Watch: Roy Keane Says He Would "Swing Punches" At David De Gea

Roy Keane has never been known to bite his tongue.

From his explosive playing career into his managerial career and subsequently into his punditry career, Keane has always said exactly what was on his mind.

On this occasion, several of Manchester United's players felt the wrath of Keane's ire following Steven Bergwijn's opening goal for Spurs. Keane sat stewing in a rage, getting redder and redder, as he launched into a few of Manchester United's poorest performers in the first half against Tottenham Hotspur.

Luke Shaw was scolded for poor positioning, likewise Harry Maguire for allowing Dutch winger Bergwijn to waltz through the United defence.

However, Keane saved the majority of his anger for goalkeeper David de Gea. Even before delving into De Gea's mistake, where the goalkeeper made a limp wristed attempt to keep out Bergwijn's shot, Keane merely stated that he was "sick" of him.

Keane laid into the Spaniard for letting through what should be a "routine save" for an international goalkeeper, with Keane saying that he would fight the United number one if he was one of his teammates.


"I would be fighting him at half time," said Keane.


"I would be throwing punches at him".

According to Keane, both Maguire and De Gea shouldn't be allowed on the team bus back to Manchester.

"I wouldn't let them on the bus on the way home, get a taxi back to Manchester".


Also amidst the rant, Keane described himself as "disgusted", "fuming", "shocked" and "flabbergasted" at the state of United in the first half. In fairness to Keane, even in the middle of a tirade, he can act as a thesaurus to perfectly describe his anger.
