Manchester United legend Roy Keane has taken a swipe at Newcastle United which comes no later after he lauded manager Steve Bruce.
Keane spoke highly of Bruce after the Magpies' 2-1 victory against Everton at the weekend and affirmed that he believes in his former teammate's abilities but blamed the club for not affording him the opportunity to sign quality players.
“There was no doubt in my mind when Brucie got the job he was going to do a good job,” Keane said as quoted by Shields Gazette.
“He’s vastly experienced. I know he’s been criticised for (Newcastle) not being very exciting to watch, but I don’t think they have the players for it.
"Newcastle haven’t been exciting for years, and even when they were exciting they never won anything, so I don’t know why everyone gets too worried about that.
“I think they’ll certainly be in and around mid-table, and that’s down to Bruce. I don’t think they will be exciting to watch. I don’t think that will change quickly.”
