Roy Keane has offered a stark warning to Manchester United fans about the future of their team if investment in the playing staff isn’t witnessed before the end of the window.
Appearing on Sky‘s Monday Night Football, Keane discussed the problems his former club would have if no additions were brought in before October 5
“if they don’t invest in the next week, then it’s tough days ahead.”
The former United captain has been left unimpressed with his former club’s start to the season, not just defensively but all over the pitch.
“It’s early days but they’ve given up a lot of goals and a lot of chances against Crystal Palace and Brighton so the signs aren’t great. It would be different if it was against Manchester City or Liverpool, with their brilliant attacking players but you’d expect them to have done better against Palace.
Roy Keane also discussed the pressure that current United boss and his former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be under if drastic improvements aren’t seen at Old Trafford this season.
“The remit will be different for Ole this year,” Keane told Monday Night Football. “I think last year, it was about getting into the top four – I know they got to three semi-finals – but it will be higher this year.
“They will certainly have to get a bit closer to Liverpool and Manchester City. The points total cannot be the same as it has been over the past three or four years.
“Ole will probably have to get his hands on a trophy. I think the honeymoon period is certainly over for Ole, and the pressure starts to mount now, particularly with the performances like that over the last week or so.”
