Roy Keane Takes Aim At 'Cry Baby' Manchester United Players

Roy Keane Takes Aim At 'Cry Baby' Manchester United Players

ITV shorn of Champions League highlights this season, Roy Keane still found a medium to voice his opinions on Manchester United.

He popped up on Notts TV for a chat on Wednesday and addressed the current situation at his former club.

"We talk about footballers and managers, not every player is going to get along with their manager and the manager is not going to like every player," said the Ireland assistant manager.

But what you do as a footballer, and whatever disagreements I've had with one or two managers, when you cross that line, you play for the team.

I don't care what fallout you've had with your manager, I don't care if you've been at each others' throats, because that is part of the industry, people do fall out, it happens in other industries.

Unfortunately when you're at Man United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, things will get exaggerated.

But if you're a footballer for Man United and you put that jersey on and walk out and don't give 100 per cent because you might be upset with somebody, then good luck to Mourinho in this job.

"Players who get upset with the manager or coaching staff and think 'I'm not going to train properly because somebody upset me'... there's a lot of cry babies out there," added Keane.

"When you walk out on that pitch, you're playing for your pride, your're playing for your family, your city, whatever it might be. Don't get that worried about what the manager's said about you or the coaching staff.

"You can fall out after the match, but when the game's going on liven up, play with pride, play with energy, play with spirit and hopefully play with a bit of skill.

"You can't always play with the skill, you can have a bad day, but on your bad days you roll your sleeves up and you fight for that jersey and don't get distracted by the balloons out there."
