Roy Keane 'Approached' For Newcastle Head Coach's Job

We can't believe it either...

Roy Keane has reportedly been offered the Newcastle United Head Coach's job according to a source in Wales. Not only that, Keane is said to be "hugely" interested in the role. What on earth is going on? Tim Pearson, a journalist from Wales, broke the news which as of yet has failed to have any more sources class it as credible. We don't know who Tim writes for or how he obtained this information, so the chances are this is nothing more than a silly season rumour and a complete waste of your time. https://twitter.com/TimPearsonMedia/status/603549326623793153 Pearson would later go on to tweet: "The word is that the opportunity would 'hugely interest' Roy. Very interesting developments. #NUFC" The former Sunderland manager hasn't a full time top job since leaving Ipswich Town in January 2011 so he would certainly be an unexpected choice by Lee Charnley and United's 'football board'. He would also be an unholy unpopular choice due to his ties with The Black Cats and Manchester United, the latter being Newcastle's main rivals for the Premier League title in 1996. The former Ireland international also made himself a pantomime villain on Tyneside after clashing with United great Alan Shearer in 2001. Keane even went as far as sending a punch Shearer's way before being unceremoniously sent off. Surely this can't be true...
