Roy Keane 'would be interested in Nottingham Forest post'

Roy Keane would be interested in the managerial post at Nottingham Forest if he was approached by the club's new owners, according to the former Manchester United captain's representative.

Forest are looking for a new manager after the Kuwaiti-based Al-Hasawi family sacked Steve Cotterill.

I think Roy would be interested if he was approached. He is available and I think it would be a job that would appeal to him."

– Solicitor Michael Kennedy, who represents Roy Keane

Former Forest midfielder Keane was immediately installed as one of the favourites to replace Cotterill.

Solicitor Michael Kennedy, who represents the 40-year-old, says Keane would be interested in ending his 18-month exile from management to talk to the club he served for three years as a player.

The Al-Hasawi family intend to get Forest back into the top flight of English football and are keen to appoint a manager with Championship experience.

Keane has been out of management since leaving Ipswich in January 2011 when seven losses in nine games left them 19th in the Championship.
