Roy Keane: “United are disrespecting Cristiano Ronaldo”


United legend Roy Keane hits out at the club after Ronaldo was left on the bench in their defeat to Manchester City.

Manchester United were thrashed in the Manchester derby by Manchester City as Cristiano Ronaldo watched on from the Etihad dugout. In the press conference afterwards, United boss Erik ten Hag said he did not introduce the Portuguese forward out of respect for his great career.

The Dutch manager’s decision has not gone unnoticed by anyone and Manchester United legend Roy Keane had his say on Sky Sports. “Manchester United should have let Cristiano Ronaldo leave the club in the summer. They are disrespecting him.”

“If you look at his goalscoring record, he has as much chance as any player to put the ball in the back of the net. He’s one of the greatest players of all time and if he’s sitting week in, week out on the bench at Manchester United it’s not good,” the former club captain player said.

Keane also spoke about the possible departure of the Portuguese player during the transfer window. “They should have let him go when the opportunity came up. He had options, I know that for sure, and to hang on to him to sit on the bench I think is ridiculous for a player of his stature.”
