Man Utd great blasts Southgate following England’s most recent match at Euro 2024

Posted by

The legend of Manchester United, Roy Keane, has criticized England manager Gareth Southgate in the wake of Thursday’s Three Lions Euro 2024 draw against Denmark.

Keane maintained that by starting Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield against Denmark, Southgate took a major risk.

After extra time, the England vs. Denmark match resulted in a 1-1 draw.

“It’s not nice to be taken off the field in both of the games. According to Football 365, Keane stated, “I thought it was always a huge gamble to play a player who doesn’t play that position week in and week out for his club.”

“I am aware that some claim he drifts in there for Liverpool, but staying put once he drifts in and getting started are two entirely distinct things.

I’ve played midfield; it’s a physically demanding position that requires you to get distances, and he hasn’t performed well in either of the two games.

“It’s not all on him; you’d have to put this on Gareth,” he continued. Tossing a full-back into the middle of the park is a major risk and England was playing against two teams against whom you would have assumed the country would be at ease and possess the majority of the ball.
