Roy Keane has slammed one comment from Erik ten Hag after Manchester United lost 3-1 against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The former United captain was on punditry duty for Sky Sports during the game, which saw The Reds open the scoring through a thunderous Marcus Rashford strike.

However, City’s dominance eventually overawed the United backline that worked tirelessly all game. Phil Foden scored two, with Erling Haaland adding a third in the final minutes of the game.

Erik ten Hag’s game-plan was always risky and his team would need to fully take advantage of their counter-attacks. Barring the super goal from Rashford, the final third execution was poor.

“I think it was a good performance overall,” the United boss told the BBC. “We went 1-0 up and we had our moments after it to score the second one.”

Following that, Keane was speaking on punditry about United’s chances for Champions League football next season.

The ex-midfielder stressed that the moments that Ten Hag was referring to are not enough for a club like United, with the amount of money invested into the squad.

“It’s going to be very difficult when you look at the whole season,” Keane told Sky Sports. “The manager there spoke about how they had their moments.

“This team seems to be all about moments and when you’ve invested that money, and the quality they have, you still think that they need a bit more than that.

“It’s fine sitting in against Man City and picking them off if you can, which they did well today, but it’s the game we’ve looked at over the last few months. You just don’t see that consistent performance.

“We keep saying about Man United, they’ve been digging results out, eventually that catches up with you. For Man United, in terms of the bigger picture, you need more.”
