Roy Keane loses his temper in furious rant as he calls for De Gea to be axed(VIDEO)

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Roy Keane says keeper David De Gea should be SACKED for not saving Steven Bergwijn’s opening goal.

The Tottenham winger danced around some feeble challenges from United’s defenders before slamming home.

But De Gea may feel he could have done better with the ball going straight through him, while Bergwijn went past Harry Maguire with ease.

And former United captain Keane pulled no punches as he gave his thoughts to Sky Sports at half-time.

The 48-year-old said: “It’s a massive defensive error – three people involved and De Gea can do much better.

“I’m shocked by that goal. I’ve watched a lot of football and to give away that goal I’m fuming.

“I’m staggered at Maguire and I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper.

“I would be fighting him at half-time, I would be swinging punches at that guy. I am flabbergasted.

“Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn’t even let them on the bus after the match. Get a taxi back to Manchester.

“These are established international players. Do your job. We’re not on about winning league, just getting into the top four! Shocking. I am disgusted.

“Maguire and De Gea should hang their heads in shame. De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a long, long time.”

Others were left of the opinion that it was a mistake letting Dean Henderson stay on loan at Sheffield United.

And some think he will oust De Gea between the sticks next season.

United captain Maguire also came in for a bit of criticism for his slack defending.

Eoin McDevitt wrote: “Harry Maguire respectfully maintaining two metres social distance there.”

Warren Ward was left bemused with the England man’s “lack of pace”.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5Live, former Middlesbrough and Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer also thinks De Gea should have done better.

He said: “De Gea has to save it, you would expect a goalkeeper of his quality to save it.

“It was a really hard hit strike from Steven Bergwijn, but I would expect a keeper of his quality to save it, to get body and hands behind it.

“I think he was caught in two minds whether to save it with hands or fist it away.”

Just minutes later De Gea managed to regain his focus to pull off a stunning save to deny Heung-min Son putting Spurs 2-0 up.
