Roy Keane has fired a warning to Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he will be ‘thrown under the bus’ by the players.
The club have made a poor start to the new campaign and are already under heavy pressure after their recent 6-1 defeat at home to Tottenham.
Solskjaer’s position has also been questioned with reports suggesting that United have already begun sounding out Mauricio Pochettino as a possible replacement for the Norwegian.
Keane, meanwhile, blamed United’s players for the sacking of Jose Mourinho nearly two years ago and believes Solskjaer will suffer the same fate.
The former Red devils captain also slammed the display of Solskjaer’s team against Jose Mourinho’s side at Old Trafford and even described the players ‘a disgrace to the badge’.

‘The performance against Spurs was disgraceful,’ Keane told ITV. ‘We’ve all be in football, we’ve had bad days but I thought it was a disgrace to the badge some of the players’ performance.
‘Too many bluffers. ‘Ultimately, I think it will cost Ole his job. ‘With the players he’s got there. I’ve said it before, they threw the previous manager [Mourinho] under the bus and they’ll do exactly the same to Ole.’
United will be looking to get their Premier League campaign back on track after the international break as they face Newcastle United on October 17.
