Man Utd legend Keane: Youngsters just not good enough

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has slammed his old club after their shock Champions League exit.

Keane was typically unimpressed.

"I think (going out) reflects what United have done in truth, they haven't scored enough goals and they haven't beaten Basel or Benfica," said the controversial Irishman.

"People have talked about the young players - you've had (Phil) Jones, (Chris) Smalling, (Ashley) Young coming in, everybody building them up but they've got a lot to do, it's a reality check for some.

"I'd be getting hold of some of those lads, saying 'you'd better buck up your ideas'.

"I think their best player tonight was Ryan Giggs, that sums it up - he 37 or 38, you can't be depending on him.

"United got what they deserved tonight."
