Roy Keane

Where is Roy Keane now?

A legend of the Barclays Premier League the former Manchester United captain Roy Keane called time on his career in 2006 after a short spell in Scotland with Celtic.

Many people thought he would go into the coaching side of the game once his career was over and in August 2006 Roy Keane joined Championship side Sunderland as manager.

After two years at Sunderland, Keane resigned, citing differences with their major shareholder Ellis Short and chairman Niall Quinn.

In 2009 Roy Keane was back in football, this time as manager of Ipswich Town but results didn’t go his way and he was sacked in 2011.

In October 2014 Keane released his second autobiography called The Second Half which, true to form, contained a no holds barred account of his footballing life.

In November 2013 Keane was back in management when he was asked by Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill to join his coaching staff as assistant manager.

In July 2014 Keane was appointed as assistant manager to Paul Lambert at Aston Villa, combining the role with his existing Irish one.

After one year in this dual role Roy Keane left Aston Villa as he was unable to juggle his responsibilities for both club and country.

In late 2015, the Republic of Ireland under the guidance of O’Neill and Keane qualified for the Euro 2016 Championships.

The team had a good tournament beating Italy to qualify from their group but went out in the second round to hosts France.

Keane regularly appears as a pundit on ITV’s football coverage and has gained massive popularity from his “harsh but fair” analysis of games.
