Roy Keane criticises Gareth Southgate for not consoling Harry Maguire

Roy Keane criticises Gareth Southgate for not consoling Harry Maguire. He was sent off after receiving two yellow cards against Denmark.

Roy Keane believes England boss Gareth Southgate missed a trick by not consoling Harry Maguire as he trudged off the pitch following his sending off against Denmark.

The Manchester United captain, who has endured a tough few months on and off the pitch, was given his marching orders for two yellow cards in the opening 31 minutes on Wednesday night. 

England went on to lose 1-0 at Wembley and former United captain Keane says Southgate could have shown a softer side as a devastated Maguire walked past him down the tunnel.

When questioned about Southgate not consoling Maguire, Keane told ITV: ‘I think sometimes he [Gareth] knows Harry has had a tough time on and off the pitch, a pat on the back would have helped him.

‘That would have settled him from Gareth.’

Keane also said that returning to an under-performing United side, following two defeats out of their first three Premier League games, won’t help Maguire’s form either.

‘The only down side is for Maguire, he’s going back to a team not full of confidence,’ Keane added.

‘I’ve been in situations before when I was in a situation with brilliant characters, I felt the dressing room was the best in the world. He’s not going to get that, in that back four.

‘I wouldn’t be anywhere near those lads – I don’t see them as leaders.’
