“F*cking help him out…” – Roy Keane blasts three Man United players for not helping teammate



| Last Updated:


Roy Keane has criticised three Manchester United players for not helping their teammate out during the club’s latest defeat against Crystal Palace.

United travelled to Selhurst Park on Monday night and lost 4-0 against Crystal Palace in embarrassing fashion. One player appeared more exposed than most.

Casemiro had one of his worst performances in a United shirt. He was partly at fault for three of the four goals whilst playing out of position in centre-back.

However, while the Brazilian has been receiving criticism for his performance, Roy Keane believes that other players needed to take responsibility and help their underperforming teammate out.

The former United captain was far from pleased with Jonny Evans, who was partnering Casemiro in the centre of defence, as well as the full-backs Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, for not helping their struggling teammate in certain moments.

“You’re looking at the lads around him, Jonny Evans. Jonny is a centre-half; that is his position. He’s got full-backs around him,” began Keane when speaking on Stick To Football.

“Sometimes you recognise that the reason you’re playing a team game is you look at one of your team-mates and you go, ‘it’s not happening, it’s not happening for him today’.

“And it might be happening for the last few months. But I’d forgive a player if he’s having a tough time, but he’s also out of position.

“My frustration was with the players around him. I was like, f*cking help him out.

“Help him, Johnny, you are a centre-half. Your full-backs, even if you go, and I’ve been there before, you sit back, and you go, ‘Lads, we’re up against it… just sit in’. I played centre-half, and I tell you, that was rough.”
