Graeme Souness Tips Roy Keane To Be Man United's Next Manager

Graeme Souness Tips Roy Keane To Be Man United's Next Manager

If there's one person who should know all about legendary, grizzled and bullshit-allergic midfielders taking over one of the biggest clubs in the world only to plunge them into crisis, it's Graeme Souness.

In spite of that, he is tipping Roy Keane to be Man United's new manager.

Jose Mourinho's sacking led Sky Sports to interrupt Souness' golf game to take his opinion on who should replace the now-erstwhile United boss.

Souness believes that United should appoint someone who is steeped in the club, and suggested Ryan Giggs (currently the Wales manager) and Keane, who hasn't been a manager since being sacked by Ipswich Town seven years ago.

Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane [should be the next manager]. Someone who is steeped in Manchester United history. Someone who is given time, and more, to get it right. Someone with an old head with a Man United connection. It's been proven - you've gone for the two biggest names in football, and it hasn't worked.

We have to say - Keane as United boss would be spectacular...but it is surely doomed to failure, given that Keane hasn't had any success since Sunderland. Plus, how could he get on with the likes of Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard, having been so affronted by their modernity on television last Sunday?

Separately - if Ryan Giggs was to skip out on a few Wales games to take temporary charge of United, it might be peak Giggsy.

Nonetheless, we hope Keane gets the job.

Perhaps with Martin O'Neill as his assistant.
