Keane walks away from Staduim of Light

Sunderland have today confirmed the departure of Roy Keane. The Irishman had stated a lot previously that he didn't know if he was the right man for the job after a tough season losing 8 and drawing 3 of his 15 games in charge.

Keane took charge of Sunderland when they were struggling in the Championship back in August 2006 since then he got them promoted and secured Premiership football last season coming 15th which was a good achievement. Keane looked like he was going to do very well this season after spending around £30million bringing in some top class players to challenge for a top half finish. But things didn't go so well for the outspoken manager who's team were not pro forming on the pitch and he was also getting into a few argument's off the pitch.

Niall Quinn has said Keane was brilliant for the club with his winning mentality and would of liked him to stay but had to accept he wanted to leave. Quinn wished Keane the best of look in the future.

Sunderland who of course will be looking to replace Keane as soon as possible maybe have the options of Alan Curbishley and early favourite Sam Allerdyce. As for Roy Keane i feel he did a good job at Sunderland over the two years he spent there and i expect him to be back in football in the future.
