The Azerbaijan national team will need to be on their best behaviour, because Roy Keane could be about to become their new manager.

There are various reports across the national newspapers in England today that the Sky Sports pundit could be set to take over the country ranked 114th in the world, according to the latest Fifa rankings.

The former-Manchester United captain has earned himself a reputation as an outspoken, hard-hitting pundit.

This is not in complete contrast to the reputation he had in his playing days as an outspoken, hard-hitting midfielder.

However, there is been a belief that Keane has always been keen to make a return to management.

Keane’s last role was as part of the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest having previously been an assistant to Martin O’Neill during his time as Republic of Ireland manager.

He did lead Sunderland to the 2006/07 Championship title in his first role as a manager.

The report states that he is Azerbaijan’s first choice to become their head coach for the upcoming Nations League campaign, scheduled to take place in September.
