5 managers Man Utd could appoint who would infuriate Roy Keane – including Klopp

There are few things that football fans enjoy more than a good Roy Keane rant.

No pundit can pull off an outburst like him, which is why he was crowned as the winner of our World Cup of Pundits last month.

The former Manchester United man recently spoke of his fears for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's position, with pressure mounting on the Red Devils boss.

And should Solskjaer fail to turn around United's poor form in a very tough run of upcoming games and ultimately be sacked, there are a few potential replacements which would get Keane's blood boiling once more.

We at Daily Star Sport are taking a look at five such examples.

Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers is a shoe-in for a top job after his progression with Leicester and currently looks to be the heir to Pep Guardiola for Man City.

However, their rivals could beat them to the punch if they get rid of Solskjaer.

When Rodgers was in charge at Celtic, he was on the receiving end of Keane's sharp tongue.

His side had just progressed to the Europa League group stage despite a 1-0 loss to Anderlecht, which Rodgers was very pleased with. Keane, not so much.

“I thought it was a shocking result, a really poor performance,” he said. “Brendan’s talking about how it’s a great achievement…I think the key to management nowadays is to set your standards really, really low, and you’ll be in the game for a long time.

"It’s just not acceptable for Celtic, losing at home to Anderlecht? Give me a break."

Patrick Vieira

Who do you predict the next Man Utd boss will be? Let us know in the comments section.

We couldn't not include Vieira on this list just because of the thought of Keane's face if that news broke. Priceless wouldn't cut it.

The pair's rivalry is very well documented and the footballing world would go crazy if the Arsenal legend took charge at United.

It's very unlikely – but with Vieira making a good start in his first Premier League gig at Crystal Palace, you never know…

Mick McCarthy

Keane infamously walked out of Ireland's camp before the 2002 World Cup after a bust up with McCarthy.

The national team manager had confronted his captain for his comments about their training facilities in Saipan.

In response, Keane allegedly said: “Mick, you’re a liar … you’re a f**king w****r. I didn’t rate you as a player, I don’t rate you as a manager, and I don’t rate you as a person. You’re a f**king w****r and you can stick your World Cup up your a***.”

So yeah, fair to say his arrival at Old Trafford would go down like a led balloon in the Keane household.

Peter Schmeichel

Schmeichel, unlike a lot of his old United team-mates from the '90s, is yet to dip his toe into management. Never say never, though.

Keane left the Dane with a black eye after the two got into an argument during a tour of Asia in '98.

A swift headbutt to the face did the damage. It's fair to say the two don't see eye-to-eye – if you'll pardon the pun.

Jurgen Klopp

Klopp and Keane have gone back and forth more times than a tennis rally and the whole world got to see them have it out on Sky Sports last year.

A live interview was conducted with the Liverpool boss after a 3-1 Anfield win over Arsenal, before which he'd overheard Keane accuse his side of being 'sloppy'.

The German boss unsurprisingly did not share the same opinion and stood up against Keane in a TV gold moment.
