Furious Keane hits out at Maguire and ‘overrated’ De Gea

Maguire De Gea

Roy Keane was left “flabbergasted” by Harry Maguire and David de Gea’s mistakes that led to Steven Bergwijn’s opening goal for Tottenham against Manchester United.

Bergwijn put Spurs ahead in the first half, dribbling easily away from Harry Maguire and hitting a low, central shot which De Gea was unable to save.

Keane blasted Maguire for getting beaten so easily by Bergwijn but reserved the huge 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 player 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.”

It is not the first time Keane has been critical of the Spaniard keeper. After Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton in March, he accused De Gea of arrogance after his clearance struck Dominic Calvert-Lewin and bounced straight into the net.

“These are established international players,” added Keane. “I know we’ve got to analyse the game, but you do your job.

“We’re trying to get in the top four, not win 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.”
