Roy Keane disagrees with Carrick’s claim after Chelsea 1-1 draw


Roy Keane disagreed with ‘everything’ Michael Carrick said after Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the Premier League.

Jorginho’s penalty earned Chelsea the draw at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, after the Italy Euro 2020 winner gifted Jadon Sancho his first Premier League goal with a mistake early into the second half.

Carrick was placed in temporary charge of United after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sacking last week and said he was ‘proud’ of the team after they held Chelsea to a draw.

The former England player also claimed Chelsea were fortunate to be given a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka fouled Thiago Silva inside the box.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the 1-1 draw, Carrick said: ‘I’m disappointed actually. When you are in front in a game like this to have it taken away is disappointing.

‘I’m proud of the players and the group all week. An a difficult situation we tried to make the best of it. But there is that little bitter feeling. We came to win the game. A little disappointed, I can’t lie.

‘I don’t think it was a penalty at all. They have had a lot of shots David had two saves which we knew before the game he would have to make one or two. Other than that I have felt quite comfortable in the game.

‘Of course we want to be better. I am not getting carried away but I thought we defended well. I cannot fault the boys one bit.

‘To come away disappointed and to feel like you have left something out there is a positive.’

Responding to Carrick’s comments, 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.’
