Manchester United legend, Roy Keane has slammed midfielder Fred after his performance in the club’s 4-2 home defeat to Liverpool on Thursday.
Keane also questioned why manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to persevere with the Brazilian despite his ‘lazy’ attitude.
The Brazilian endured a torrid evening as Manchester United fell to a 4-2 defeat at home to their arch-rivals.
He struggled to keep possession of the ball and it was one of his wayward passes that resulted in Liverpool’s third goal early on in the second-half.
Solskjaer replaced him shortly after the goal and former United captain Keane was not happy with his ‘lazy’ and ‘sloppy’ performance.
“I know Ole perseveres with Fred but I can’t see it,” Keane told Sky Sports.
“How they think Fred is going to get United back to winning titles I don’t know. I know he [Solskjaer] dragged him off but even so it was sloppy, it was lazy. It is school boy stuff.
“[Harry] Maguire is a loss but these are school boy errors. Fred is under no pressure there and gives it away. Shaw is an experienced international player.
“We are building the goalkeeper [Dean Henderson] up to say is he going to be the future no1 for United and they come up short.
“Maguire is a loss but they are school boy errors, it has nothing to do with losing Maguire.
“I think the fact they took Fred off was a bigger help.”
