Watch: ‘Why are you playing Fred!?’ fumes Roy Keane after derby defeat
Things got heated in the post-match debate between Roy Keane, Gary Neville, Micah Richards and Graeme Souness in the aftermath of Manchester United‘s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.
As ever, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was at the centre of the discussion, with Neville and Keane in particular being level-headed in their analysis of how their former team-mate is doing.
Neither of the Manchester United legends could bring themselves to suggest that the club should change manager, but Keane did have some questions over Solskjaer’s decision to keep playing the much-maligned Fred.
“You’re going into a match looking at the bus and [Luke] Shaw, [Harry] Maguire, Fred are there and your job is depending on these guys? You’re in trouble,” Keane fumed.
“You’ve got international players. Anyone who tells me Fred is good enough for United – they’re in cuckoo land.”
🗣 "If Ole walked in now I'd grab him and say 'why are you playing Fred'"
