Keano: No More Spot Kicks For Wazza

Roy Keane says it is high time Wayne Rooney hands over the penalty-taking duties at Manchester United to Robin van Persie.

Rooney missed yet another spot-kick during United’s midweek FA Cup win over West Ham, and he has now fluffed 10 out of the 27 penalties he has taken for the Red Devils.

Meanwhile, Dutch striker van Persie can seemingly do no wrong in a United kit. And so former club captain Keane says it is time Wazza stepped aside, to allow RVP to do what he does best.

In fact, Keane believes the decision will be taken out of Rooney’s hands by a “fuming” Alex Ferguson.

Keane knows Fergie as well as anyone, and does not think the gruff Glaswegian will tolerate another haphazard spot-kick  by his former golden boy Rooney, with classy Dutchman RVP to call on.

"He [Ferguson] will be fuming," Keane told ITV.

"I think that will be the last penalty Rooney takes for United. He could have made things a lot easier. The last thing the manager would have wanted was for the game to go to extra-time.

"Wayne has missed 10 now and that is far too many. Clearly he is not up to it in terms of taking penalties. Van Persie I'm sure will be delighted to take over that role."
