Keane Points to Ten Hag After Derby Defeat

Manchester United’s performance against Manchester City has left club legend Roy Keane deeply concerned, particularly with manager Erik ten Hag’s record. United’s defeat at the Etihad, despite a brief lead thanks to Marcus Rashford, underscored a season of struggles under Ten Hag’s leadership.

City’s Dominance Leaves United Reeling

Phil Foden’s masterclass ensured a 3-1 victory for City, overshadowing Rashford’s early highlight. With United now having faced defeat 11 times this season, Keane highlighted the stark reality of the team’s situation, with the Red Devils’ shortcomings laid bare against the reigning champions.

Ten Hag’s Tumultuous Tenure

The Dutch manager has now seen his side lose as many as 11 matches in the Premier League, a statistic that only worsens when considering the previous seasons’ records. Keane, speaking on Sky Sports, did not hold back in his critique, drawing parallels between United’s performance and a boxer with nowhere to hide.

United’s Top-Four Hopes Fade

With the loss keeping United in sixth place and a significant 11 points adrift of fourth-placed Aston Villa, the prospects of Champions League qualification are dimming. Keane questioned the direction of the team and the capability of the manager to turn the tide.

Offensive Woes and Upcoming Challenges

Despite Rashford’s striking effort, United’s offensive display was lackluster, managing only three shots throughout the match. This inefficiency in front of goal raises concerns, especially as United prepare to host Everton and Sheffield United, where nothing less than six points will suffice for their ambitions.
