World Cup qualifier: Roy Keane Names Outstanding, Fantastic Player in England Squad


Former Manchester United star, Roy Keane has identified Chelsea midfielder, Mason Mount as an ‘outstanding player’ in the England squad.

The former England international also branded as ‘idiots’ those who doubt the Chelsea midfielder.

Mount extended his excellent form at club level to his national team during the international break with England and now looks to have cemented his place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the European Championship this summer.

And the former Manchester United captain Keane believes Mount is now an integral part of the England set up.

“Well that is pretty important, that your manager likes you,” Keane told ITV.

“Doesn’t matter what people outside the game think, there are a lot of idiots out there.

“Ultimately, I think the players pick the team and he has performed well enough for every manager to say, ‘listen you are going to be in my starting line up’.

“Outstanding player. He wants to be an all-round midfielder.

“I never hear anything negative about him off the pitch, he seems a brilliant young kid, he has gone out on loan, he has done it the hard way. He is a fantastic player.”
