Roy Keane lined up for surprise return to management

Posted by

Sunderland are reportedly planning on giving an interview to Roy Keane for the managerial vacancy.

Keane managed Sunderland between 2006 and 2008 as the former Manchester United captain looked to launch a prosperous managerial career. Unfortunately for the Irishman, it didn’t quite take off, hence his pivot into punditry.

Cork-born Keane has become a viewer-favourite on our TV screens, with his analysis on Sky Sports oftentimes going viral, especially when it’s Manchester United he’s covering.

However, we might soon be without him, with the Daily Mail reporting that he will be interviewed to take the Sunderland job for a second tenure, 13 years after he left the Stadium of Light.

Keane has not been a fully-fledged manager for over a decade now and is lacking on experience when it comes to bringing teams up the pyramid and turning them into contenders again.

However, he is a character who commands respect and could give the Sunderland dressing room the boot up the backside they require to get them into the Championship.
