Keane, a former United player, now contends the Manchester-based club have every reason to panic - thanks to their disappointing start to the season.

He said told Sky Sports as cited by Metro UK.

"I never thought for one minute they’ll be challenging Liverpool and Man City but the way they’ve started this, the top four even seems out of reach.
"And at this early stage sometimes you say, ‘there’s no need to panic’, but the results and the performances suggest they should be panicking because it’s not been good enough."

Keane further noted the players are partly to blame for the poor run of results, suggesting they could earn Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the sack.
