The ITV pundit believes that the team needs not one, but two new centre-backs after the damaging loss. The Red Devils went a goal up against the Eredivisie champions thanks to Memphis Depay, but were unable to take any more of their chances and paid for it.
“You are on about the money United have invested,” said Keane, “I think going forward they will be fine. In midfield they are not too bad but I think they are crying out for a centre-half – definitely one, possibly two.
“It was a poor result and performance. They gave away bad goals and certainly had chances to get something from the game. Overall it was a disappointing night for United, with the bad injury. I still think United are all over the place.”
The defeat means that United may have a tough road ahead of them if they want to finish first in their Champions League group. PSV, Wolfsburg, and CSKA Moscow will be difficult opposition for them, especially if they continue to play as they did as the Philips Stadion.
