Fred, McTominay and Matic live in 'cuckoo land' – Keane

Anybody who assumes that Manchester United are worried about the titles while Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Fred as midfield are experiencing the atmosphere of “cuckoo land”, believes the previous captain Roy Keane.

McTominay and Fred have set about three out of United’s four competitions since their 6-1 beating in front of Tottenham last month and were matching up again for Sunday’s clash with Arsenal at Old Trafford.


Thereby, back-up Matic, has been present for only five comeptitions.


Keane thinks United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been too submissive with the trio  because he believes that they not as capabale as what they must be in order to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool.


The previous Republic of Ireland international claims that Solskjaer should experience other teams including summer signing Donny van de Beek.


“There’s nothing wrong with Man United winning a game 3-1, or 3-2, you’ve got to get on the front-foot," he told Sky Sports.

"Last year, Chelsea scored more goals than them, Leicester scored more goals than them. People talk about Fred and McTominay in midfield, they’ve had their chance, we’ve seen them.


"I don’t think they’re bad players, but they won’t get United back to winning league titles. Tim [Cahill, fellow pundit on Sky] makes a point there about Man United having great players, I don’t see it, I don’t see the great players.


"They won’t, I think they’re good players - I like them - but not to the next level, and that’s surely what United are looking for.”
