In response to Fernandes’ “bizarre” claim, Roy Keane says, “Don’t be such a baby!”
According to newly discovered footage, ROY KEANE delivered a scathing rebuke to Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes after the player defended his goal and assist record in the face of critics.
Keane, the sharp-tongued pundit, returns to screens today as Millwall face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup third round, live on ITV, at 12:45pm. He will be joined by Mark Pougatch and Ian Wright to discuss the south London derby.
Crystal Palace return to the Den for the first time since their promotion to the Premier League nine years ago, and Gary Rowett’s Championship side will be hoping to make the most of home advantage.
Despite the absence of club talisman Wilfried Zaha, fans’ favourites Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise could return to a young and exciting Palace attack.
Keane, who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks, will be watching the match with a critical eye.
Keane, a former Manchester United captain, is known for his scathing analysis of his former team.
The Irishman has chastised the players not only for their performances, but also for their demeanor while on Sky Sports duty.
However, United midfielder Fernandes retaliated against critics earlier this year, defending his record since joining the club in 2020.
“People are saying ‘Bruno is not playing well’ because nobody remembers the past,” Fernandes said ahead of the Manchester derby last March.
“They remember when I don’t play well against Chelsea, when I don’t play well against Crystal Palace, and they say, ‘Bruno is inconsistent, Bruno isn’t having a good moment, Bruno isn’t playing well, Bruno needs to improve.’
“I agree because we can always improve, but it makes me sad when people who know a lot about football say so many things I disagree with.”
“It’s depressing to see some of the things people are saying about the team, my teammates, and me.”
Keane was less than impressed when Sky Sports host Dave Jones showed him the fiery Fernandes interview.
He called Fernandes’ comments “bizarre” and told him to “stop acting like a baby.”
“It’s peculiar,” Keane said.
Wasn’t there a lot of nonsense there about a lot of statistics?
“Just do your job as a football player.”
“He mentions ex-players.”
