Man Utd legend Roy Keane 'hopes Cristiano Ronaldo isn't watching' after slamming first-half showing against Wolves

ROY KEANE blasted Manchester United for their 'really poor' first half against Wolves and hoped Cristiano Ronaldo 'wasn't watching'.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were extremely lucky to head into the interval at 0-0 after a battering by the home side.

United handed a debut to £42million signing from Real Madrid Raphael Varane alongside Harry Maguire at centre-half.

And he was instantly thrown into the fire – as Wolves attackers dragged the visiting defence all over the place – without finding the back of the net.

Trincao, Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore terrorised the visitors' backline but could not find that elusive opener.

Sky Sports pundits Keane and Souness were scathing in their assessment of the Red Devils' first-half showing.

Keane said: "Their overall play, their body language, they just look lacklustre.

"There is no energy to their play. My only worry is that Ronaldo is watching, it's really poor.


"They need a good old rollicking, they need to pull their fingers out."

Ronaldo completed a sensational return to Old Trafford after United agreed to pay Juventus £21.3m.

He is believed to be earning more than £500,000-a-week.

Former United manager Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly played a big role in Ronaldo's stunning return, contacting the player personally on Friday morning.

And Souness added: "United are hanging on. It's been very difficult.

"They will be thinking weather the storm. They can't keep going like this."
