If you think Fred, McTominay and Matic will win Man Utd titles, you’re living in cuckoo land - Keane


Scott McTominay Man Utd 2020-21

Anyone who thinks Manchester United are capable of challenging for titles while Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Fred are their options in midfield are living in “cuckoo land”, says former captain Roy Keane.

Matic meanwhile is seen as a reliable back-up, making just five appearances in all competitions so far this campaign.

Keane, however, believes United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is being too patient with the trio as he feels they are simply not good enough if the club wants to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.

The former Republic of Ireland international believes Solskjaer should instead experiment with other more dynamic options, including summer signing Donny van de Beek.

The Netherlands international has made just three starts for United since his£35 million ($45m)summer switch from Ajax, none of those being in the Premier League.

“There’s nothing wrong with Man United winning a game 3-1, or 3-2, you’ve got to get on the front-foot," he told Sky Sports.

"Last year, Chelsea scored more goals than them, Leicester scored more goals than them. People talk about Fred and McTominay in midfield, they’ve had their chance, we’ve seen them.

"I don’t think they’re bad players, but they won’t get United back to winning league titles. Tim Cahill, fellow pundit on Sky makes a point there about Man United having great players, I don’t see it, I don’t see the great players.

"They have some very good players, but they need to show a bit more. Van de Beek has come into the club, and there’s nothing wrong with biding your time, but if you think Fred, McTominay and Matic in midfield will get Man United back to the heights of winning titles, then you’re living in cuckoo land.
