World Cup qualifiers: ‘Big bully’ – Agbonlahor slams Roy Kean for calling Maguire ‘disgrace’


Former Aston Villa striker, Gabby Agbonlahor, has branded Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, as a ‘big bully’.

Agbonlahor said this while launching a staunch defence of Harry Maguire after Keane labelled the England centre-back as a ‘disgrace’, following The Three Lions’ World Cup qualifying 5-0 win over Albania on Friday night.

According to him, everyone sort of jumps on the bandwagon whenever Keane says something.

Keane had branded Maguire as a ‘disgrace and an embarrassment’ after the Manchester United captain appeared to send a message to his critics after scoring the opening goal of England’s World Cup qualifying win over Albania.

Maguire slid on his knees with his fingers to his ears after heading in the England opener.

Speaking on the development, Agbonlahor told talkSPORT, “I have seen the quotes and the video of it from Roy Keane and I think Roy Keane is being a big bully, there.

“I think he’s bullying him because Harry Maguire has been under a lot of pressure after some not very good performances for Manchester United.

“This was the next game available to prove that he’s a good centre-half.

“Yes, it’s Albania, but, still, we had a job to do.

“He scores, the excitement of scoring – you’re going to celebrate.

He added, “I thought his defending was very good and he scored a goal.

“Every time he does something now, it feels like everyone is against him.

“He’s English, he’s the captain of Manchester United. Yes, there’s pressure with that, but he’s probably our best centre-half.

“Let’s get behind him and not always trying to criticise him.

“For me, it’s bullying from Roy Keane. Everyone sort of jumps on the bandwagon whenever Roy Keane says something.”
