Roy Keane blasts Bruno Fernandes decision to hand penalty to Rashford

The former Man United captain was unhappy with the team’s mindset

Roy Keane was unhappy with Bruno Fernandes’ decision to hand Marcus Rashford a penalty and he criticized manager Erik ten Hag for defending his player.

Fernandes was seen handing the ball to Rashford, who bagged only his second goal of the season to give the Red Devils a 2-0 lead at the time.

After the match ten Hag underlined the Portuguese leadership qualities, but Keane was far from impressed.

“He’s giving toffee out there to Bruno for passing on the ball for the penalty. Absolute bloody rubbish. Absolute rubbish coming out with that. Manchester United are sixth now – if you went back a few years, if you were sixth you’d be embarrassed.” Keane said.

“But obviously they seem happy with sixth. They have a long way to go. Manchester United have to be competing with the best teams. That’s including Liverpool, [Manchester] City, Arsenal.”
