Roy Keane claims Man Utd ‘are the new Spurs’ and says Rashford ‘looked like a child’ up front in astonishing rant
ROY KEANE claimed Manchester United “are the new Spurs” after their 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.
Ange Postecoglou deservedly grabbed his first Premier League win courtesy of Pape Matar Sarr’s strike and Lisandro Martinez’s own goal.
Keane, 52, said Spurs were “lovely” – but only after slamming the Red Devils.
Appearing on Sky Sports after the match, the Irishman fumed: “Man United are the new Spurs. Desperate. Absolutely desperate.
“The biggest insult I always think about is teams who can’t do it away from home, players who aren’t up for it away from home.
“They’re a good team, they fancy it when their home fans are in front of them, they’ve got that support and energy. United go away today.
“Second half, weak, no leadership, gave bad goals away. Spurs were lovely. All credit to them. It’s easy to play against Man United also.”
Keane wasn’t finished there, also laying into Red Devils forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
He continued: “I said before the game they were poor against Wolves but they got the result and will be better today. They weren’t.
“They were fine in the first half an hour but the game is over 90 minutes. You’re not going to dominate that long but you’ve got to show some belief, desire, fight.

“They’re bringing on Martial – you might as well bring on Frank Stapleton and Norman Whiteside. Martial is not going to get you out of trouble.
“Rashford played through the middle again. Usual stuff. He’s like a child up there. He’s obviously not happy playing there. His body language and his first few touches suggest he doesn’t want to play through the middle.
“But you have to. You’ve got to do a job for the team. You’re looking at the captain, the senior players, established international players – easy to play against. That’s the biggest insult I can give to these Man United players.”
He later went on to add that Mason Mount and Bruno Fernandes looked like “schoolboys”.
Gary Neville was also scathing of United in commentary.
He said: “Manchester United were out-played, out-fought, missing in midfield, not good enough up front and at the back they gave away goals.
“Well done to Spurs. Manchester United have a lot of work to do.”
On Tottenham’s new dawn, the 48-year-old added: “There will be some thrills here this season under Postecoglou.”
