Roy Keane criticises reported Wolves target Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Reported Wolves target Aaron Wan-Bissaka came in for some criticism yesterday from Roy Keane on Sky Sports.

United needed to win to try and keep pace with the Gunners and Manchester City, who had beaten Wolves 3-0 earlier in the day.

But they they fell short, losing the thrilling contest 3-2.

It was a huge statement from Arsenal, who are very much looking the real deal.

Wan-Bissaka was starting his sixth Premier League game in a row, with Diogo Dalot still out injured.

He was up against the livewire Gabriel Martinelli, and the Brazilian gave him a pretty uncomfortable afternoon.

And after the game, Keane delivered a pretty damning verdict of Wan-Bissaka.

He said: “I don’t see that. I really don’t. He’s not great going forward or in possession so people say he’s a really good defender. I actually don’t think he’s that good a defender.

“I think we see that for the other goal as well. I looked at him over the last few years and I don’t see that big improvement. For a full-back which is such a huge position to play for Man United, I don’t see it.”

Prior to the game with Arsenal, Wan-Bissaka had actually been in really good form.

Ironically, he improved a lot since getting linked with Wolves.

According to the Express & Star, the 25-year-old was among a number of candidates Wolves were considering.

Crystal Palace are also thought to be keen.

It is unclear whether there is still interest.

Just recently, Nelson Semedo’s form has picked up for Wolves and so the need to strengthen there is not as strong as it was a few weeks ago.

A poor outing for Wan-Bissaka, but he’d still make a decent addition for Wolves despite Roy Keane criticism

It was not a good day at the office for Wan-Bissaka.

But the player’s form has been good in recent weeks, and so the assessment from Keane is perhaps slightly harsh.

It is no secret that Wan-Bissaka going forward is not particularly great.

But if Wolves were going to move for him then perhaps the idea should be to attack mainly down the left, with Hugo Bueno or Rayan Ait-Nouri bombing on.

Keane may not feel his defending is even that good. But arguably, it’s still better than both Semedo’s and Jonny Castro Otto’s.
