After months of speculation following poor results Roy Keane was sacked as the Manager of Ipswich Town on 7th January 2011. As well as Ipswich, he is the former Manager of Sunderland and the former captain of Manchester United. Keane is considered one of the best players to ever play in the Premier League and won countless trophies under Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford during his playing career.
Keane started his playing days in his native Ireland before being picked up by the legendary Brian Clough to play for Nottingham Forest in 1990. He impressed everyone at The City Ground and did enough to impress Manchester United who bought the tough tackling midfielder in 1993 and he would go onto become an Old Trafford legend.
Keane won a plethora of medals as a player at Man Utd, including seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League trophy.
His first managerial role came at Championship side Sunderland where he teamed up with Niall Quinn. Taking over the reins at a club that were sitting in the relegation zone of the Championship, Keane managed to turn things round at the Stadium Of light and during his tenure at the North East club managed to get them promoted to the Premier League and more impressively cementing their place in the top tier of English football.
However, in 2009 Keane's relationship with the board was getting more and more strained and he eventually resigned from his position and he was on the look out for a new job that came at Ipswich Town.
Keane struggled in the hot seat at Portman Road and with the club facing relegation, the Irishman was shown the door in January 2011 as the club failed to push for promotion. He will now be on the lookout for another job in management, but keeps his face in the game by appearing as a football pundit on terrestial television.
Last April Keane was linked with a move to Australian club Sydney FC but nothing ever came of it. He is taking a break at the moment and is only likely to return to a Championship or Premier League club.
