Sir Bobby Does Not Want Roy!

Sir Bobby Does Not Want Roy!

Sir Bobby Charlton believes it might be a mistake to appoint someone from inside of the club's history to take over as manager.

Sir Alex is always quick to disperse rumours and repel questions about his retirement but it must happen sooner or later, he can't go on forever. Most United fans quite like the idea of a former legend taking over from him, with Roy Keane and Mark Hughes often mentioned, as both were hugely popular at Old Trafford and are now doing good jobs at their respective clubs.

However, Sir Bobby believes it might turn out to be a mistake to appoint one of them instead of a complete 'outsider'.

'I think their have been a lot of mistakes made by a lot of clubs in getting managers who have already been some part of the club in their career,' Charlton told The Daily Star.

'I don't buy that. If he's a good manager it doesn't matter who he is, where he comes from or even what nationality he is.

'In fact, in lots of cases, I'd say it was a hardship now to have a club background.

'People say only an old player could do it but maybe it's better to have a clean bill of health. Maybe give it to somebody who will really clear the decks.'


He quickly added that he didn't expect Fergie to retire any time soon but that's not the point now. Do you think he's right? Is it better to have a clean bill of health? Now that Hargreaves, predictably, has been voted our best signing so far, check out our latest poll about Charlton's claims!

He has a point but he BC is a bit of a ***** anyway. Keane is being too hyped up at the min and i myself was one of those guilty of singing his early praises at the start of the season, i hope it gets better for sunderland but they are a poor team
