Roy Keane Had Some Remarkably Positive Things To Say About Man Utd

Man Utd easily hurdled what could have been a tricky obstacle on Wednesday evening as they hammered CSKA Moscow 4-1 in Russia. Though, their cause was aided by some helpfully poor defending from the home side.

Speaking on ITV's Champions League highlights show, Roy Keane more than agreed with presenter Mark Pougatch that Man Utd are a different side this season.

In fact, Keane believes his old team 'are back'.

Oh, United are back. United now look like they can compete to win the big trophies. Whereas over the last year or two, you're looking at them and thinking, 'They'll win a League Cup' or the so-called lesser trophies.

They're back now competing and you'd expect United now to be at the latter stages of the Champions League and certainly winning the Premiership.

Keane also lauded Romelu Lukaku - a player who destroyed Ireland at Euro 2016 - as a £75 million bargain.


He is a good player, at a good age; 24, an international player. He knows the Premiership.

I think he was a bargain at £75 million - it was obvious he was going to score goals.

He has got off to a good start. A big, strong boy. Speaks well, comes across well and seems like a decent character.

His record at Everton was fantastic and clearly, he has gone to a bigger club and better team, who will create so many chances for him, he will get 25-30 goals a season.
