Manchester United legend Roy Keane blasted Michael Carrick for his statement after the 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

United had gone ahead five minutes after the restart, following a mistake made by Jorginho which Jadon Sancho capitalised on.

Barely 20 minutes later, Jorginho made amends by scoring from the spot to make it 1-1. Chelsea missed quite a number of chances, and the game ended 1-1.

Speaking after the game, United’s caretaker manager Michael Carrick claimed that his side should have won the game and Chelsea’s penalty shouldn’t have been given.

Reacting to what Carrick said, Manchester United legend Roy Keane totally disagreed with the statement made by the former midfielder.

Responding to Carrick’s comments, Manchester United legend Keane said: “I disagree with everything he said in that interview. Everything he said.

“He’s talking about a plan, he’s talking about the penalty. Of course it’s a penalty. We’ve all looked at it and it’s a penalty.

“He’s talking about effort and he’s proud of them. He’s been working with them for months under Ole. All of a sudden he’s proud of them?

“Why aren’t they making an effort in the other games? He’s praising players for doing their jobs. It’s ridiculous.”
