Keane once put Henderson on the spot as a youngster, a story he still remembers today.

Henderson told Jamie Carragher's The Greatest Game podcast: It was a reserve game, I can remember we played Gateshead away which was like a pre-season friendly.

We were shocking, I think we got beat 2-0. Roy wasn't at the game but his coaching staff were there and he'd heard what had happened.

They got us back straight from the game to the academy and we were all in this lounge area and we were dotted about.

He walks in and I was a young lad so I'm sweating and he starts going 'This is your f****** problem, get together.'

So we get in a huddle sort of thing and he obviously has words to say and is not happy.

He has a go at some senior players, I remember [David] Meyler who he'd just signed, one of my good mates but he basically had a pop at him and a few others.

He then pointed at me and said 'Do you think you're good enough to play in the first team?'

After being on this rant, I was sweating buckets, there were all sorts coming off me, I'm a young lad and I looked up to Roy a lot as a player and he was my manager now.

To be fair I went 'yeah I do' and I think he was a bit like 'oh right okay' and he went 'hmmm' and was maybe having that because he heard in the game I'd still worked hard and wanted it and had the right attitude towards the game.

He said 'Good answer' and sort of moved on but I can remember walking out and everyone was sweating.

It was a short time after that game I got a phone call to say you're in the first team squad for a pre-season game at the Stadium of Light.

That's where it all started and I was delighted. He obviously liked me from that answer and it went from there."

Moyes is on 919 games after managing Preston, Everton, Manchester United, Real Sociedad, Sunderland and most recently West Ham, who he left in 2018.

"It's a big thing to get 1,000 games as a manager," the Scot told Sportsound.

"I've managed over 900 games. There's only two or three managers who have managed more in the Premier League. I've got 500 in the Premier League."

The 56-year-old has ruled out a move to either Hearts or Hibernian, with both clubs looking for new managers after the departures of Craig Levein and Paul Heckingbottom.

And he revealed he has had "lots of opportunities just now to go back to work but most of them have been in the English Championship".

"I've managed most of my career in the Premier League, so that's the level I expect to be at," he said on BBC Radio Scotland.

"In most of the years I've managed in the Premier League, it's been the top six, seven, eight in the Premier League so I'm hoping I can go back there."

Davidson spent last week visiting Saints and was also at Liverpool earlier in the season.

As well as Wolves, English Premier League rivals Leicester are also thought to be keeping tabs.

The 51-year-old replaces Jack Ross, who was sacked by the Black Cats on 8 October after winning five of their first 11 League One games this term.

Parkinson spent three years in charge of Bolton, winning promotion to the Championship in his first season.

He resigned as manager in August, with Wanderers bottom of the third tier after being deducted 12 points.

"It is both a privilege and immense responsibility to be appointed manager of this great club," Parkinson said.

"This is a good squad of players, and I relish the challenge of working with them to achieve our goal of promotion from League One."

The club's record post-war goalscorer has revealed he has made contact with owner Stewart Donald to declare his interest in the role.

Former Watford striker Phillips told The Sun: I have reached out to the owner and put my hat in the ring.

We'll just see what happens in the next 24-48 hours.

I've expressed to them that I am up here for the next three days, so I am around if they want to have a chat - as long as it doesn't get in the way of my golf!

People keep saying to me, 'You were great here as a player, if it doesn't work out as a manager, it might tarnish your reputation'.

But you can't go through life like that.

I'm sure Frank Lampard didn't think like that when he went in at Chelsea and look how it has worked out for him - he is doing a great job.

So I'd love to have a conversation."

He admits former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has now acknowledged he made a mistake in instead buying the then 20-year-old Everton starlet Francis Jeffers, who flopped at Highbury.

Phillips, 46, told The Sun: Arsene Wenger was keen to sign me.

On Monday night, I was at a tribute dinner for him and when I saw him, he made a remark that maybe he should have gone for me instead of Francis Jeffers.

It was a toss-up between me and Francis but because he was a bit younger, he opted for him.

That would have been a dream come true, to play for my boyhood club.

But at least he acknowledges now he perhaps should have gone for me - that makes me sleep easy at night!"

He could work alongside his former Black Cats team-mate Alex Rae, who has managerial experience from Dundee and St Mirren.

Max Power's 25-yard stunner after just nine minutes of play proved the difference at Bramall Lane.

Blades boss Chris Wilder was scathing over his team's performance while speaking after the game.

He said: "We didn't do enough and we didn't deserve to go through, we were second best.

"There would have been a time when I'd have had them in the dressing room dissecting that until 11:30pm, but we've got the European champions coming here at Saturday lunchtime and I'm not going to waste my time on it.

"I made 10 changes and Sunderland made eight changes and their changes were better than mine. Some of my players had an opportunity and they have not taken it, that's their problem. We move on."

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are leading the race to sign highly rated 15-year-old Pye.

Pye, who has played four times for Sunderland's Under-18 side this season, is also attracting interest from United, who were on the verge of bidding for him in the summer.

However, Arsenal are now a step ahead of the Red Devils for Pye's signature, who turns 16 in October.

The England Under-16 international can play at centre-back or full-back, but cannot move until the January transfer window when he will be 16.
