Roy Keane to replace Fergie?: So Eric Cantona believes as Sunderland look like returning to the Premiership. But questions remain over whether Keane has really proven himself as a manager. Especially considering the recent loss to Colchester.

I can't see Keane heading back to Man U any time soon. Maybe once he has more experience, but I hope he stays with Sunderland for a couple more seasons.

It may take a few seasons but I would love to see Keane back with United. Through the better part of a season he's shown his managerial chops, bringing Sunderland from the bottom to frontrunners. It's an amazing accomplishment really, and Keane is fortunate Quinn let him bring in players with whom he was familiar.

I think its very much a possibility if Keane can keep Sunderland up for more than one season. But even Cantona doesn't expect the Devils to need a new boss soon: [Cantona] expects Ferguson to remain in situ for some time yet. "Ferguson keeps himself young and needs football to stay young and football needs him."
