'He's an idiot, a car crash' - Roy Keane slams Kyle Walker for conceding penalty against Liverpool

Roy Keane has labelled Kyle Walker “an idiot” after the Manchester City defender gave away a penalty during Sunday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah converted the penalty to put Liverpool in front for his ninth goal of the season in all competitions, though City would level before the break through Gabriel Jesus in what was his first start since the opening day of the season.

Speaking in his role as a pundit on Sky Sports, Keane did not hold back in his assessment of Walker’s defending during the half-time break.

When asked how Mane had won the penalty, the former Manchester United captain said: “Because he’s up against an idiot.

“Kyle Walker, people tell me he is playing well but I don’t think so.

“I think this guy is 30 years of age, an international player, he’s a car crash, he keeps making these types of mistakes and rightly punished for it."

Former Manchester City defender Micah Richards, who was working as a pundit alongside Keane, leapt to the defence of the England international.

“He’s been in good form,” said Richards. “I think Roy is taking it a little bit overboard there, he’s been one of City’s best players.

"But hegambles there on Mane, he should have just waited. He gambled that he was going on the outside and before you know it, Mane was there and he took him down.”

City had a great chance to go in front against the champions when they won a penalty shortly before the break, with Joe Gomez penalised for handball as he attempted to block Kevin De Bruyne’s cross.

De Bruyne stepped up the take the resulting penalty but sentthe ball wide of the post.
