It was announced earlier today that United legend Roy Keane had left his role as Nottingham Forest assistant manager after a five-month spell working under Martin O’Neill.
“Working with Martin over the last few years has been a magnificent experience, one of my greatest in football both as a player and a coach and one I want to personally thank him for,” Keane said in an official statement.
Despite Keane suggesting his Forest departure concerns his desire to return to management himself, if has not stopped United fans from suggesting the feared Irishman should return to Old Trafford in some capacity.
Some United fans on twitter have called for Keane to return in a coaching role or even as a director of football.
We all know the chances of Keano returning to Old Trafford are almost none, but there would certainly be fireworks if he did return.
Keane has been vocal in punditry over his opinions over United’s lack of effort at the moment, and did not hold back when discussing the club’s home defeat to eventual champions Manchester City last season.
Although it might not be at United next season, it will be interesting to see Keane’s future plans and his next job in football.
Roy Keane needs to come to Man Utd, he knows what needs sorting out and he know Solksjaer very well, he knows the club inside out and what need refurburishing and Bring Man Utd back.

Roy Keane should absolutely be brought in as Ole’s number 2. As well as being absolutely hilarious, it would put the plebs in their place. #MUFC

I'd personally take Roy Keane back – not to sort the players out, but to sort out Woodward.
"Where are the signings? Fuck your new sponsors , where are the players we need you useless shitbags?!?"
Woodward would have to deliver or would be killed.#mufc

Roy Keane has left his job at Forest.
Before people link him with a role at United… Just remember, if that did happen, he would be serving 8-16 years for manslaughter after one week in and around that dressing room.
