Roy Keane explains why he has heavily criticized Maguire this season

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has explained why he has heavily criticised Manchester United captain Harry Maguire this season.

Keane told The Times: “I actually think 95 per cent of my punditry is positive. I have been critical of some players over the last year or two if they’ve been playing badly or not doing their jobs. People don’t mind that.

“Then you criticise a Maguire or a [Harry] Kane, and it’s, ‘Ah, that’s not acceptable.’So it’s OK if I slag off the Tottenham right-back, no one mentions him. But you can’t be saying that about Harry. Why not? Did you not see the game?

“I’m trying to be honest. I don’t mind a player not being good, but don’t be so bad. Maguire said players can have a drop-off after being involved in Euros. [Declan] Rice hasn’t had a drop-off.

“Players can have a drop-off but don’t go from there to here. I’ve got no agendas. I don’t know Harry Maguire. I don’t know his agent. I don’t know anyone’s agent. I don’t have an agent.”
