WATCH: Roy Keane 'sick to death' of Mourinho

2017-03-17 10:46

Cape Town - Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has ripped into Jose Mourinho's constant complaints over a congested fixture list saying "I'm sick to death of him".

Keane, speaking after the Red Devils' 1-0 second-leg win over Rostov said that he was growing tired of Mourinho's theatrics and constant complaints over the fixture list.

"I've never heard so much garbage in my life," Keane said in his post-match analysis. "It's just utter nonsense what he's talking about, he's manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world with the squad he has got, the players and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.

The Ireland assistant manager went on to question whether Mourinho was suited to being in charge at United and whether he was capable of handling the magnitude of the job.

"Maybe the club is too big for him and he can't deal with all these demands," Keane said.

"Man United reserves could have won that match, I'm sick to death of him.' he added.

Juan Mata scored the only goal as United recorded an underwhelming 1-0 victory over FC Rostov to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.

Mata struck 20 minutes from the end of a subdued game, completing a 2-1 aggregate win that sent United into the last eight of Europe's second-tier club competition for the first time since 1985.
