ROY KEANE has criticized Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka – asserting that he is not good enough for the Red Devils… or his old team at Crystal Palace.
Wan-Bissaka joined United from the Eagles in June 2019 for a whopping £50m fee, although he hasn’t fully displayed the form that promoted the club to break the bank for his services.
United legend Kane believes the 23-year-old has shown no sign of his fitness to wear the shirt.
During an appearance on Sky Sports, the Irishman said: “Wan-Bissaka, I don’t even think the Palace will bring him back!
“He’s not good enough for Manchester United. No sense of the ball and decision making.
“But what Manchester United has always had over the years are players with character and character – I don’t see him with this group.”
Wan-Bissaka shone in a more advanced role in United’s 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday night.
United fans were quick to point out Kane’s pre-match criticism after his impressive performance.

“Does the palace bring him back now?”
Another said, “WAN-BISSAKA took ROY KEANE’s statement very seriously!!”

Another commented, “Wan-Bissaka shut down Roy Keane in 9 minutes.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was pleased with the team’s performance, saying: “The boys were really good, they worked really hard.
“It should be a football joke, that’s how it should be.
“Since Tuesday morning when we came, we had a plan with the coaches.

“We sat down with the players, and made sure we all subscribe to this plan.
“It’s a little different approach when you’re away from home, we’ve had a tough week and they really touched it and they worked really hard to get that result.”
Wan-Bissaka and his United teammates will return to action on Tuesday, as they travel to Italy to face Atalanta in their fourth Champions League Group F match.
