Mick Dennis Column: Who would hire Keane as a boss?

Byline: Mick Dennis

I WASN'T going to mention Roy Keane this week, but it is impossible to find a funnier idea than his daft suggestion that he might go into management when he stops kicking opponents.

Who would employ him? He is hardly likely to get the Old Trafford job when Fergie hangs up that old raincoat and finally retires.

The United players wouldn't put up with Roy as boss after the stick he has given them for liking Rolex watches and nice cars.

Other clubs will worry that Roy will upset sponsors by complaining again about the prawn sandwich brigade and annoy the FA by moaning about their Cup again.

He described the FA Cup as a word beginning with 'b'. (I don't know what it was because it had a lot of asterisks instead of the other letters, but there were not enough for the word to be 'brilliant').

Anyhow, since he thinks football is full of "spivs, bluffers, hangers-on, media whores and bad actors" why does Roy want to stay in the game?

Surely he would be better off applying to the diplomatic corps.
