Roy Keane has slammed Jose Mourinho’s fixture complaints as ‘nonsense’ and suggested Manchester United are ‘too big for him’.
United manager Mourinho raged over United’s schedule which sees them play three games this week after losing Paul Pogba and Daley Blind to injury in Thursday’s win over Rostov.
The Old Trafford club’s extended runs in the cup has left them in a situation that could involve 17 more matches before the season ends.
Mourinho spoke of United’s many enemies but Keane dismissed the Portuguese coach’s complaints, questioning how he ‘can’t deal with the demands’ of his job.
‘I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life. Why do we have to listen to that garbage?’ Keane said after watching Mourinho’s post-match interview on ITV.
‘It’s just utter nonsense what he’s talking about. He’s manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet. The squad he’s got, the players… and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.
‘We were just looking at some of the cup draws they’ve had. They’ve had an easy ride in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws.
‘The guy’s talking absolute nonsense. I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life.
‘Maybe the club’s too big for him. He can’t deal with all these demands at the match, what matches? Man United reserves could have won that game tonight.’
