After managing Sunderland and Ipswich, Roy Keane is now working as a football pundit on the TV, but says he would go back in to management if the right offer came along.
“I don’t know until I get the call,” he said. “I have to say, I think I am keeping myself busy, but I don’t sit around all day with my feet up, it is not in my make-up. Football is very much in my blood and I have to say the idea of football management, being on the sideline for all the suffering that goes with it, is something that I enjoy. But I really do not know until that call comes. If I see vacancies available and I think I can do something for the club, like everybody else I will put my CV in for it.”
Keane has suggested he would even consider a move abroad after turning down offers from foreign clubs to play for them when he was at United.
“I am very open-minded,” said Keane. “I think I might have made a mistake as a player not moving abroad, but I was very happy at United. I had opportunities to go abroad but I did not take them, so I would not rule it out. I think you have to be open-mined when you are a coach or a manager; it is a worldwide game now. Yes so if the right opportunity came along I would look at it.”
