The Manchester United legend appears to be eyeing a return to management despite his incredible success in the media.
Roy Keane enjoyed a spectacular career at Manchester United as a player and has been very successful in his recent ventures of being a pundit. His unique takes have always created a buzz among the fans. One area that he never found the same success in, is management.
But recently the Irishman has expressed his desires of making a return to management and according to a report by The Sun, the former Manchester United captain told his friends that he has been “itching” to be a boss again and get back to the day-to-day involvement at a club that he is missing.
Keane has been spotted back at Carrington a couple of time and as claimed by a report from the Daily Star, he might be having some opportunity there, although it will definitely not be as first-team manager as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to hold that position for the foreseeable future.

He was appointed the manager of Sunderland back in 2006 immediately after his retirement. The 7-time Premier League winner managed to promote his team to the top division, where they ended 15th.
The 2008/09 season did not go as well though after Keane had to step down from the job with his side languishing at 18th position. His next job was at Ipswich Town but that did not end well for him either as he got sacked after poor performances from the team. And since then he has not had a top job. His most recent involvement has been with Nottingham Forest, where he was appointed as assistant manager to Martin O’Neill.
Although the Irishman left the club within just five months and is now featured as a top pundit for the Sky Sports network, but it seems like Keane is not satisfied with just holding the mic and wants to be involved from the sidelines.
