Manchester United’s big Roy Keane tears in Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw

Roy Keane has torn himself into Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire – calling the English duo’s performance against Liverpool a “shame”.

The former tenacious midfielder paralyzed the two Manchester United defenders and told them to “manage their game” after the disastrous defense in the defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s team saw them deliver five goals, a week after conceding four against Leicester City .

Recently, the Reds’ defensive record has come into the spotlight as their search for a clean sheet continues, the last of which comes in the 1-0 away win at Molineux. At home, their last shutout came at home in March, when Craig Dawson’s own goal proved to be the difference.

United captain Maguire missed a handful of matches after limping in the defeat to Aston Villa, but returned to defeat at King Power two weeks ago and it was an unfortunate comeback when he extinguished Patson Daka’s goal as a striker . ghost behind the English national team player.

There was further misery when Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota visited last week with Shaw going through a fierce time against Liverpool’s front three.

“They need a reaction, they have to show some character, United have some very talented players, especially going forward, but many of the players defensively, of course big questions about the two boys in midfield, but individual performances, [Luke] Shaw and [Harry] “Maguire last week, they were a disgrace, an absolute disgrace to the club, and these are established, international footballers,” Keane criticized.

“[Aaron] Wan-Bissaka, I do not even think Palace would take him back! He is not good enough for Manchester United. No feel for the ball, decision making. But what Manchester United have always had over the years are players with character, with personalities – I can not see that with this group.

“I remember Maguire talking this week, he was like a robot. He said, ‘uhhh ohhh sorry fans’, there was no emotion behind it. And these guys are on the back of a European Championship for England, so they have previously faced up to big fights.

“Recently, Shaw has fallen back into his own half from a few years ago. I’m tired of this chat after fights, people apologize. Harry Maguire talks about us coming together as a group, no – you have to sort your game out .

“If you’re going to be the leader of that group. You have to have the basics right. Do your own work. People keep saying, ‘he may not be in shape’ – may he not be in shape? He gave a goal away to Leicester last week, it has nothing to do with fitness! Just a lack of professionalism, not doing his job properly. “
