MOST COMMENTED

Roy Keane has launched another scathing attack on his former club Manchester United, accusing vice chairman Ed Woodward of failing to improve the squad, while telling defender Phil Jones to “toughen up.” The Republic of Ireland assistant also launched a defense of deposed former coach David Moyes, who was fired by the club last month.

Speaking as a pundit during ITV’s World Cup launch, Keane said: "He [Moyes] had one transfer window, and it's not always down to the manager when players don't come in. I think Ed Woodward needs to look at himself. He's got to get deals done.” Following Alex Ferguson’s retirement last year, Marouane Fellaini came in as United’s only signing during the summer, while Spaniard Juan Mata was its only signing during the January transfer window. The former United captain added: “He [Moyes] should have been given more time. I was happy with David Moyes.”

Keane also accused defenders Jones and Chris Smalling of failing to improve. “I've watched United live nine, 10 times this year and ... if anything I think they have gone backward.” He added that Jones in particular “needs to toughen up,” and that United should think about recruiting two defenders in the summer to replace them.
