Richard Keys and Andy Gray have criticized Roy Keane and other modern pundits for their continued condemnation of players like Harry Maguire.

During a joint interview with the Telegraph, Keys and Gray explained how modern experts are “too quick to condemn”.

Keys began: “All is not s*** in football. But it is if you watch British TV.

“I had this conversation with (Arsene) Wenger. He said to me, ‘Why is Sky spending £1.1 billion on a three-year broadcast rights cycle and then spending? her this period to destroy it?”

‘He is right. I don’t understand it either. If Andy or I had offered a twinkle of the same review to the modern gamer, we would have been on our ears.

The 65-year-old went on to explain how Keane went after him during his reign as manager at Ipswich.

After hearing Keys’ comments about Ipswich in 2008, Keane insisted he “would rather be a dentist than an analyst” and has since become one of Sky’s most recognized pundits.

“Guys who criticize were probably the most sensitive of their time,” Keys continued.

“When he was manager at Ipswich, Roy hammered at me. Now it’s on everyone’s wish list because it comes along and pound everything else.

Gray added: “We are too quick to condemn. Rather than beating the players, I try to find out why they might be struggling.

“Luckily I had a boss at Sky, Andy Melvin, who taught me, ‘Don’t just criticize, tell me why it’s bad and why it could get better.’

“Look how Harry Maguire is beaten. And yet, Manchester United paid £80million for him. So it can’t be hopeless.

“If I had a bad day on the pitch, I would look at the Sunday papers, see a three out of 10, and that would be it. Now there will be memes about you all over the world.’
