Roy Keane "Maybe Man Utd Is Too Big For Mourinho"

Recommended Posts

Quote

 

Mourinho used his post-match press conference to again complain about his side's crammed fixture list, and Keane raged that he was ‘sick to the death’ of the manager’s moans.

The Portuguese said United's run of games, which will see them play on Monday, Thursday and Sunday this week, proves the club have ‘lots of enemies’.

But Keane was enraged by the boss’ claims, with the ITV pundit saying: "I've never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage?

"It's just utter nonsense what he's talking about. He's manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet. The squad he's got, the players, and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.

"We were just looking at some of the cup draws they've had. They've had an easy ride in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws. The guy's talking absolute nonsense. I've never heard so much rubbish in my life.

Keane believes Mourinho’s seemingly constant moans about the club’s ‘enemies’ shows he can’t handle to pressure in the Old Trafford hotseat.

"Maybe the club's too big for him,” added the former United star.

“He can't deal with all these demands at the match, what matches? Man United reserves could have won that game tonight. I'm sick to death of him."

Defender Marcos Rojo also appeared to be running on empty and was seen eating a banana passed to him by Ashley Young in the second half in a bid to increase his energy levels.

But Keane believes that was all for show.

"He's talking about the player collapsing," Keane added. "That was easier than a training session - 11 v 11 on the training pitch, that was easier than that.

"And he's talking about players collapsing. What rubbish. I've seen players maybe get Jaffa Cakes passed onto the pitch, so I wasn't surprised a player was looking for some sort of food but I think they made a bigger drama than what it was.

"He's got other staff. One of the fitness coaches could have come on with that, the medical staff. He's passing it on to Ashley Young, he's passing it on. I think that was all staged, without a shadow of a doubt."

You can call him what you want but nine times out of ten he speaks the truth, I'd rather have someone like Roy Keane giving me football insight than drips like Michael Owen.

Off topic but his second autobiography is a brilliant read too.

I stopped listening to Keane while back to be honest. Bitter about his departure, he's had nothing positive to say about United since. He's also a complete failure at managerial level, spouting on about a coach that's succeeded at every club he's been to so far. He can bore off.

Well yeah there is that side to it...

He's absolutely bang on whether he was a failure as a manger or not!

Mourinho, for once in his fucking life, needs to just stop moaning on about anything and everything. 

If anyone should bore off it's that whining little slag.

The point being Keane was a whinging fuck as a manager, so he hasn't got a leg to stand on. Mourinho's a bit of an embarrassment but Keanes glass house is pretty much down to the frame.

Oh I agree, Keane was often seen on MOTD crying about something. 

All im saying is he's right what he's saying. Mourinho's constant moaning has now become past tiresome and as you say, quite frankly embarrassing for a club Uniteds size.

I've no doubt he's right. Just amusing coming from a bloke that would be saying exactly the same shite.

I do find Keane somewhat refreshing considering most of the time we have to listen to dullards across various platforms (Murphy, Owen, Hargreaves).

Keane simply just says how he feels and is very outspoken, opinionated. Can't fault him for that.

Ridiculous comment from Keane...  Man Utd are massive, but not bigger than Real Madrid and Inter are also massive as an institution.  Roy Keane's mouth is sometimes ruled by the soles of his feet.

But you can though. He used to cry when a reporter or pundit gave him shit. Then expects praise for doing it himself. Dislike him immensely in his later years.

I don't think he meant it literally xD 

His point was ..."shut the fuck up and get on with it".

I actually reckon he did mean it literally at the moment of saying it.  Roy Keane is visceral and that overrides his thought capabilities...  The thing I've always wanted to know is if he ends up reflecting either on an action (that one back in his football days) or on a comment.

What I was getting at is that it's very difficult to decipher what Roy Keane actually means and for me it's all lost in translation with him mate.

Pity he didn't do this for Manchester United or Ireland in the later years. Do as I say, not as I do. YouTube is full of his tantrums.

Keane is brilliant and says what is on his mind without holding back.

I couldn't stand him as a player but love him since retiring and getting into punditry.

It's nothing to do with size of club, Mourinho is the same everywhere he goes. It's certainly not too big, but his whining is very irritating, especially as Keane is right in saying they've had some favourable draws. That's his schtick though.

Mourinho has made himself and United abit of a victim for no real reason, they've a massive squad, paid big money for big players, they can have no complaints. But he knows how to play the game and has always tried to build a victim mentality to motivate his squad.

I like Keane but Mourinho is doing it on purpose to try and generate a 'World vs Man United' mentality.

Not a fan of Jose personally, find him a bit boring now, was funny on occasions. I also think he was out of order on Sunday when he ran down the tunnel without shaking hands with the Middlesbrough manager, but that's what he does.

100% this.

I'd also rather have Keano being honest about United (which he always is) than have one of the sycophant Fergie disciples kiss the club's arse for fear of damaging their chances of free match tickets and appearing on shite MUTV documentaries.

Roy Keane is always 100% honest and doesn't give a fuck who he upsets. A man after my own heart

Never said that, they're a match made in heaven really. If you don't support either of them, you hate them.

So why would he have to try and generate an 'us against them attitude' for when non-United fans already hate United?

He does it everywhere he goes to be fair! 

I don't think he does it on purpose, he's just like one of those kids that gets all defensive over everything because he thinks that everyone hates him. 

Honestly, I don't care if he wins trophies. I wouldn't want the cunt anywhere near Liverpool. The man is like a petulant child.

Oh he does. From the moment he is appointed, it has always been an us vs them mentality, which has brainwashed knobhead fans that glorify him.
