Roy Keane launched a scathing attack on Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho after Thursday’s Europa League win over Rostov, questioning whether the Portuguese is up to the job.
Speaking on Mourinho’s comments regarding fatigue, Keane said:
“I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage?
“It’s just utter nonsense what he’s talking about. He’s manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet. The squad he’s got… and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.
“We were just looking at some of the cup draws they’ve had. They’ve had an easy ride in the cups; some good draws and a lot of home draws. The guy’s talking absolute nonsense. I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life.
“Maybe the club’s too big for him. He can’t deal with all these demands at the match. What matches? Man United reserves could have won that game tonight. I’m sick to death of him.”
United defender Marcos Rojo was seen eating a banana towards the end of the game, passed to him by Ashley Young from the substitutes bench, as Rojo appeared to be suffering from fatigue.
But Keane said: “I think that was all staged, without a shadow of a doubt.
