A furious Roy Keane was left “flabbergasted” by Harry Maguire and David de Gea’s errors for Steven Bergwijn’s opening goal for Tottenham against Manchester United on Friday Night.
Bergwijn put Spurs ahead midway through the first half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, dribbling easily away from Maguire and dispatching a low, central shot which De Gea was unable to keep out.
Sky Sports pundit Keane slammed Maguire for getting beaten so easily but reserved his strongest criticism for De Gea, saying he’s “sick to death” of the “overrated Manchester United goalkeeper”.
“I’m shocked at that goal,” the former United captain said on Sky Sports. “I’ve watched a lot of football over the years, but to give that away, I’m fuming.
“I can’t believe [Luke] Shaw heads the ball up and then runs forward, I’m staggered at Maguire, staggered that an international player can get done like this, and I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper.
“This is an established international goalkeeper. I’m flabbergasted. There’s got to be something going on at half-time. If I was Ole, make some changes, get some lads off the pitch, some of them are going through the motions at the moment.”
It is not the first time Keane has been critical of De Gea. After Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton in March, he accused the Spain international of arrogance after his attempted clearance struck Dominic Calvert-Lewin and bounced into the net.
