Arsenal legend: Man United need to sign player like Roy Keane

Ian Wright believes Manchester United could do with a player like Roy Keane to shake up the dressing room

Ian Wright says Jose Mourinho is missing a character like Roy Keane in the Manchester United dressing room.

The Red Devils have made a stuttering start to life under Mourinho after the ex Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss took over the reins from Louis van Gaal following the end of the 2015-16 season.

Mourinho signed four players in the summer transfer window as the new Manchester United manager looked to stamp his authority on the Red Devils squad, snapping up Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba.

However, the Red Devils had only managed to win two of their last 11 Premier League games ahead of the visit of Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Mourinho really needs a player like Keane to shake up the Manchester United dressing room.

“Can you imagine going into the dressing room with Roy Keane after you’ve missed a couple of chances?” Wright told The Sun Goals podcast.

“That’s what I’m saying about the DNA of Manchester United and the players that you’ve got to try and sign to replicate that kind of dressing room. That’s what Manchester United need.”
