After 27 months at the helm as manager of Sunderland FC, Roy Keane has resigned.
The announcement was made at a press conference in Sunderland in the last few minutes.
The outspoken Cork-man has been under pressure since losing 4-1 at home to Bolton last weekend.
During the past month Sunderland have lost six of seven matches. This has led to Keane publicly questioning his own ability last weekend but that state cannot go on. Sunderland play at Keane’s former club Manchester United on this coming Saturday.
