Manchester United legend Roy Keane waxes lyrical over James Garner during FA Cup showdown

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has heaped praise on highly-rated youngster James Garner as he continues to impress on loan at Nottingham Forest.

The United academy graduate is in his second season on loan at the City Ground where he has already shone on their FA Cup journey, claiming the scalps of Arsenal and Leicester City. On Sunday, Garner was given a start by manager Steve Cooper as he looked to end the hopes of a quadruple for United’s fierce rivals Liverpool.

Garner has gone from strength to strength under the former Swansea head coach. As a result of his glittering displays in the red of Forest, he has been singled out for more involvement at Old Trafford next season.

Speaking on ITV, Keane said: “He’s been [in] a really good partnership with [Ryan] Yatesy, they complement each other very well, he’s technically very good.

“He likes to dictate the play, sits a little bit deeper than Yates. Tough game for him today, this is a great experience for young players coming up against top players like Liverpool, great way to learn.”
