Roy Keane is closing in on a long-awaited return to management as he holds talks with Sunderland over their managerial vacancy, with his days as a Sky Sports pundit set to come to an end.

Keane has proved to be a hugely popular pundit during his time on Sky, with the former Ireland and Manchester United captain rarely holding back when he voices his unforgiving opinions.

His jovial clashes with Micah Richards has shown a different side of Keane, while his passionate views have created viral hits aplenty.

Sunday afternoons may be a little less entertaining with Keane losing his temper for our viewing pleasure and as he prepares to make a return to the game, Sky have released a video of some of his best rants.

ROY KEANE’S ON AIR RANTS OF 2021

On David De Gea: “I give up on this keeper. I’ve been criticising him for years now and he just makes too many mistakes. I wouldn’t allow him to come back on the team bus after that performance.”

On Kyle Walker: “He’s an idiot. He’s a car crash, he keeps making these types of mistakes and is rightly punished for it.”

On Harry Maguire’s goal celebrations for England against Albania: “Puts his hands to his ears like he shutting the critics up? I think that’s embarrassing. He’s been a disgrace the last couple of months for Manchester United. He thinks if he scores there, he’s going to shut his critics up. Embarrassing.”

On Aaron Wan-Bissaka: “I don’t even think Crystal Palace would take him back now. He’s not good enough for Manchester United. No feel for the ball. No decision making.”

On Fred: “Anyone who tells me Fred is good enough for United - they’re in cuckoo land. Why do they keep picking him?”

On Pogba: “He is talented, but the guy has no desire. He doesn’t track back, he doesn’t work. This idea that he wants to be loved? Do me a favour.”

On Tottenham: “When I was playing, we always knew we’d beat Tottenham. There is a culture at that club that they enjoy getting beaten.”

On Ireland: “A real lack of quality in that squad. When your best player is Seamus Coleman, who is a full-back, tough times ahead. The lack of goals for Ireland are scary.”
