Keane doesn’t want Manchester United return and apologises to Scholes and Giggs

Roy Keane has no desire to return to Manchester United right now despite being linked with the assistant manager role.

Keane’s name was a surprise inclusion in a list of candidates linked with the job but he is happy in his current job with the Republic of Ireland.

“People keep asking me, ironically, about other jobs. I have got a job and I am very happy in my job,” he said.


Also, Keane’s fractured relationship with Sir Alex Ferguson has led to the Irishman saying he is unlikely to ever speak to Fergson again.

He added: “No, I am not sure. Probably not. But look, I have said that about other people.”

As Keane mentioned, he did say that about other people, most notably Republic of Ireland chief John Delaney after the debacle of Keane leaving the World Cup, a man who he now works for.

This week, Keane also apologised to the likes of Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville after all three were left out of his best XI side from a TV show he did with Patrick Viera.

“That programme is not something I’m entirely happy that I’ve done,” he said. “Whether people liked it or not, I felt uncomfortable picking my best XI.

“I felt embarrassed leaving players out. I feel like I disrespected my teammates. And if you asked me to name my best XI now, well I wouldn’t do it, first of all. But if I did, there’d probably be three or four changes.”

Here was the XI that Keane would change. What would be your XI?
