Roy Keane during his stint as manager of Ipswich Town. Could he return with Salford City?

LEESIDE legend Roy Keane is a strong contender for the Salford City job.

Man United's famous 'Class of ‘92' are the owners of Salford, and Paul Scholes was placed in temporary charge earlier this week.

Surprisingly, Graham Alexander was sacked despite an unbeaten start to their League Two campaign.

According to BoyleSports, Keane's odds have sunk into 6/4 from 5/1 with BoyleSports since the vacancy arose. Roy's last role, apart from pundit, was alongside Martin O'Neill at Nottingham Forest.

He's now ahead of ex-Manchester U reserve coach Warren Joyce, the 11/4 second-favourite to make the step up from Salford’s development side. 

Sam Allardyce is also included in the odds, at 8/1.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: 

“Warren Joyce was the early favourite for the Salford manager’s job, but we can no longer ignore the interest we’re seeing in Roy Keane getting the call. 

"We’ve had no choice but to make him 6/4 favourite from an opening quote of 5/1 and now we’re waiting to see if the money is well-informed.” 

Next Salford Manager: 

6/4 Roy Keane 

11/4 Warren Joyce 

11/2 Paul Cook 

8/1 Sam Allardyce 

12/1 Danny Cowley
