Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has criticised his old club and their rivals Liverpool for setting their sights on ‘only finishing fourth’.
The race to qualify for the Champions League is likely to go down to the wire with just four points separating third-placed Liverpool and fifth-placed Manchester United.
Arsenal are a further five points behind, two points ahead of Everton, but Keane has admonished the sides who celebrate a mere top-four place.
“When I see clubs like Liverpool and Man United celebrating getting into the top four, I cringe at it, I really do,” Keane told RTÉ Sport.
“Any of these big clubs – do you think that Real Madrid and Barcelona would be celebrating getting fourth? Come on, get a grip.
“It is about getting your hands on a trophy.
“People talk about getting into the top four because of the financial rewards and it was great for teams like Leicester to qualify but for the big teams, Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal, celebrating fourth? I say shame on you.”
