EPL: Roy Keane picks manager Man Utd should replace Rangnick with

Former Manchester United captain, Roy Keane, has told the club to appoint Diego Simeone of Atletico Madrid as their next manager.

Keane, speaking on ITV, said Simeone is the “right kind of character” for the Premier League.

United have had three permanent managers since Ferguson retired at the end of the 2013 season and, more recently, Ralf Rangnick was appointed as interim boss with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’s permanent successor likely to be unveiled in the summer.

But nearly a decade on, United have never managed to build on Ferguson’s incredible legacy of 13 Premier League crowns.

But Keane is a big fan of Simeone who he admits is “having a difficult spell” in Spain.

He said: “Maybe Simeone, he’s the right kind of character.

“He’s having a difficult spell with Atletico. His race has maybe been run with them.

“Simeone, go and get him, he’s a big character.

“He’s done great things. He’s a great character, a big personality. He doesn’t mess around with players. Maybe someone like him coming into the club could work.

“It can soon change. I don’t think it’s all doom and gloom, there’s still good things going on at United, but they’ve got to get the manager.

“If the manager is not right, then the rest will just fall apart.”
