Manchester United legend Keane was not impressed with the display produced by Rose during England’s Euro 2020 qualifier against the Czech Republic on Friday evening.
The former Republic of Ireland international midfielder thought that the 29-year-old Spurs left-back was “shocking” for the Three Lions.
Keane said about Rose on ITV: "Rose's performance tonight, my goodness. Someone's got to get hold of that guy. He was shocking! Abysmal! I think he will be the same in another three or four years.”
England fans have responded to Keane’s scathing remarks on Rose on Twitter, and they seem to agree.
Surprised he was selected after how he’s been playing this season. He’s been all over the place defensively & not been producing it going forward either.— John Wardell (@oldjdub) October 11, 2019
Why on earth did he start ahead of Chilwell? Don't the England coaching team look at things like goals conceded or league position?— Will Rudkin (@WMRudkin) October 11, 2019
He's dead right, he has been shocking for Spurs, Chilwell is better— Cathal Robinson (@CathalRobinson) October 11, 2019
Roy Keane absolutely 100% correct Rose’s mark out of 10 would be 1 for turning up. Mind you his three defensive colleagues would score 5 between them— addythewise (@addythewise1) October 11, 2019
Well said! Danny Rose is shocking— Jon Brooks (@jonbrooksnobby) October 11, 2019
Correct, absolutely correct...red card walking was very lucky...think ever since he spoke out about his Spurs woes he's been dire...— Aharon 'Azza' Gillie (@azzatheminion) October 11, 2019
Like Roy Keane. Too many pundits dance on egg shells and afriad to make comment for fear of recrimination.— The Away Section (@TheAwaySection) October 11, 2019
Can’t understand how he’s still starting games. Has been a decent player but Chilwell clearly superior. See also Alexander-Arnold at RB— Will Edden (@w_edden) October 11, 2019
Spot on keano— Brad Taylor (@brad_taylor10) October 11, 2019
telling it like it is tbf— Mike (@carefreecfc1971) October 11, 2019
Can't disagree with that— Darren Troughton (@TroughtonDarren) October 12, 2019
Roy is right! I think he would be good as number 2 at any club the problem he has he speaks the truth and the majority of people don’t like it so players just go on strike or won’t listen if they swallowed some pride and listened they might actually improve— Dave Kelsall (@Dave384) October 11, 2019
Rose is a very good left-back, but the former Leeds United prospect has not been at his best for a while now.
It seems that the 29-year-old is past his prime, and perhaps England manager Gareth Southgate should look at other options for the left-back role.
Tottenham, too, should look at Ryan Sessegnon as a long-term left-back option ahead of Rose.
According to WhoScored, the 29-year-old left-back - who is valued at €20 million (£17.45m) by the CIES Football Observatory - has made seven appearances in the Premier League for Tottenham so far this season.
