Roy Keane will not be the new manager of Sunderland, negotiations have failed!

Sunderland will not re-appoint Roy Keane as its new manager, BBC Radio Newcastle reports.

The former Irish footballer led Sunderland for two years, between 2006 and 2008, during which he took them to the Premier League.

Keane entered into negotiations with the League 1 club last week, but now it is known that he will not return. The Manchester United legend has been out of the football administration since he left Ipswich in 2011.

Sunderland were second in the table after their last league victory over Portsmouth on January 22, but with a 6-0 defeat by Bolton, boss Lee Johnson was sacked in the next game, and they later lost to Doncaster and Cheltenham and fell to fourth place. .

Since his last role in Ipswich, Keane has held the positions of assistant manager in the Republic of Ireland, Aston Will and Nottingham Forest, but his only participation in the game since 2019 was as a TV expert.

He said in recent interviews that he still wants to return to management.
