Keane Returns as Manager of Ipswich Town

"I truly believe that I am joining a club that has the potential, ambition and infrastructure to once again be a Premier League side," Roy Keane said of the English League Championship's Ipswich Town. "The club's owner and chief executive impressed upon me their total focus on achieving this quest at the earliest opportunity and I can't wait to get started."

Keane, 37, has been out of work since leaving Sunderland in December.  He took Sunderland from close to the bottom of the Championship into the Premier League in 2006-07, his first season in charge.

Ipswich owner, Marcus Evans, said Keane had been chosen because of his record of getting results with Sunderland while playing an attractive passing game, in the Ipswich tradition: "He has extensive contacts in the game and is a proven winner who encourages his team to play the attractive football that Ipswich Town fans have come to expect. I believe he is the right man to take this club where we want to be -- the Premier League."
