothing to do with losing Maguire.’ Keane brutally added: ‘I think the fact they took Fred off was a bigger help.’ United have already sealed a top four finish but have now lost three of their last four games in all competitions, conceding 10 goals in the process.
