Micah Richards had a hilarious reaction when Roy Keane proposed to become Manchester United manager at Sky Sports yesterday.
The former Manchester City defender is a friend and colleague of Keynes, both of whom frequent the Sky as a scholar.
However, when Ole Gunnar presented the idea of an Irishman taking over from Soulsgear, it sparked a cheek answer from Richards.
Former right-back Robbie Keane and Jamie Redknapp joined Sky Sports Studios on Sunday evening.
Watch the full conversation below for yourself.
Commenting on Soulsjer’s dismissal, informally dropped from United just hours before, Keane’s name suggested “Roy solves it.”
Redknapp later sarcastically called “Roy Keane and Gary Neville’s assistant.”
It gave Richards a good laugh, before he retreated, “He’s half slagged.” [United] Room for change of clothes! ”
One time United leader recently said “I give up [on these players]“After some pretty boring closing attempts during the club’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City at home.
Suffice it to say, some people do cartwheels in the news that Keen’s manager is in the Old Trafford dressing room.
Betting markets do not think this is particularly likely, as early starters are Mauricio Pochettino, Brendan Rodgers and Michael Carrick.
Fortunately for all of us, Keane seems to be staying at Sky Sports, where he continues to entertain and rage in equal measure.
