Roy Keane admits it's unlikely that he'll be offered the chance to manage another club.

The former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland captain held talks with Sunderland in February but the League One side ultimately opted to appoint Alex Neill as their head coach.

He most recently worked as an assistant to Martin O'Neill with Ireland and Nottingham Forest but hasn't coached since 2019.

And Keane has told Lad Bible TV that he can’t see another club giving him another "good opportunity" to get back into management.

“I like watching games and giving my opinions, I like working with Sky and ITV, I feel lucky," the Cork man told fellow Sky Sports analyst Jamie Carragher when asked if he's enjoying punditry.

“I still don’t feel as if it’s my job. Maybe that’s because I’ve been involved in a bit of coaching and management.

“Recently, I feel that them days are over for me of going back into management. I’m 50 now, I’m doing the TV, I’m obviously labelled as more of a pundit now.

“I feel like I’m getting my head around, maybe it’s more of a head job, maybe that this is more of the role for me. I can’t see a club giving me a really good opportunity to get back into it.”
