ROY KEANE was in a good mood as old side Manchester United beat another of his former teams in Nottingham Forest to reach the Carabao Cup final.

The Sky Sports pundit made a hilarious plea to United boss Erik ten Hag after the game.

Goals from Anthony Martial and Fred saw the Red Devils win 2-0 on the night, and 5-0 on aggregate.

And Keane, 51, seemingly isn’t planning to be on punditry duty for the final.

Instead he jokingly asked Ten Hag after the game for “two complimentary” tickets to the match.

Keane said to the United boss on Sky: “And if you have any spare tickets for the final, you let me [know].

“Just two, two complimentary I hope, yes? Thank you.”

Ten Hag couldn’t turn down the former club captain and seven-time Premier League winner.

Granting Keane’s wish, he responded: “I think so Roy, no problem!”

Ten Hag then walked away down the Old Trafford tunnel, before Keane insisted to presenter Mark Chapman that he didn’t want to pay a penny for the tickets.


He joked again: “Complimentary as well, I’m not paying!”

Chapman later revealed Keane was “in the squad” for the final – meaning fans can expect the United legend to be providing his usual insight on February 26.

Earlier in the night, Keane had blasted January signing Wout Weghorst for missing a glorious chance to put the hosts ahead.

Nevertheless Ten Hag’s side coasted to victory, and will face Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final at the end of the month.

In his debut campaign at the club, Ten Hag has guided United to a first final since the 2021 Europa League penalty shootout defeat to Villarreal.
