United Legend Backs United “To Do The Business”
Roy Keane has been impressed with the new faces around Manchester United and believes they are still the team to beat.
United have brought in David de Gea, Phil Jones, Ashley Young and have Danny Welbeck returning from a loan stint at Sunderland. Keane dismisses claims the team has weaken with the departures of Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Edwin van der Sar. He told The Sun:
“United have bought well. People talk about losing experience and I appreciate that Van der Sar, Neville and Scholes have all retired.
“But they have good young players coming through — and Wayne Rooney can play better than he did last season.
“When you look at the players they have left behind, they have Vidic, Rio, Darren Fletcher — these are all international players. And Giggsy is still there, too.
“United don’t let players go unless they know they have players coming through to replace them. Ashley Young and Phil Jones are good players, Chris Smalling is coming through and Danny Welbeck is a good player coming back after being on loan at Sunderland last season.
“And when the older lads come to the end in four or five years, you’ll have the likes of Jones and Smalling to step in with five or six years experience behind them.
“It’s like a machine. You can talk all you like about other teams getting stronger but, for me, United have got stronger as well.
“They’re going to do the business. Of all the teams, if one has the balance right I believe it’s United.”
