Roy Keane opens up about Man United’s Champions League exit
Roy Keane insists he was not surprised to see Man United dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla
Roy Keane has insisted that he was not surprised to see Manchester United dumped out of the Champions League by Sevilla on Tuesday night.
The Red Devils slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to the Spanish side as they suffered a shock defeat in front of their home fans to knock them out of Europe’s elite club competition.
The result leaves Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side playing for a top four finish in the Premier League and the FA Cup title this season.
Mourinho’s men have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League this season as well as the other competitions.
And former Red Devils captain Keane seems to think that Manchester United are playing like individuals rather than a team.
Speaking to ITV Sport, Keane said: “The expectation was for United to go through, but over the course of the two games, they didn’t deserve it.
” They are playing like individuals, not a team. I’m not surprised Man United lost because you just don’t know what you are going to get with this team.
“You can talk about tactics and systems, but players have got to do their job and when you are playing for United, you expect more.
“I always felt when you put on the jersey that you enjoyed the pressure, the history, the badge, the expectations.
“I get the impression with this team, they don’t look like they are enjoying that pressure.”
Manchester United are now preparing for their FA Cup quarter-final clash against Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to at least finish as runners-up to Manchester City in the top flight.
Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford last season.
