LONDON: Former Manchester United star Roy Keane has joined Nottingham Forest as assistant manager, the club said in a statement on Monday.

Keane, who started his professional football career with The Reds in 1990 and went on to make over 100 appearances in the Garibaldi, joins Martin O’Neill’s backroom staff.

Interestingly, he was also assisted O'Neill’s in 2013 with Ireland national team.

Signed by Brian Clough in 1990, Keane made his professional first-team debut against Liverpool in the 1990-91 season before netting his first senior goal against Sheffield United in the same campaign.

After a hugely successful playing career captaining Manchester United, Roy went on to win seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a European Cup with The Red Devils, as well as picking up 67 caps for the Republic of Ireland and featuring in every game at the 1994 World Cup where they reached Round of 16.

The Irishman then went on to manage Sunderland and Ipswich Town.

In his first taste of management, he secured promotion with The Black Cats in the 2006-07 season and reached the 2011 League Cup semifinals with Ipswich Town. Pic Credit: Nottingham Forest/Twitter
