Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane says he has a lot to learn before earning the “right” to be considered as a future Manchester United boss.

Asked if he had any ambition to someday take charge at Old Trafford, the former Sunderland and Ipswich coach said: “It’s a silly question. You have to earn your right. I’ve made massive mistakes, particularly at Ipswich, but I think I done okay at Sunderland.

“I’m still learning, I think I’m learning under a top, top manager in Martin [O’Neill, Ireland manager]. I think it’s dangerous to look too far ahead,” added the ex-Red Devils captain, who spent 12 years at the club.
