Roy Keane: I wouldn't watch Liverpool if they were playing in my back garden
Roy Keane has blasted Liverpool’s style of play after their 3-0 Champions League win over Maribor, saying he wouldn’t watch them ‘even if they were playing in his back garden’.
The former Manchester United captain believes Jurgen Klopp’s men will not get close to winning anything at the end of the season, despite goals from Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge rounding off a second straight 3-0 win at Anfield, following Saturday’s victory over Huddersfield.
Liverpool now need just one win from their remaining two group games to progress to the knockout stages, but Keane, the Republic of Ireland assistant manager, remains unconvinced.
"It's hard to figure out Liverpool at the moment," he told ITV .
"It's hard to get excited about them. To me, they are going nowhere fast.
"They're neat and tidy, but defensively... come the end of the season when the prizes are being given out, Liverpool will be nowhere near them.
" If Liverpool were playing out in my back garden, I wouldn't watch them. They're just drifting. Drifting nowhere."
