Former ​Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane has blasted the players of the Red Devils and ​Liverpool for their friendly behaviour towards each other before the match began.

The players from both sides were seen hugging and exchanging laughs with each other in the tunnel ahead of kick-off – something that irked Keane, who was notorious for his aggressive approach against opposition back in his days as a player.

"I'm disgusted with the players. You're going to war, they're hugging and kissing," Keane said, as per Goal.

He then went on to add that the players should not even be looking at the opponents as they are not going to play football on a pitch but are rather going at war against each other, which is why Keane doesn’t even endorse the players talking to each other after the match.

"Don't even look at the opposition. You're going into battle against them. The game hasn't changed that much, the players have changed. You're going to war against these players and they're hugging each other."

"Chat to them after the game, or don't even chat to them after the game."

In the end, the match finished in a ​1-1 draw which saw Marcus Rashford score for the Red Devils and Adam Lallana then equalise for the Reds, who are on top of the table with 25 points from 9 matches.
