Roy Keane Had The Best Reaction To Being Asked About The Sunderland Job Live On-Air

Roy Keane couldn't help but smile after being asked about the Sunderland job live on ITV - and he gave an honest answer.


It was reported on Thursday that the Irishman was set to be interviewed by the League One side after 10 years out of management.

Mark Pougatch started the broadcast by asking Keane about the job and revealed he'd been at the club earlier today.

"Roy, there’s been lots of speculation linking you with the Sunderland job… what can you tell us?" he says.

Keane then replied: "I've got no control over that... so no comment," before letting out a wry smile.

When pressed for a more detailed answer he continued: "I've made it clear over the last few years I'd like to go back into management. A club has to want you, you have to want that club and just as important the contract has to be right.

"Listen, we'll see how things take shape over the next few days."

Ian Wright then jokes he won't survive without Keane on ITV and he said, "I'll stay then, I'll stay."

Fans have reacted to Keane's comments and they love his brutal honesty.

One commented: "I absolutely love how this man answers questions."

Another said: "This was interesting. The most anticipated decision in football."

While a third put: "He already knows the answer, doesn't he?"

Keane previously managed Sunderland between 2006 and 2008, helping them get promoted to the Premier League.

He would then have a spell with Ipswich Town between 2009 and 2011 but since then, his jobs have been as an assistant with the Republic of Ireland national team, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa.

Keane is working as a pundit on Manchester United vs Middlesbrough in the FA Cup this evening and United currently lead 1-0.

A strong United side won a penalty after the returning Paul Pogba was hauled down by Anfernee Dijksteel.

Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up and shockingly put his penalty wide of the post.

His blushes were spared moments later however as Jadon Sancho smashed home the opener after a deflection.

Marcus Rashford thought he'd put United 2-0 up but he was judged to have been offside.
