Roy Keane criticised Harry Maguire and David de Gea for their performance against Spurs

Azerbaijan have made the 48-year-old their first choice to lead them in the Nations League.

The nation have been promoted to Group C and have a chance of qualifying from that as they try to improve their reputation.

Azerbaijan are pushing for an answer in the next two days as their search for Nikola Jurcevic’s successor accelerates.

Keane is known to be hot-headed as he demonstrated on Sky Sports after David de Gea made an error for Manchester United against Tottenham in his first game since the restart.

‘I’m shocked at that goal, I’ve watched a lot of football over the years but I’m fuming there,’ said Keane. 

‘I can’t believe Shaw heading the ball up in the air. I’m staggered at Maguire. I’m sick to death of this goalkeeper. 

‘I would be fighting him at half time, I would be swinging punches. This is an established international goalkeeper.’
