Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane warned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season that his players would throw him under the bus as they did with Jose Mourinho.

Results have been grim at Old Trafford in recent weeks and rumours of Solskjaer getting the sack are making the rounds on social media. Accusing the players of not performing to their best, Keane predicted in October 2020 that the attitude of some of the squad members would spell the end for Solskjaer.

"I'm always intrigued when I hear players say 'we'll be up for the next game'. You're supposed to be up for every game," he said. "To me, it doesn't matter if you're playing for Man Utd or Altrincham. You've got to be up for every game of football.

"These are the same players that threw Mourinho under the bus - and they will do exactly the same to Ole. Leopards don't change their spots. There are too many bluffers at the club to get United back to the very top."

Keane's words have popped up on social media after United's 5-0 loss to Liverpool over the weekend, and fans think the former Red Devil could not have been more accurate.
