The Manchester United midfielder came in for criticism from Roy Keane on ITV following United’s disastrous 2-0 defeat to Olympiacos last night, not, surprisingly enough, for his sub-standard individual display but for a post-match interview in which he answered questions about the team’s performance in a fairly bland manner that Keane thought was symptomatic of United on the night.
