Roy Keane tells Eriksen he ‘still hasn’t forgiven him’ after Man Utd masterclass

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen got a first hand insight into Roy Keane's grudge holding capabilities.

Eriksen showed all of his quality and talent in United’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford. The Dane was named man of the match after a truly mesmerising display at the heart of the United midfield.

Unfortunately, the former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder’s performance against the north Londoners, was not enough to heal one of Keane’s greatest woundings – Denmark’s 5-1 victory over Ireland in the 2017 World Cup Play-Offs. .

Ireland thought they were on course for the 2018 World Cup when Shane Duffy opened the scoring after six minutes. Unfortunately, the Irish merely poked the Danes, who responded in furious fashion.

Eriksen helped himself to a sensational hattrick, while Andreas Christensen and Nicklas Bendtner also got themselves on the scoresheet. At the time, Keane was the assistant manager to Michael O’Neil and played a huge role in Ireland’s bid for World Cup qualification.

And Keane said he is yet to forgive Eriksen for his role in Ireland’s heartbreak. “I have no questions to ask you because I am still upset with you,” Keane said to Eriksen after the game. The midfield maestro rubbed further salt into Keane’s apparently still open wounds by giving him a faint insight into Denmark’s celebrations.

“It’s a good night out in Dublin,” Eriksen quickly responded to the Irishman. The Dane was an industrious and creative presence in Erik ten Hag’s improving Manchester United machine.

A debut goal from £82million summer signing Antony gave United the lead after 36 minutes. They were pegged back by a Bukayo Saka finish in the second half, but Marcus Rashford ripped the game away from Arsenal with two goals in nine minutes.

The win saw United overtake Chelsea and Liverpool and move into fifth place in the Premier League. That will surely give Keane a smile on his face, even if memories of that disappointing night in Dublin continue to linger.
