“Erik ten Hag made a very big mistake with that signing. When they where about to sign him, I warned them to sign another player we will learn from. He can’t come and be starting every games”-Roy Keane says he’d be ‘fuming’ if he had to play with one Man Utd player after disappointing performance vs Wigan.

Roy Keane said he would be fuming if he had to play with one Manchester United player.United claimed a crucial FA Cup third-round victory over Wigan on Monday night as goals in either half from Diogo Dalot and Bruno Fernandes helped them secure a 2-0 victory.Having recorded only their third win in their last 10 matches, Erik ten Hag’s men will now travel to either League Two side Newport County or the National League’s Eastleigh in the fourth round.The Wigan victory was United’s first win in any competition since the end of November at Everton and ended a dismal run of five games on the road without a victory.

However, United legend Roy Keane was not happy with Rasmus Hojlund’s performance, when speaking on ITV at half-time.Hojlund has struggled for form since securing a £72million summer transfer from Atalanta, having netted just once in the Premier League.

Upon Hojlund wasting an opportunity to double United’s lead before the break, Keane insisted the Dane should have buried his chance.

You’re too kind,” Keane told ITV Sport, responding to Ian Wright’s sympathy for the forward. “I would be fuming with him.”We wanted United to show a part of their game tonight and they have in terms of missing chances and not being clinical – I want to see that side of United tonight. When your striker is missing chances, we can say unlucky all day, they are great opportunities.”Put the ball in the back of the net and stop messing around!”After the game, Ten Hag insisted that his team should have been more clinical against Wigan.

The Dutchman said: “The FA Cup is all about winning, it is knockout. You want to finish the job. That is what I said in the dressing room ‘job done’.”[We] definitely [should have scored more]. In the first-half, I think we created five or six very good chances. I think it was very good football. We should have taken more, but if you don’t score you have to stay focused and I think we did that tonight.”On why his side missed chances, Ten Hag added: “I don’t know. You can’t always say why you’ve missed chances. There were some good attacks and good chances, but we didn’t take them, but the way we created them was OK.”
