Yesterday came the surprise revelation at Ipswich Town Football Club. The small Suffolk outfit named former Manchester United captain and media gold dust Roy Keane. Keane who walked out on Sunderland back in December of last year has wasted no time in causing more rife and controversy in the game with his latest comments.

Keane who won the Championship in his last and only spell in the division branded his former Manchester United team mates who now too earn there way in football management, as ‘unsuccessful’ and that he did not want to follow in the footsteps of his former colleagues in terms of their achievements as managers, or lack of it in his translation. Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce, Paul Ince and Bryan Robson were all subject to the Irishman’s rant and when questioned about how well the likes of Hughes and Bruce had done with their respected clubs Keane was clear to point out his views of success by answering, ‘they haven’t won anything’.

This really emphasis the character of the man, he’s a winner pure and simple. He doesn’t contemplate defeat, second best or consolidation, Roy Keane demands success and trophies. He’s strict, angry and earns immediate respect. Keane has tasted silverware both as a player and as a manager and he will be requiring more success in his latest role.

When times started getting tough at Sunderland and the landslide from Championship winners inevitably begun Keane could not stomach it. He’s been at the top all his playing career with Manchester United and winning is all he knows. Lumbering around mid table is unheard of in his line of work and it was then he decided Sunderland were not for him.

The Irishman will ball into Ipswich with two league games remaining and he will decide over these two games who are ‘his kind of players’ and who are the weak to be scrapped in the summer. He’s signed a two year deal and the man will expect to be managing in the Premiership again with Ipswich Town when it comes round to renewing a deal with the club. Keane is eager to impress and improve on his previous managerial venture and is all out to prove he can drag a club from mid table mediocrity to the glory of promotion to the big time. Ipswich Town brace yourselves for one hell of a ride…………. success or failure there will not be a dull moment at Portman Road with Roy Keane in charge.
