Roy Keane “disagreed with everything” Manchester United interim boss Michael Carrick said in his interview after the draw at Chelsea on Sunday. United picked up a point at Stamford Bridge after Jorginho’s penalty cancelled out Jadon Sancho’s opener. It was Jorginho who gifted United their opener 10 minutes into the second half.
The Italy international miscontrolled a high ball and allowed Sancho to run free on goal.
Jorginho made amends from the spot after Aaron Wan-Bissaka had fouled Thiago Silva.
Keane and fellow pundits Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Jamie Carragher were convinced referee Anthony Taylor made the right decision.
But Carrick though otherwise, telling Sky Sports: “I don’t think it was a penalty at all.”
“And now all of a sudden he’s proud of them this week and they had a plan? What about all the other games they had? Why aren’t they making effort in the other games? Why aren’t they closing down people in the other games?
“He’s talking about the high pressure – we saw all the stats before the match, they’re the worst in the league at closing people down, winning the ball back.
“Praising players, praising players for doing their jobs. He mentioned the three midfielders – it’s ridiculous.
“He was sitting in the dugout for the last few months with Ole, last few years.
“They weren’t just with Ole, they were with Mourinho as well before that, and what are they going to stay on with the new manager?
“[That’s] not necessarily [right], not if they’re not up to the job.
“Some of the staff have been here a number of years. I get the impression of Man United in the last few years, whether it be some of the backroom staff or people upstairs, I think there is an element now of a job for the boys now, ‘a job for the boys, wink, wink, look after each other, know the right people’.
“That’s why they’re eighth or ninth in the league.”
