ROY KEANE clashed with pal and fellow pundit Micah Richards over Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek.
The Dutchman got some rare minutes in yesterday’s 2-0 home defeat to rivals Man City.
And he managed to get the biggest cheer of the afternoon from the home crowd as he came on to try and change United’s fortunes.
After the game, ex-City right-back Richards said Van De Beek should be given more of a chance at the club.
United legend Keane – already grouchy due to the result – snapped back, saying: “Are you saying he’s the answer [to United’s problems]?”
Richards continued to plead his case but the Irishman shut him down again.
Keane continued: “He played in the last season and he was very average. £40million is a drop in the ocean [transfer fee]. Jack Grealish was on the bench today he’s £100m!”
Graeme Souness could only watch from the sidelines as the pair went back and forth.

It wasn’t the only time tensions flared in Saturday’s broadcast.
Keane went berserk at the lack of fight his old club showed in another derby on home soil.
And the former captain picked on Fred in particular, saying he’s not good enough to be playing for United.
Keane said he’d ‘grab’ boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and quiz him on why he’s playing the Brazilian.
He fumed: “If Ole walked in here now I’d grab him and say why are you playing Fred?”
Voices were also raised over right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s role in conceding the second goal.
Souness felt the Englishman should’ve closed the cross down, whereas Richards – although share the same point – defended the right-back saying he can’t do two people’s job.
