    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has actually protected David De Gea for his error in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham on Friday night.

    Steven Bergwijn opened the scoring in the very first half with an outstanding solo objective, although his well-struck shot was directly at De Gea.

    But United equalised in the 2nd half through Bruno Fernandes’ charge to make a point in north London.

    Keane knocked De Gea at half-time, declaring that he would have been ‘swinging punches’ at the Spaniard in the dressing space for his mistake.

    ‘I’m fed up with him,’ stated Keane. ‘De Gea is the most overrated goalkeeper I’ve seen in a very long time.’

    When inquired about De Gea’s mistake after the video game, Solskjaer responded: ‘The kid struck it actually well. The ball relocations.

    ‘Roy was a fantasic midfielder, he’s a buddy of mine and I’m not exactly sure he would’ve stopped it either. But that’s not the point.

    ‘David is a bit disappointed with it, obviously. But if you see it the ball was moving through the air.’

    However, Keane buffooned Solskjaer’s reason in the Sky Sports studio.

    ‘There was no need for Ole to throw anybody under the bus tonight,’ stated the previous United captain.

    ‘I’m constantly interested when individuals state the ball moved. If you kick the ball it’s going to move.

    ‘But he’ll understand, we’re speaking about senior gamers. They will understand it was an error.’
