Keane Slams 'Hugging' Man Utd & Liverpool Players


Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has slammed the club's players for their behaviour in the build-up to their clash against Liverpool.

Prior to kick-off at Old Trafford, Red Devils duo Andreas Pereira and Fred were both seen exchanging pleasantries with Reds forward and fellow Brazilian Roberto Firmino in the tunnel.

While a seemingly innocent offering between the countrymen, Keane was less than impressed by conduct that's in stark contrast to the far fiercer approach he took during his playing days.

"I'm disgusted with the players. You're going to war, they're hugging and kissing," Keane said on Sky Sports .

"Don't even look at the opposition. You're going into battle against them. The game hasn't changed that much, the players have changed. You're going to war against these players and they're hugging each other.

"Chat to them after the game, or don't even chat to them after the game."

Keane, who also called for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign Harry Kane , was backed up by former United manager Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho declared that the heated rivalry is special for fans and that players should be under no illusion as to how important it is."
