Roy Keane on De Gea mistake: “I’d kill him. He takes way too long. What are you doing? These are huge moments for the top 4. It’s a bit of arrogance to it. I would’ve lynched him at half time.”
Roy Keane criticized De Gea for a mistake
Spanish international David de Gea would have been “lynched” by Roy Keane after the Manchester United goalkeeper’s gaff against Everton. The hosts presented an early ticket to Goodison Park when David’s attempt to clear ricocheted off Dominic Calvert-Lewin and into the net. It was the last in a series of increasingly high-profile mistakes from David, with the Spaniard’s long-term future at Old Trafford reportedly being called into question. Former United captain Roy swore at the full house in his assessment of De Gea and claimed that he would have had big problems in the dressing room if the Irishman participated. “If I were a player or a manager, I would have killed him,” Keane told reporters. “What is waiting for De Gea? It’s crazy.
Jordan Pickford is not a good goalkeeper
“He’s almost a bit of arrogance. I would have lynched him at half time. There’s no excuse.” Roy also didn’t pull a beat when it came to analyzing De Gea’s opposite number Jordan Pickford after he lost the equalizer halfway after shot of Bruno Fernandes. January signing Bruno continued the bright start of his United career, firing a low shot at a low angle that Pickford was unable to hit. However, Keane suggested that the English international do better and doubted that Pickford was able to play at an elite level. Roy added: “I don’t want to hear the ball move. Of course, it moves, someone kicked it!
“The bottom line with Pickford … I don’t need to see statistics. I know he is an unfortunate goalkeeper. Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher also doubted Pickford’s role in the United’s equalizer and believes England coach Gareth Southgate will be concerned about him Form No. 1. Given that Southgate has several goalkeeper options to consider at Euro 2020, Carragher feels that the England manager may have a big decision on hand. Carragher said: “Pickford must save it.” No coach will want to move his goalkeeper so close to the tournament, and Pickford was perfect for England. But this is troubling because he was far from the best this season.”
