Community Shield 2021: Roy Keane Blames Man City Player for Defeat to Leicester

 

Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, has blamed Manchester City defender, Nathan Ake, for their 1-0 defeat to Leicester City in the Community Shield.

Ake mis-controlled the ball, before Kelechi Iheanacho nipped in and he was then fouled by the Dutch defender.

Iheanacho scored the penalty with two minutes left to seal a famous win.

Keane feels City boss, Pep Guardiola will not have viewed the mistake favourably and thinks the moment would have confirmed Ake’s spot as City’s fourth-choice centre-back.

“It’s a definite penalty. Ake is another one of these defenders who gets bored.

“He just switches off for a split second. Credit to Iheanacho, we talk about strikers putting the ball in the net but closing people down, winning the penalty. The keeper got his hand to it but just too much power.

“When you make mistakes like that, it just confirms what the manager is thinking of you,” Keane said on ITV.
