Roy Keane Blasts 'Weak' Leeds United After Relegation To The Championship

Roy Keane Blasts 'Weak' Leeds United After Relegation To The Championship

Three years after their promotion from the Championship, Leeds United have been relegated from the Premier League this afternoon.

They entered today's home game against Spurs knowing that they needed a win to have any chance of retaining their place in the division. It quickly became apparent that there was to be no great escape. Spurs would take the lead inside the opening two minutes, going on to win the game 4-1.

Everton's win over Bournemouth meant that even a victory this in this game would not have been enough to save Leeds, although the manner in which they capitulated once again summed up their season as a whole.

They will now return to the Championship for the 2023/24 campaign.

Roy Keane blasts 'weak' Leeds United after relegation


Speaking on Sky Sports after today's games, Roy Keane did not mince his words when discussing Leeds United. He labelled them as 'weak' and said some of their defending was reminiscent of a 'pub team'.

They looked weak, didn't they? They looked week over the last few months, even with Sam coming in.

They were fighting for their lives today and conceded four goals at home. That's nowhere near good enough.

Whatever Sam was trying to do over the last few weeks, obviously he came in too late. Defensively, they're so weak.

Some of the goals we were looking at there, it's almost pub team defending. It's really not good enough.

They're strong enough mentally, that desire. Nowhere near good enough.

No holding back there.

Leeds United will look to bounce straight back to the Premier League next season, although they will need to improve in the Championship if they are to do so.

Their supporters will be hoping that this stay outside the top flight does not resemble their last, when it took them 16 seasons to get back into the division.
