Manchester United are through to a domestic cup final for the first time in five years, and Roy Keane was thrilled with the result at full time.

Appearing on Sky Sports' coverage of the game, Keane even made joking and audacious request of United boss Erik Ten Hag, asking the Dutch manager if he could sort him out with free tickets for the game.

Roy Keane asks Erik Ten Hag for free cup final tickets

Manchester United cruised through their EFL Cup semi-final second leg on Wednesday night, with Anthony Martial and Fred both scoring to seal a 5-0 aggregate win over Nottingham Forest.

The game also saw the return of Jadon Sancho to Old Trafford after a prolonged period on the sidelines, in what manager Erik Ten Hag will no doubt have seen as a very positive night for his United side.


They will now face Newcastle in the final on February 26th, and tickets are set to be in hot demand.


Newcastle are in their first cup final since losing to Manchester United in the 1999 FA Cup final, and are hoping to pick up their first major silverware since 1955.

Roy Keane played for Manchester United in that 1999 FA Cup final - and was stretchered off injured early in the game - and is keen to be at Wembley on February 26th to see his former team run out against Newcastle.


Appearing on Sky Sports' coverage of Wednesday's semi-final, Keane was part of a trio who interviewed United manager Erik Ten Hag. As Ten Hag was leaving, Keane made an audacious request to the Dutchman.

Keane: If you've any spare tickets for the final, you'll let me know? Two complimentaries I hope, yes?

Ten Hag: I think so, Roy. No problem!

Keane: Complimentary as well - I'm not paying!

We're sure that Roy Keane will find his way to Wembley one way or another - whether that be through Erik Ten Hag's complimentary tickets or through another means.

The EFL Cup final represents a real chance for Ten Hag to win his first piece of silverware in charge of Manchester United, and a major chance for the club to win its first trophy in six years.


They also remain in the FA Cup, where they will face West Ham in the fifth round, and in the Europa League, where they will face Barcelona in a mouthwatering first knock-out round.
