United sit second on goal difference following the defeat to Man City on Monday, and with just 2 games to go it seems City may well be about to pick up their first league title since 1968.
Yet Keane feels United still have a chance, citing City’s tough trip to Newcastle and United’s infrastructure as the primary reasons, as he told the Irish Times:
“There’s a bit of doom and gloom around United, but if they do lose the league it won’t be down to that result – it’s the Everton game that will come back to haunt them.
“I was pretty upset the other night when they got beaten and I don’t like feeling that way because you have to try to move on.
“I’d never write them off. United are still the best club, still have the best manager and the best supporters. I still have loyalty to United, no matter what way I finished with the club, or whatever my relationship with the manager might be.”
