'Forget about it' - Roy Keane's honest opinion of Liverpool's Champions League chances

Ireland’s assistant manager believes the big clubs will be ‘laughing at’ the Reds later on in the competition.

ROY KEANE SAYS Liverpool haven’t a hope of lifting the Champions League or the Premier League with their current team.

The former Manchester United midfielder was speaking on ITV last night after the Reds produced an unconvincing defensive display in their 2-2 draw with Sevilla.

Asked about their chances of silverware in the two biggest competitions on offer, Keane replied: ”That [defending] is the easiest part of football, yet Liverpool can’t seem to do it and that’s why it catches them out.

Win the league and the Champions League? For Liverpool? Forget about it.

“I think they’ve enough to get through the group, but later on in the stages with the Real Madrids and these boys, they will be laughing at Liverpool.”

The Ireland assistant boss also gave his opinion on news that Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio was ruled out of their Champions League opener due to an infected pimple, which arose from shaving his leg.

“Listen, that’s the modern player,” Keane added. “Maybe he’s into the cycling.

“If it is true then surely they could use a different excuse. Why put that out and embarrass the player like that?”
