Roy Keane Calls Out Jose Mourinho For 'Garbage' Post-Match Comments

Roy Keane Calls Out Jose Mourinho For 'Garbage' Post-Match Comments
By PJ Browne Updated

After Man Utd crawled over the line against Rostov in the Europa League on Thursday night - Marcos Rojo might not have even got there without some sustenance - Jose Mourinho complained to the media about a 'lack of respect for the club'.

The Portuguese manager is unhappy with the club's fixture schedule in the coming weeks. It's a factor which he believes will hinder his side's chances of winning the Europa League.

Man Utd play Middlesbrough at 12pm on Sunday. Mourinho would have preferred that game to be on Monday. He argued that Europa League contenders from Germany and Spain will have their fixtures tailored to their European schedule.

On ITV's Europa League highlights show, Roy Keane had no sympathy for the situation which Mourinho had outlined.

There was a controlled indignation from Keane as he called Mourinho's post-match comments 'garbage' and suggested that the job might be too much for him.

I've never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage? It's just utter nonsense what he's talking about.

He's manager of Manchester United - one of the biggest club's on the planet. The squad he's got, the players and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.

We were just looking at some of the cup draws they've had. They've had an easy ride in the cups. Some good draws, a lot of home draws. The guy's talking absolute nonsense. I've never heard so much rubbish in my life.

Maybe the club's too big for him. He can't deal with all the demands of the match. What match? It's cup competitions. Man Utd reserves could have won that game tonight.

I'm sick to death of him.

During the second half, with around 20 minutes remaining in the game, Marcos Rojo munched down a banana on the pitch. Keane didn't find it surprising that a player was having something to eat on the pitch, he's often seen players handed Jaffa Cakes during a game.

What did find curious was the drama surrounding the passing of the banana to Rojo. Keane believes that the whole scene was staged.

I wasn't shocked or surprised that a player was looking for some food. They made a bigger drama than what it was. He's got other staff. The fitness coach could have done it. The medical staff. He's passing it onto Ashley Young, he's passing it on.

I think that was all staged, without a shadow of a doubt.
