Roy Keane labels fellow pundits ‘babies’ for their comments after Man Utd’s FA Cup win over Coventry

Roy Keane labelled his fellow pundits ‘babies’ after Manchester United’s win over Coventry City in the FA Cup.

On Sunday, United survived a huge scare at Wembley as they beat Championship side Coventry to reach the FA Cup final.

Erik ten Hag’s men raced to a 3-0 lead thanks to goals by Scott McTominay, Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes.

Ellis Simms gave Coventry hope in the 71st minute as he netted to make it 3-1.

Eight minutes later, Callum O’Hare brought the tie back to life as his deflected shot looped over Andre Onana. With seconds remaining, Coventry were given a penalty after Aaron Wan-Bissaka was adjudged to have handled inside the box. Haji Wright then scored to level proceedings.

In the end, United sneaked through via a tense penalty shootout.

After the match, ex-United captain Keane branded fellow pundits Karen Carney and Ian Wright as babies for winding him up.

Kean said to the pair: “You were cheering for Coventry, I’ve never seen you cheer so much!”

As Wright and presenter Mark Pougatch burst into laughter, Carney said: “I just wanted a good game, I was trying to wind you up.”

To which Keane replied: “I’ve never seen somebody so happy in my life. Children… babies!”
