FA Cup: Coventry Made Man United Look Like Championship Team –Keane

Manchester United legend Roy Keane says his former side looked like a Championship side against Coventry despite progressing into the FA Cup final on Sunday.

United led the semi-final 3-0 but Coventry fought back to level the score and forced the game to extra-time.

Coventry went close to completing an epic comeback in extra-time when they hit the crossbar before having a goal disallowed by an ultra-tight VAR call in the 121st minute.

The game was eventually decided via penalty shootout with United triumphing 4-2.

“I don’t like what I see from this United team,” Sky Sports pundit Keane told ITV. “They are hard to like. They play in moments. We go on about leadership and character, but I don’t see any of this from this United group.

“My goodness, they rode their luck at the end. The substitutions, the goal gave Coventry belief and all of a sudden they looked like a Premier League team in extra-time and United looked like a Championship team.”

Erik ten Hag’s side will now face rivals and holders of the FA Cup Manchester City in the final.

The two Manchester clubs will be meeting in the final for the second year running after last season’s tie ended 2-1 to Pep Guardiola’s men.
