HOW DID ROY KEANE LOSE THE PLOT?

How did Roy Keane lose the plot?

It all started so well!

What went wrong?

The ex-Manchester skipper looked like he was born to be a manger.

At one stage there where even whispers he would one day take over as manager at Man United.

It was all so great.

Roy Keane was able to bring this team out of the Championship to the Premier League he had once dominated as skipper.

He was even able to attract players like Cisse, mainly due to his reputation he once had as a player.

After they were able to stay in the Premier league last season, Sunderland seemed like a club that was going places.

However, after a run of 6 defeats in 7 games it all went crazy.

A few games before this, Keane had been booed by supporters.

This is almost a given for Premier League managers to receive this sort of reception at some time in their managerial career.

But being Roy Keane, this was unacceptable to him, who said: “That’s something I’ve not come into the job to accept”.

Without being too harsh, this almost seems immature.

The best of managers have been booed, and one should come to expect this.

Even Roy Keane!

Furthermore this shows a lack of resilience.

Something one must demonstrate as a manager.

I guess this shows us that not all great players can be great managers.

It could almost be a case of a player who once dominated the premier league, returning with a weaker team he is expecting to play like Manchester United.

Maybe Keane returned to the premier league too quick, and should have been learning his craft in the lower leagues.

You  almost felt that he was just signing players because he could and not because he should, when you break it all down.

Well who knows what the future holds for Roy Keane.

Will he ever return to be a manger again?
