Roy Keane has told Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United players that they should be “embarrassed” by their league position this season.

The Red Devils dropped down into sixth place in the top-flight table after they slumped to a 2-0 loss to Arsenal at The Emirates last weekend.

Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League since Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford last summer.

The Red Devils had been hoping to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge but that is now looking increasingly unlikely.

Mourinho had been tasked with steering the Red Devils back into the top four after they finished fifth under Louis van Gaal last season.

And former Manchester United captain Keane has been less than impressed by what he’s seen from Mourinho’s men in the Premier League this term.

Keane said on ITV Sport on Wednesday night: “He [Mourinho] has come out with plenty of excuses over the last few months but I can’t see any reason why United should shy away from these challenges.

“They are sixth in the league, 19 points behind Chelsea, the manager and the players should be embarrassed by that.”
