Roy Keane has been discussed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s potential successor at Manchester United in a light-hearted conversation during Sky Sports’ Super Sunday show. United sacked Solskjaer shortly after the humiliating 4-1 defeat against Watford on Saturday.
After guiding United to just four wins in their last 13 games in all competitions, the Norwegian club icon left Carrington for good on Sunday.
Michael Carrick has taken charge of the squad for ‘forthcoming games’, but United plan to appoint an interim manager until the end of the season.
Names such as Julen Lopetegui and Laurent Blanc have been touted as potential candidates, but could Keane be an outside shout?
The United great has grown a reputation for his hot-headed takes on the club and its players as a pundit on Sky Sports, and his colleagues have discussed whether he’d be a good temporary option.

After Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 win over Leeds United, Robbie Keane, Jamie Redknapp, and Micah Richards pondered who the Red Devils could turn to next.
After Keane threw his Republic of Ireland compatriot’s name into the hat, Redknapp suggested that he and Gary Neville would be a ‘dream’ partnership.
But Richards disagreed, stating: “I mean, it’s tough. Probably not at this time. I think Roy Keane would be a great manager [though].
“I’m not saying he couldn’t do it; I’m talking about the relationship with the players. He’s slagged off half the dressing room!”
