The Roy Keane footballing legacy continues with high expectations from fans as he is appointed manager of Sunderland.

Declan McBennett reports from the Stadium of Light in Sunderland following the appointment of Roy Keane as manager of the club.

He must instil a winning mentality into a club which has developed a culture of losing.

Speaking to Sunderland fans on Keane's appointment, expectations are high with one fan commenting

He's always been a winner in my eyes... somebody like him might just give this club a boost.

Another fan says

If he's as hard a manager as he was a player, we might be getting somewhere... He's Keane by name and keen by nature.
