EPL: ‘I’m not convinced’ – Roy Keane reveals ‘biggest worry’ over Man Utd’s new signing


 

Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane has admitted that midfielder Christian Eriksen is a ‘very good’ player but won’t fix the club’s problems in midfield.

Eriksen made his Man United debut in Sunday’s Premier League 2-1 defeat to Brighton, having joined the club on a free transfer this summer.

The Denmark international signed a three-year contract at Old Trafford.

But Keane believes the Denmark international won’t get Man United back to challenging for major trophies.

Asked about Man United’s move for Eriksen, Keane told Sky Sports: “Look, I think he is a really good player.

“In the bigger picture, will he get Manchester United back competing for league titles? The answer is no.

“My biggest worry for players like Eriksen, the big problem for United over the last few years is that when they are out of possession, especially against the better teams, they are not great at getting back.

“That is not one of his strengths. He’s a really talented player, a very good player obviously, but I’m not convinced he’s the answer.”
