‘Not Good Enough’ – Roy Keane Slams Man Utd Players Over Man City’s FA Cup Final Goal

Must read

Roy Keane described Ilkay Gundogan’s record-breaking FA Cup final goal as ‘brilliant’ but says three Manchester United stars should have done more to prevent Manchester City’s early strike.

Man City captain Gundogan fired his side ahead with a stunning volley after just 13 seconds – the fastest FA Cup final goal in history.

Gundogan got the all-Manchester FA Cup final underway, passing the ball back to City goalkeeper Stefan Ortega.

A long punt from Manchester City’s second-choice goalkeeper found Erling Haaland and the ball eventually broke to Gundogan, who unleashed a sensational volley past David de Gea.

It was a dream start to the FA Cup final for Manchester City, who were last month crowned Premier League champions and are bidding to win a historic treble ahead of next week’s Champions League final.

Old Trafford legend Keane praised the ‘brilliant goal’ but was ‘really critical’ of Manchester United midfielders Casemiro, Fred and Christian Eriksen, who he said all ‘switched off’.

‘It’s a brilliant strike, a brilliant goal,’ Keane told ITV Football. ‘But defensively I think United were switched off.

‘I would be really critical of the three midfielders – Casemiro, Fred and Eriksen – they’re all in wrong position and they’ve all made wrong decisions 10 to 12 seconds into a game.

‘Not good enough from experienced players. They were really switched off, it’s poor from Manchester United.’

United are not only trying to block City’s treble bid but also win a second trophy of the season following their EFL Cup triumph at Wembley in February.

And Erik ten Hag’s side equalised before half-time through captain Bruno Fernandes after Jack Grealish was controversially penalised for handball.
