Watch: ‘They threw Ole under the bus’ – Keane slams Man Utd players
Former Manchester United United captain Roy Keane feels that his prediction has come true after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure.
Keane, who won seven Premier League titles and a Champions League title with United, has never been afraid to criticise his former club.
The former Republic of Ireland international felt that United’s players downed tools during Jose Mourinho’s reign and predicted that Solskjaer would face similar problems
“I don’t fall for the things said that they will now play well,” Keane said on Sky Sports in April 2019. “These are the same players who threw Mourinho under the boss and they will do the same to Ole.
“Leopards don’t change their spots. There are too many bluffers at this club to get United back to the very top.”
After three years in the Old Trafford dugout, Solskjaer was sacked earlier this month following a disastrous start to the Premier League season.
And Keane says he’s been proven right this season by the players’ performances and their lack of work rate under the Norwegian.
🗣 "These lads have done what I predicted and thrown him under the bus."
