Former Manchester United midfielder turned footballing pundit Roy Keane, has laid into Liverpool and England captain Jordan Henderson following Gareth Southgate’s decision to include him in this summer’s Euros squad.
The Three Lions were back in action on Sunday when they faced off in their final pre-tournament friendly against Romania.
Henderson has been out through injury for the latter parts of the most recent 2020-21 domestic campaign, however, in a bid to return to full fitness in time for this summer’s Euros, the 30-year-old has been named in Southgate’s final 23-man squad.
Although not included in the manager’s starting line-up against Romania, Henderson was introduced just after the break.
The English skipper’s evening didn’t go too well after he stepped up and missed a spot-kick.
However, after going on to eventually win the game 1-0, Keane, who spoke to ITV, after the match criticised Southgate’s decision to include the Liverpool man in the team.
Roy Keane on Jordan Henderson… 😬
“Clearly Jordan’s not fit – I don’t think he should be involved… I’ve heard people say they want him around the place – for what? Does he do card tricks? Does he have a sing song? Does he do quizzes in the evenings?” pic.twitter.com/YhYaXxg8FX
