Roy Keane could make his return to football management soon as he is reportedly in talks to become the new Azerbaijan manager.
The Manchester United legend has appeared as a pundit on Sky Sports since he stepped down from his assistant manager role at Nottingham Forest in 2019.
Keane previously worked as a No 2 at the Republic of Ireland and Aston Villa, as well as managing Ipswich Town and Sunderland.
The Sun now reports that the 48-year-old Irishman is eying up a return to management after working as a pundit.
And Azerbaijan are keen to make Keane their new head coach as they ramp up their efforts to land the Premier League legend.
According to the newspaper, Azerbaijan reportedly want an answer this week as they continue their search for Nikola Jurcevic's successor.
Azerbaijan were placed in Group E for their Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures and finished bottom with only one point.
Keane hit the headlines earlier this month after he launched a scathing attack on David de Gea and Harry Maguire for their performances against Tottenham.
Both De Gea and Maguire were at fault for Steven Bergwijn's opener in the 1-1 draw, but the former United skipper was furious with their mistakes.
Keane said during his rant on Sky Sports: "I am sick to death of this goalkeeper. I would be flying in at half time. I would be swinging punches at that guy."
The former Sunderland boss continued to pull no punches after the full-time whistle as he once again took shots at De Gea and Maguire.
"Maguire and De Gea, I wouldn't even let them on the bus after the game," he said.
"Get a taxi back to Manchester."
