Lampard took over an Everton side that was placed 16th in the Premier League table and despite a ardent launch to his crusade in Merseyside, the former Chelsea master managed to keep the Toffees in the Premier League, finishing 16th last season.
“Also when the going got tough you’re looking at the bench and it was not great. For all the plutocrat United have spent they’re still well short. I suppose they’re certain for top four, perhaps win a mug, but in terms of contending for league titles there’s a way to go, ” said Keane.
He went on to say that United have made progress but said that they still haven’t moved on from players like Luke Shaw, Aaron Wan Bissaka and Scott Mc Tominay.
“United have made progress but at the end of the game, I am looking at( Luke) Shaw still at left- reverse- there are questions over him.( Aaron) Wan- Bissaka, Fred,( Scott) Mc Tominay- it’s like Manchester United have not moved on from the problems in the history. I am not condemning them as it was a tough game, give credit to Arsenal. It was a reality check, ” Keane added.
