Roy Keane has warned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that his current Manchester United players will get him sacked.
And speaking after seeing his former side lose 1-0 to Arsenal, he insisted it will happen sooner rather than later.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second half penalty was enough for the Gunners, as they won at Old Trafford for the first time in 14 years.
The loss means United have been beaten in three of their first four Premier League home games this term.
It also means they are in the midst of their worst start to a campaign in seven years, with United currently down in 15th place in the table.
Duly, Keane was scathing in his assessment of Solskjaer’s side.
“I am really, really worried about Manchester United now,” said Keane, speaking on Sky Sports.
“Where do you want me to start? A lack of energy, of enthusiasm, and a real lack of quality. That really concerned me. No quality, no composure.
“Some of the performances were really poor. Have they turned a corner? It’s the longest corner ever. I am just not convinced by these players.
“I don’t see any leaders out there. There’s a real lack of quality. There’s a long way back for this club.
“I looked at [Marcus] Rashford closely today. His body language was shocking.
“Shrugging his shoulders when things didn’t go his way? You roll your sleeves up when you play for Manchester United.”
However, while it is the players who mainly drew the ire of the Irishman, it is Solskjaer who he has no doubts will be left to pay.
“We were almost building up this season as make-or-break for Ole, but at this moment in time it’s not looking good for him,” he added.
“I scratch my head at players who don’t have enthusiasm for a game of football.
“Sometimes you say ‘there’s no reason to panic’. But the results and performances suggest you should be panicking.
“I judge the players by their actions and I just don’t see it. I never looked at a manager expecting to motivate me, that comes from within.
“Ole will lose his job working with these players, as night follows day – that’s what is going to happen.”
