Roy Keane To Take Up Punditry Role For The Rest Of The Season

Roy Keane To Take Up Punditry Role For The Rest Of The Season

Roy Keane will be working in punditry this season after it was confirmed that the former Manchester United midfielder will join Sky Sports.

Keane has worked with the broadcaster before and will start immediately, starting with Liverpool's visit to Chelsea on Sunday.

"I've worked with Sky Sports quite a few times over the years and it's always been an experience I've enjoyed, so this makes absolute sense," said Keane. "While I'm not coaching I still want to be involved in the game and in some ways, this is the next best thing.

It's a game of opinions, I've never shied away from giving mine and that's only going to continue this season. Sky Sports has always been famous for the heated debates - I look forward to starting a few more.

Keane is just one of several new signings for Sky Sports, who also secured Jose Mourinho last summer.

The Irishman left his role as assistant manager for Nottingham Forest last June citing his ambitions to focus on his management career. At an Off The Ball roadshow in Dublin last month, he said he stills hopes to manage in football again but is happy to do some punditry in the meantime.
