Now, we know this one is a non-starter, but there seems to be a social media clamouring for Roy Keane to return to Manchester United.
In a time where Jesse Lingard is boiling the piss of the Manchester United faithful after his antics on Snapchat, while Paul Pogba consistently continues to divide opinions, the news of Roy Keane’s Nottingham Forest exit on Sunday has spiked the attention of the fans who used to worship him.
Keane, a man infamous for his no bullsh*t attitude, has often spoken about the current plight of his former club, saying its a squad full of ‘bluffers’, and has said he ‘wouldn’t trust a word’ that Paul Pogba says.
While it is being reported that Keane is looking to restart his own managerial career having spent the last six years as a number two, that hasn’t stopped hoards of United fans clamoring for their former captains return to Old Trafford, either as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s assistant or as the clubs director of football.
Imagine if Keane came back.
‘Right you f**king little c***s, no more of this f***ing s***e you think is cool. You play for f***king Manchester c**ting United, and if you f**king think you’re getting a f**king free ride, I’ll f**king throw you out of the club my f**king self!’

Roy Keane leaves his job as Assistant Manager at Nottingham Forest. Don't care how good a coach he is would just love him to be made Ole's assistant and see what he says to this current lot of bottlers.#MUFC pic.twitter.com/nq6HL5sriX

Roy Keane as United assistant manager would be like a nuclear bomb going off. Brief, devastating and only a couple of survivors left to rebuild.
Personally, I'd have it.

Roy Keane back at Manchester United would certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons.
