Man Utd legend set for managerial return?

English Premier League

Manchester United legend Roy Keane could be set to make his return to management after being linked with the vacant Salford City post.

According to the Daily Mail, the former Red Devils captain is one of the favourites for the top job at the League Two side after the club announced the sacking of former boss Graham Alexander on Monday afternoon.

Keane previously enjoyed managerial spells with Sunderland and Ipswich City, but has not been at the helm of a club since 2011, although he has held assistant roles with the Republic of Ireland national team and Aston Villa in more recent times.

Salford is co-owned by the 49-year-old's former ex-United teammates Paul Scholes, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham and Nicky Butt, the former of whom will take charge of this weekend's match against Port Vale.

Salford's development coach Warren Joyce, who is currently in isolation, will join Scholes once he has been cleared, and is one of the other contenders for the permanent role alongside Keane and former Wigan Athletic manager Paul Cook.
