Manchester United legend Roy Keane has questioned United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to keep playing midfielder Fred despite the player’s abysmal form.
The Brazilian retained his spot in midfield as we lost 2-0 to crosstown rivals Manchester City on Saturday, and his performance was far from convincing.
Sky Sports Pundit and ex-United captain Keane admitted he would hold Solskjaer if he walked into the studio and ask him why he continuously plays the Brazilian in the middle of the park.
‘Anyone who says Fred is good enough for Man Utd is living in cuckoo land and that is an important part of the football pitch,” a fuming Keane said.
“I was very fortunate when I was here we had players like Scholesey, Butty, Bryan Robson, Incey, brilliant players and more importantly brilliant characters.”
“He has to look himself in the mirror and say I need to do better here I think he came into Man Utd at a difficult time, but if you’ve got bluffers on the bus with you and you are depending on [Luke] Shaw and [Aaron] Wan-Bissaka. Imagine depending on these guys.
“If Ole walked in here now I’d grab him and say, ‘Why are you playing Fred in the middle of the park, huge position for Manchester United’.
“He has to take responsibility for that.”
