'If Liverpool were playing out in my back garden I wouldn't watch them' - Roy Keane

Keane is far from impressed with Jurgen Klopp’s side.

IRELAND ASSISTANT MANAGER Roy Keane criticised Liverpool last night following their 3-0 Champions League win over Maribor, declaring Jurgen Klopp’s side are “going nowhere fast.”

Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge all scored in a routine victory for the Anfield club, but Keane didn’t hold back on ITV’s coverage last night.

“It’s hard to figure out Liverpool at the moment,” the former Manchester United captain said.

“I think it’s hard to get excited about them. To me they’re 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.”

The Merseysiders are currently sixth in the Premier League, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City after just 10 games.

Liverpool need one win from their last two group games to make the knockout stages of the Champions League.

But Keane is not convinced Klopp’s mean are heading in the right direction, citing problems at the back and ”question marks over the goalkeeper.”

He added: “There’s not too much to say about Liverpool. I think if Liverpool were playing out in my back garden I wouldn’t watch them. They’re just drifting. Drifting nowhere.”
