Next West Brom manager odds: Roy Keane and Chris Wilder early favs

Roy Keane is the early favourite to become the new West Brom boss after Steve Bruce was sacked with the club in the Sky Bet Championship relegation. zone.

Keane, 51, has not managed since leaving Ipswich Town in 2011 and was most recently involved in a coaching capacity as Nottingham Forest assistant manager in 2019.

He was strongly linked with a return to Sunderland only last season.

As a player Keane won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League with Manchester United.

His current focus has been on his role as a Sky Sports TV pundit, for which he has forged a reputation for being particularly scathing in his analysis of poor performances.
