Roy Keane furious with Harry Maguire and David de Gea errors against Tottenham

June 19, 2020

A furious Roy Keane was left "flabbergasted" by Harry Maguire and David de Gea's errors for Steven Bergwijn's opening goal for Tottenham against Manchester United.

Bergwijn put Spurs ahead midway through the first half at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, dribbling easily away from Maguire and dispatching a low, central shot which De Gea was unable to keep out.

Sky Sports pundit Keane slammed Maguire for getting beaten so easily but reserved his strongest criticism for De Gea, saying he's "sick to death" of the "overrated Manchester United goalkeeper".

"I'm shocked at that goal," the former United captain said on Sky Sports. "I've watched a lot of football over the years, but to give that away, I'm fuming.

"I can't believe [Luke] Shaw heads the ball up and then runs forward, I'm staggered at Maguire, staggered that an international player can get done like this, and I'm sick to death of this goalkeeper.

"This is an established international goalkeeper. I'm flabbergasted. There's got to be something going on at half-time. If I was Ole, make some changes, get some lads off the pitch, some of them are going through the motions at the moment.

"Spurs have been okay, they've been compact. But Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn't let them on the bus after the match, let them get a taxi back to Manchester.

"These are established international players. I know we've got to analyse the game, but you do your job.

"We're trying to get in the top four, not winning leagues - just the top four! God forbid about winning trophies. It's shocking. I am disgusted with it.

"Maguire, De Gea, you should hang your heads in shame. Representing Manchester United, letting people run past you. Get close to them!

"De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I've seen in a long, long time. Tottenham had some bits of quality, but I'd have saved that [Heung-Min] Son shot. That's not a great save, it's middle of the goal, it's his job."
