Roy Keane was ‘right all along’ in iconic Man Utd rant from 12 months ago

Manchester United fans have said that Roy Keane was "right all along" after footage of his iconic rant from 12 months ago resurfaced on social media.

The rant in question came following United's 6-1 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in October last year in which he predicted "ultimately these players will cost Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] his job".

Solskjaer's future as the Red Devils' manager is now in doubt after Sunday's 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool, which leaves the club seventh in the Premier League and eight points off the summit.

One fan had previously re-uploaded Keane's rant to Twitter with the caption: "So Roy Keane was right all along…" following last weekend's loss to Leicester City.

Keane, who was absent from the Super Sunday panel this weekend, made his iconic rant came live on Sky Sports last October as he explained: “I've been saying it for the last 12 months, year and a half.

“Their performance against Spurs was disgraceful. You all have bad days in football, but some of the players were a disgrace to the Man United badge.

“There are too many bluffers, and ultimately these players will cost Ole his job. The players he has got there, they threw the previous manager under the bus, and they will do the same to Ole.”

The defeat came in United's third match of last season and left them with just three points from their opening three matches and languishing in 16th position.

Solskjaer remained in charge and United eventually recovered to finish second in the table, 12 points behind champions Manchester City.

Sunday's defeat has left it unclear whether Solskjaer will complete a third full season in charge at Old Trafford but it is expected he will remain in charge for this weekend's trip to Spurs.

Speculation surrounding the United managerial position in recent days has seen a number of potential candidates linked with replacing Solskjaer in the home dugout at Old Trafford.

These include currently out of work duo Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, as well as Leicester manager Brandan Rodgers and Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
