Roy Keane says Manchester United would ‘never’ approach him over the vacant managerial position at Old Trafford, but failed to rule out a return to management.
The former Irish national team player had a glittering playing career with United before joining the management, where he was responsible for Sunderland in the Premier League and then Ipswich.
Keane has not fared well since leaving Portman Road a decade ago, but he took on the role of assistant manager at Ireland, Aston Villa and most recently Nottingham Forest.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær was fired on Sunday before Michael Carrick took the reins for the victory over Villarreal before their trip to Chelsea.
The Norwegian left with United as number eight after the defeat to Watford extended the recent race to one victory in two months of Premier League action.
Ralf Rangnick has agreed a deal with Manchester United to become the next interim manager of the club. Mauricio Pochettino remains the preferred choice to take over the hot seat of management on a permanent basis at the Theater of Dreams.
“They would never call me, they would never call me, it would never happen,” Keane told Sky Sports.

“I do not think it would have been a problem for me, but people tend to forget that I have done it before. I did okay in the Premier League with Sunderland.”
