The Premier League champions were overturned in the Greek capital in the first leg of their round-of-32 clash, leaving David Moyes’s side with a huge task in the return leg in three weeks’ time if they wish to remain in Europe’s premier club competition, with the Red Devils now needing to overrturn a 2-0 deficit in Europe for the first time since 1984.

“I don’t think any of us predicted that,” said Keane, who was speaking as a pundit on ITV, after the full time whistle.

“We weren’t sure about Olympiacos, but give them credit, they were technically better than United

‘There are a number of players who haven’t showed enough quality and there is a  lack of confidence

“United need six top quality players with Vidic, Rio, Evra, Giggsy [all going], he needs to rebuild the club.

“Moyes will be shocked, he would expected good things with this squad, he’ll be shocked by lack of quality he’s working with.”
