United scored a point against the league leaders, with Jadon Sancho giving the visitors the lead before Jorginho leveled things off for the London side.
Carrick praised his players’ efforts after the game, making them two unbeaten matches under the keeper, as he questioned the decision to award the penalty from which Jorginho equalized.
However, Keane was not on the same wavelength as the former midfielder, questioning Carrick’s comments given the role the keeper had previously played on the coaching staff of the former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“When you’re up front in a game like this it’s disappointing to take it out,” Carrick said after the game.
“I’m proud of the players and the squad all week. A difficult situation [and] we tried to make the most of it.
“But there is this little bitterness feeling. We came to win the game. A little disappointed, I can’t lie. “
Keane’s response was incredulous, with the Irishman initially disputing Carrick’s claim that Chelsea should not have received a penalty.
“I didn’t agree with everything he said in this interview. It’s clearly a penalty, ”he said of the incident, which saw Aaron Wan-Bissaka judged to have fouled Thiago Silva.
He then turned his attention to perceived pride, referring to Carrick’s role under Solskjaer.

“He talks about the efforts of the players he is proud of. He’s been working with the players for months, ”Keane continued.
“He was in the canoe with Ole. All of a sudden he’s proud of them and they have a plan. What about the other matches?
“We’ve seen all the stats that they’ve been the worst in the league to shut people down. Congratulate the players for doing their job. Mention the three midfielders [Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Fred]? »
Keane called Carrick’s comments “ridiculous,” given the role of the interim manager working with Solskjaer and Jose Mourinho before taking over.
“He was also sitting in the canoe with Ole and Mourinho. All of a sudden he’s proud of the players this week, ”Keane said.
“I think the game has changed, every situation is different and I wouldn’t be the type to get rid of all the staff, but they have to be held to account. They were with Mourinho before. “
He also alluded to former players in coaching positions at Old Trafford, saying: “I feel like Man United is an item for a job for boys. Wink, wink, watch over each other, know the right people and that’s why they’re 8th or 9th in the league.
« [The] the proof is in the pudding, hopefully whoever comes into the club makes the right decisions and not because you might know someone or because someone is a decent guy.
“Loyalty in the game, the idea of loyalty, go get you a dog [if you want loyalty]. I’m not sure they are finding the right people for the job and there is certainly a number of buddies going on at Man United. “
