Roy Keane says win vs Coventry City puts more pressure on Erik ten Hag at Manchester United

Roy Keane says Coventry City win will increase the pressure on Manchester United coach, Erik ten Hag

Manchester United were barely able to get the job done against Coventry City during the semifinals of the FA Cup. The team bottled a 3-0 lead in the second half and the game was eventually decided through penalties.

Luckily, Erik ten Hag’s team was able to hit the mark and United advanced to the FA Cup finals. However, facing Man City after such a flimsy performance feels like setting yourself up for failure.

Former Red Devil Roy Keane also says that Man United winning against the Championship side will only increase the pressure on an already encumbered Erik ten Hag. Let’s have a look at what he had to say about the situation. (h/t BBC)

Harry Maguire was on the scoresheet for Manchester United against Coventry City.

“They’ll be celebrating getting to a cup final tonight but all this does is put more pressure on the manager.”

He recalled a Harry Maguire remark where the English defender said he saw character in the Manchester United squad. However, Keane doesn’t see their character and says he’s begging to almost not like the team anymore.

Watching United play has been frustrating this past month. They’ve bottled several leads and even when they win it is clear to see that the team is barely getting by. Their lack of urgency when they’re not in possession and their lax defence is hurting them.

Manchester United need to do something about their backline before they face Man City in the FA Cup finals.
