Christian Eriksen is a ‘very good’ player but won’t fix Manchester United’s problems in midfield, according to former Old Trafford captain Roy Keane.

Eriksen made his United debut in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Brighton, having joined the club on a free transfer earlier in the summer.
The former Ajax, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Brentford star has signed a three-year contract at Old Trafford.
Keane is an admirer of ‘really talented’ Eriksen but insists the Denmark international won’t get United back to challenging for major trophies.
Keane was asked about United’s move for Eriksen before their Premier League opener and told Sky Sports: ‘Look, I think he’s a really good player.
‘In the bigger picture, will he get Manchester United back competing for league titles? The answer is no.
‘My biggest worry for players like Eriksen, the big problem for United over the last few years when they’re out of possession, especially against the better teams, they’re not great at getting back.
‘That’s not one of his strengths. He’s a really talented player, a very good player obviously, but I’m not convinced he’s the answer.’
