‘The lights are on but nobody’s home’ – Keane slams ‘lost’ Man Utd ‘kid’

Roy Keane claims Marcus Rashford “looks lost” at Man Utd while he also criticised “too many loose ends” at the Premier League club.

Rashford was left out the squad on Saturday as the Red Devils threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 against Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Bruno Fernandes’s brace put the visitors on course for victory at Villa Park, only for Jacob Ramsey to pull one back and substitute Phillipe Coutinho to seal a draw.

The substitution of Rashford in their FA Cup match against Aston Villa last weekend was greeted with sarcastic cheers from the Old Trafford crowd.

Man Utd interim boss Ralf Rangnick admitted that he couldn’t put his finger on Rashford’s poor form but vowed to stand by the England international.

And Keane thinks “there’s something amiss” about Rashford at the moment with the Man Utd forward looking “lost” on the pitch.

Keane said on Sky Sports: “What’s happened to Rashford? Man Utd have to get to the bottom of it, that’s part of the responsibility when you’re working with good, young players.

“He’s done amazing things over the last few years, amazing, on and off the pitch, but clearly there’s something amiss.

“I looked at him Monday night, the lights are on but there’s nobody home. The kid looks lost.

“Sometimes with young players it’s confidence. It might be anything on the football pitch, it might be stuff off the field.”

“What’s happened to Rashford? Man United need to get to the bottom of it, clearly there is something a miss, I was looking at him, lights are home but nobody is home. The kid looks lost.”

Man Utd, who currently sit in seventh position, have had a poor season so far with Rangnick failing to get improved performances out of the team after replacing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Keane added: “To me, there’s something missing at Manchester United, there’s too many loose ends.

“Are these young players – Sancho, Rashford and Greenwood – are they still looking at some of the senior players?

“You’re hoping the senior players are setting a good example. Maybe all of them aren’t and maybe some of these young players aren’t so quick to do a little bit extra afterwards, and these are all the fine details you have to improve on.

“If the culture isn’t right at Manchester United, in terms of the pace of training, the tempo, people’s attitudes, the way they speak to the staff, if that’s not right, you’re going to notice it.”
