The Black Cats were languishing at the foot of the Championship when Keane took over last August and the 35-year-old admits he made mistakes in his first few months in charge.

However, under Keane's stewardship, the Wearsiders staged a remarkable recovery to not only drag themselves back into the Premiership at the first attempt, but as champions.

He said: "I was comparing a lot of being a manager to when I was a player. It's a million miles away.

"The difference is unbelievable, but maybe the more experience I get, the more I enjoy it.

"I don't think it will ever be as hectic as it was last season, especially in the months after I took the job.

"When I took the job, with the transfer deadline approaching and everything else, there was that much going on I didn't have time to take it in, never mind enjoy it."
