Roy Keane: Why I don’t rate Arsenal star Mathieu Flamini

Man United legend Roy Keane runs rule over Arsenal star Mathieu Flamini

Roy Keane says he doesn’t rate Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will be forced to rely on the France international in the coming months after defensive midfielder Francis Coquelin was ruled out for two months.

Flamini did a satisfactory job in the north London side’s 3-0 win against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Arsenal need to beat Olympiacos in Greece in their final Champions League group-stage game to book their place in the knockout stage.

However, former Manchester United captain Keane, who won seven Premier League titles during his Old Trafford career, explained why Flamini won’t shine in Arsenal’s biggest games.

“Not for me. I don’t fancy him,” Keane told ITV Sport.

“He is probably alright at home. At home, he isn’t bad. Nice and comfortable. Away from home, different game.”

Flamini has made four appearances in all competitions for the north London outfit this season.
