Roy Keane rejects Manchester United return rumours

Published Add your comment

Roy Keane has rejected reports linking him with a return to Manchester United as Louis van Gaal's assistant manager.

As reported by the Belfast Telegraph, the former-Old Trafford midfielder responded to speculation that he could be drafted in by van Gaal, should the Dutchman get the job on a permanent basis this summer.

He's the odds-on favourite to be named as David Moyes's successor, although Ryan Giggs did his chances no harm with an impressive 4-0 victory over Norwich in his first match as interim boss on Saturday evening.

Keane, who is currently Martin O'Neil's deputy with the Republic of Ireland, has no interest in returning to Manchester United, where he spent the vast majority of his playing days.

Speaking to Today FM's Ray D'Arcy, Keane said: "People keep asking me, ironically, about other jobs. I have got a job and I am very happy in my job."

Keane, 42, spent 12 years at Old Trafford, making more than 300 Premier League appearances and winning seven league titles, four FA Cups and one Champions League.

Although now an assistant, Keane has had two spells as first-team manager, first with Sunderland for two years and latterly with Ipswich Town.

He made 67 appearances for his country, scoring nine goals.
