Roy Keane has dig at Cristiano Ronaldo after Man United defeat
“I’m glad he didn’t leave early”, he said after the Portuguese forward’s departure from the stadium before the match against Rayo ended last week.
A new season and the same scenario for Manchester United. The first game of the Erik ten Hag era in the Premier League could not have started worse, losing in front of their fans against Brighton.
From the outset, Cristiano Ronaldo’s starting on the bench suggested that the match would have even more to it. The Dutch coach wanted to change the team, but United continue to show defensive weakness.
United went into the break two goals behind and Ten Hag had no choice but to put on Ronaldo, and despite the Portuguese forward’s solid second half, Brighton held on to their lead and deservedly took all three points to get their season off to a strong start.
Keane has a pop at Ronaldo
Former United captain Roy Keane, speaking on Sky Sports, could not resist having a dig at Ronaldo after the 37-year-old left Old Trafford before the end of his team’s game against Rayo Vallecano last said. “Yeah well I’m glad he didn’t leave early,” said Keane.
