Roy Keane Scoffed At Gary Neville's Sympathy For Manchester United Players

Gary Neville had some sympathy for Manchester United's players following their defeat to Manchester City on Wednesday. Roy Keane, unsurprisingly, did not.

Neville thought United has been run into the ground by Pep Guardiola's side by the time Leroy Sane scored the second goal of last night's game. He could understand why Matteo Darmian was unable to close down the German's strike.

"If that's a player giving it their all then Man Utd are in bigger trouble than I even think - and I think they are in huge trouble," said Keane, who employed extensive eye-rolling throughout his appearance on Sky Sports.

Oh Gary, Gary, it's two yards, man! I guarantee if you done the same, do you think we'd be telling you off? If you didn't close somebody down. Of course we would!

He's back there. He's already back there. It's two yards. Get out to him like your life depended on it.

Keane thought it was a good performance from Manchester City but one which was easier to give due to Man Utd being uncompetitive.

"I reckon they are sitting in the dressing room and they can't believe how comfortable it was," said Keane.

Neville felt the game illustrated the current gulf in class between the two teams.

"I think that's everything United have got," said Neville.

"I don't think I looked at any [United] player on that pitch and thought they could have given more."

Keane scoffed at the suggestion effort levels from some in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side had been at 100 per cent.

"You need to see Fred for the second goal then. That's not giving your all. That's cheating. What he done was cheating, letting the guy run off him."
