Roy Keane: Nottingham Forest assistant boss leaves Championship club

 

Nottingham Forest assistant manager Roy Keane has left the Championship club.

The 47-year-old former Forest player returned to the City Ground in January following the appointment of Martin O’Neill, with whom he worked at the Republic of Ireland.

The ex-Manchester United midfielder described the experience of working with O’Neill as “one of my greatest in football, both as a player and coach”.

Forest finished ninth in the table in 2018-19.

Keane had spells as manager of Sunderland and Ipswich Town before being part of the Republic of Ireland set-up when they reached the last 16 of the 2016 European Championship.

As a player, he appeared in FA Cup and League Cup finals for Forest after joining from Irish club Cobh Ramblers in 1990.

He later won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League during more than a decade at Old Trafford.

Nottingham Forest begin their Championship campaign at home to Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, 3 August.
