Manchester United legend Roy Keane has warned the current Old Trafford squad will throw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer "under the bus" - just as they did their former manager Jose Mourinho.

Speaking ahead of the Manchester derby between United and Manchester City, Keane offered Sky Sports a typically forthright assessment of his former club's current predicament.

Keane was highly critical of midfielder Paul Pogba, labelling the 26-year-old a "big problem" for United in a squad "full of bluffers".

Keane on Pogba

"The guy is a talented boy, but we're saying the same thing over and over again. The number of times we've seen him in games where he is not sprinting or running back. He's a big problem for United.

"Graeme (Souness) spoke earlier about needing good senior players at your football club. He's a senior player, played in big competitions and won big trophies. I don't think he leads by example, from what I see. I don't know what he's like on the training ground or when they're travelling, but from what I see. He mentioned body language and pride, but I don't see it in his performances. My eyes don't lie to me."

"I'm always intrigued by comments after games when they say, 'we'll be up for the next game'. You're supposed to be up for every game. It doesn't matter whether you're playing for Man United or Altrincham. You have to be up for every game of football.

"I don't fall for this carry on that there will be a brilliant reaction from this set of players. These are the same players that threw Mourinho under the bus and they will do exactly the same to Ole. Leopards don't change their spots. There are too many bluffers at this club to get United back to the very top.

"Even the point that we're chatting about Man United trying to finish fourth shows how the standards have changed both on and off the pitch."
