Keane ‘considered for Israel job’ ahead of Euro 2020 qualifying campaign

Date Posted,August 9, 2017

Former Manchester United skipper Roy Keane has been linked with the Israel national team manager position.

Keane is currently the Republic of Ireland assistant manager under Martin O’Neill with the pair eyeing a place in next year’s World Cup in Russia following their qualification for Euro 2016.

But Israeli outlet ONE reports that the chairman of the Israel Football Association Ofer Eini is said to be ‘considering the possibility’ of hiring the former Sunderland boss, although he is yet to make an official approach.

Keane, has been in his current role since 2013, has another year on his deal with Ireland which runs until the end of the 2018 World Cup.

Israel, managed by Elisha Levy, are already seven-points behind pace-setters Spain in their qualifying group for the World Cup, meaning even a play-off spot would be a tall order, meaning they can afford to cast an eye towards the future.

Keane’s last managerial job was at Ipswich Town, who sacked him six years ago. He began his career in the dugout with a two-year spell as Sunderland boss.
