Roy Keane slams David De Gea as ‘like he’s had a few drinks’ for embarrassing Man United error


Roy Keane remarked that David De Gea looked like he had “had a few drinks” when his error allowed Everton to score in their FA Cup tie with Manchester United.

The Red Devils were a goal up on Friday night when Neal Maupay’s cross from the right squirmed through the goalkeeper’s legs and allowed Conor Coady to level the scores.

United won their third-round tie nonetheless after Coady’s own goal after the break and Marcus Rashford’s late penalty.

But Keane was left baffled by De Gea’s “shocking mistake”.

“It’s a shocking mistake from an international goalkeeper,” he tells ITV.

“Everton have shown a bit of fight, turned it into a cup tie, but De Gea there is like Carry On Football. Looks as if he’s almost had a few drinks! Shocking mistake.

“It’s almost as if the keeper’s been sent off and an outfield player has gone in goal, and he doesn’t now what to do. A horrendous mistake and it gives a big lift to Everton.”
