Man Utd legend Keane: Chelsea just staging unity

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has continued his attack on Chelsea's players.

In his column for the Sunday Sun, Keane wrote: "For me, there has always been a falseness about the Chelsea squad.

"They seem at pains to show how together they are, but it all looks so staged.

"You do that in games, not before or after.

"Go back 4½ years, in the first match following Jose Mourinho's sacking, they were high five-ing and hugging before kick-off in an apparent display of unity. They lost 2-0 to Manchester United.

"In their first outing after Andre Villas-Boas was fired, their FA Cup replay against Birmingham City, they were flicking each other's ears in the warm-up.

"They won 2-0 - but you'd expect them to beat a Championship side.

"Let's see if they're flicking each other's ears after the second leg of the Champions League tie against Napoli on Wednesday.

"If they want to show team spirit do it by turning around a 3-1 deficit."
