This should be interesting.

Roy Keane is set to make an appearance as a pundit on Sky Sports this weekend.

The former Manchester United captain will be in the Sky studio for coverage of Liverpool’s game against United, and Arsenal’s match against Southampton.

Keane will join Sky Sports regulars Graeme Souness, Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville for his first appearance as a pundit on the channel since retiring from playing in 2006. Coverage gets underway on Sky Sports Premier League at 12:30 pm.

Keane has been out of work since leaving his post as Republic of Ireland assistant manager last month, where he worked alongside Martin O’Neill for five years.

The United midfielder was Sunderland manager between 2006 to 2008. He helped the club win promotion to the Premier League and secure their status in the top-flight.

After that, he was Ipswich Town manager until leaving the job in January 2011.

He has worked as a pundit for ITV since 2011, covering Champions League and international games. He has also appeared as a pundit on the BBC.

During the summer, SportsJOE asked Neville if he would like to work with Keane on Sky Sports. The former United defender was open to the idea and he’ll now get his chance on Sunday afternoon.

Keane should have plenty to say about United’s current troubles under Jose Mourinho.
