"There are too many bluffers at this club to get United back to the very top"
"These are the same players that threw Mourinho under the bus and they will do exactly the same to Ole."
Roy Keane has offered some stinging criticism of the Manchester United squad.
Keane was a guest on Sky Sports coverage of the Manchester derby and wasted no time giving a damning assessment of his former team, who came into Wednesday's game following a 4-0 defeat to Everton.
The Irishman said that the United squad would throw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer "under the bus" just as they did to their former manager, Jose Mourinho. Keane said that the team contains "too many bluffers."
"I’m always intrigued by comments after games when they say ‘we’ll be up for the next game'," the former Man United captain said.
"You’re supposed to be up for every game. It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing for Man United or Altrincham. You have to be up for every game of football.
"I don’t fall for this carry on that they’ll be a brilliant reaction from this set of players. 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 this club to get United back to the very top.
"Even the point that we’re chatting about Man United trying to finish fourth shows how the standards have changed both on and off the pitch."

A few minutes before that, Keane said that Solskjaer, if it was possible, would have made 11 changes to his team from the defeat to Everton.
