Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane criticized Jurgen Klopp’s team. ‘I liked the Liverpool game’ – what Klopp and Guardiola said.
After the main confrontation of the 23rd round of the English Premier League, in which Liverpool lost to Manchester City at “Anfield” (1: 4) and practically dropped out of the fight for the championship, Merseyside was criticized by many. Among them was former Manchester United captain Roy Keane, who believes the reigning champions’ success over the last two years has made them dizzy.
“Liverpool is a bad champion for me. One can say that this season is special, weird, coronavirus. Do not pay attention – you are the champion. You are Liverpool! Keep playing like this, and you will have to wait another 30 years for another title.
I think the success of the last two years has made them dizzy. After winning the championship, they could not land. When I became a champion myself, I had this attitude: “Can we still win?”. I have never heard any Merseyside player say, “We still want to win.” This is a key moment. After last year’s title, they are talking about getting into the top four.
Everybody tells me that Liverpool is a top club. If it is a big club to deal with failures, is that also part of the game? Look at Manchester City. It can be said that they lacked two best players today. “Liverpool also had some losses, but their best attackers were still on the pitch,” Keane said.
Jürgen Klopp’s team has 40 points after losing at home and is in the 4th position in the tournament table. With 50 points gained in 22 games, Manchester City leads the English Championship.
Roy Keane defended the honor of Manchester United from 1993-2005. The Irishman won the English championship 7 times with the “Red Devils”, and in 1999 he became the winner of the Champions League.
