We more than agree Harry Kane deserves everything.”United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also commented on Keane’s suggestion before their 1-0 win over Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League last night.Solskjaer hailed Kane as ‘a fantastic goalscorer’, but said his focus was still on the attackers he currently has at his disposal.The Norwegian said: “Roy’s quite straightforward, isn’t he?”For us, it’s working hard.
