Keane slams Man United’s ‘jobs for the boys’ attitude to recruitment

Carrick, who has taken charge of United’s last two matches following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, was full of praise for his players as it finished 1-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Keane was furious with Carrick’s comments, and the fact so many of Solskjaer’s backroom staff are still at the club.

The Sky pundit suggested United’s problems are largely down to recruiting people who simply have links to the club.

“Some of the staff have to be held accountable,” Keane said.

“They weren’t just with Ole, they were with Mourinho before that. Are they going to stay on with the new manager?

“I get the impression at Man United the last few years that some of the backroom staff and people upstairs, there’s an element of ‘jobs for the boys’.

“Wink, wink, look after each other, know the right people. That’s why they are eighth in the league.

“We hope it’s not because you know somebody, or you’ve got a certain agent. We hope the right people come in and get the right people for the job. Not because somebody is a decent guy.

“If you want loyalty go and get yourself a dog. You’ve got to get yourself people who are good at their jobs. There’s a bit of a pals act going on at Man United, without a doubt.”

In his post-match interview, Carrick claimed Chelsea were lucky to be awarded a penalty, and also hit back at the criticism United have faced in recent days for their pressing in matches.
