Roy Keane has given Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho some stern advice and has told him to ignore his “so-called critics”.
Mourinho has come out with a number of comments in recent weeks about the fans and media following criticism of the way United are playing.
However, Keane thinks he needs to dismiss it and carry on with his job.
“My only concern about Mourinho is that he seems to be distracted by the so-called critics out there,” Keane told ITV.
“He is probably paid eight, nine or ten million pounds a year so focus on your own job. Rise above that. He should be better than that, but he seems to be easily upset.
“Shut up and get on with your job. You are getting very well paid for it.”
And Keane reckons part of the reason the Red Devils seem under so much pressure – despite being second in the Premier League – is because of the way Manchester City are currently playing.
“They are going along nicely and one of the problems in Manchester at the moment is United fans are looking at what City are doing, how they are playing and the goals they are getting, but United just have to keep their heads down and keep winning matches,” he added.
“If I was a player at United now, I’d be saying keep our heads down, let’s keep chipping away. The trophies are not handed out now. Let’s keep focused, keep winning and see what happens.”
