Roy Keane’s Fierce Critique: Suggests Martial Should Play in Lower Divisions.

Amidst Pitch and Off-field Challenges, Intense Scrutiny Falls on Players, Particularly Forward Martial

Manchester United Icon Keane Joins the Conversation, Remarks on Sky Sports: ‘Martial scores a goal every 14 years, so we forgive him.

‘But let me tell you when at Newcastle under pressure, we get that ball into you, you better get hold of that ball to get us up the pitch and a bit of breathing space.

‘He’s touching balls off and gives the ball away cheaply. You may as well go down the leagues.

Man United have been trying to get rid of him a few years ago. You judge Man United on what they do in the big matches.

If you can’t deal with that, maybe you’re not a Man United player.’

Keane then went onto criticise the defence saying ‘they seem like a load of strangers’, before also taking aim at Marcus Rashford.

The forward was earlier slated by Jamie Carragher, who even negatively compared him to Martial, with Keane adding:

‘[Rashford] is a local lad, he’s got the mega deal and that is all well and good.

‘I need a bit more, you run forward no problem but you have to run back. Cover yards.

‘He’s 26 now, he’s not a child anymore. He’s got to set the example. He’s got to lead by example, is he on his own? Absolutely not.

‘He’s one of the experienced players in that dressing room and if he’s not setting the example, not good.’
