Roy Keane does not agree with the view that his former club, Manchester United, have problems in their defense. According to the club legend, all lines in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team were in trouble.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad got a disappointing start, especially in the 2020/21 Premier League season.
In the first match against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford, they were even humiliated by a 1-3 score.
Then, when dealing with Brighton and Hove Albion, Manchester United did win a narrow 3-2 victory, but the victory was colored by luck because the third goal was scored through the penalty spot.
Naturally, the public would highlight Manchester United’s overall performance in these two matches. Conceded five goals in two games, making people think the United defense line is “insane”.
Roy Keane considers Manchester United to simply let the opposing team’s players create opportunities easily.
“I think they must be happy with the results they got against Brighton. I know that it is still the start of the season, but they have conceded a lot of goals in two games this season.”
“They let Palace and Brighton create a lot of chances. This is not a good sign, because too many opponents create too many chances.” said Keane to Sky Sports.
On the matter of dilapidated defense, Roy Keane agrees, but he feels that defense is not the only problem facing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, but in all sectors.
“The situation would be very different if they played Man City or Liverpool. But they should have done better against Palace or Brighton.”
“Everyone says that their defense was very bad at the start of the season. But I think the whole team they did not play well.” he said.
In fact, Manchester United have received suggestions to recruit a reliable center-back this summer.
But what they brought was a midfielder (Donny Van De Beek), even though the club already has a myriad of top midfielders from Paul Pogba to Bruno Fernandes.
Next, MU will again face Brighton and Hove Albion, the Carabao Cup party will take place on Thursday morning WIB tomorrow (01/10).
