Players get away with murder! - Keane blames United stars for Mourinho sacking

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer quote Manchester United

He believes the appointment of former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as caretaker manager will buoy spirits around Old Trafford.

Manchester United striker Alexis Sanchez has denied reports that he made a £20,000 bet with team mate Marcos Rojo on Jose Mourinho's sacking from Manchester United.

"I think the players get away with murder, the way they hide behind the manager", Keane told BBC Radio 5 live.

"You play with courage, go out there and express your skills".

"We have got 23, 24 players, they're all quality and they'll all get a chance now".

"That was nice to hear, and it was a nice feeling that day, but I'm a guy who closes each day and looks forward".

Solskjaer will hit the ground running at United, who will play five matches in 15 days beginning with Saturday's Premier League clash at Cardiff, where the former Norway worldwide spent nine months as a coach in 2014.

"I think that link between the academy and the first team is crucial, it's because we bring players and develop players in a certain way and then they know when they get to the first team this is how we want to play".

Like many Manchester United players, Shaw will be hoping for a fresh start under Solskjaer, starting in south Wales this weekend.

"Towards the last... ever since my injury in 2003 at least, I was making all the notes what he did at different, certain situations and of course I have already been in touch with him because there's no one to get better advice from".

"I have nothing to say". I had the best manager, to learn how he dealt with people.

Yet his third season was riddled with problems both on and off the pitch, including the breakdown of his relationship with record signing Paul Pogba, before United pulled the plug with the team sitting sixth in the league. I am one of them.

"Especially if Pochettino comes in, he wants his players to play football and play with confidence so he'll need a couple of centre-halves who can play football and can play out from the back". I'm good at controlling the emotion, so I won't be that emotional.

"I can't wait to help the team!"

Liverpool winger Xherdan Shaqiri has been humbled by the overwhelming reaction to his match winning contribution against Manchester United last week, but insists he will not let it go to his head.

It is, however, likely that he will slot straight back into the fold under a new coaching regime, with the Solskjaer era set to be opened away at Cardiff City on Saturday.
