Roy Keane drops a hint about where his managerial future lies

Carl Kinsella

Roy Keane has tried to clarify some of his recent comments about a potential return to club management.

Speaking at the PFAI Awards Ceremony, Martin O’Neill’s assistant said: “Our contract takes us up to the summer and a lot depends on what Martin wants to do.”

“If Martin does want me to stay on, it would be hard to say no because I’m a loyal person. “I do want to get back in the ring and make the big calls. That could be two or four years away. And you get more money as the manager!”

While this isn’t the definite yes or no answer some Ireland fans might like to see, it’s pretty clear that there’s every chance the pair will still be together at the helm after next summer’s Euros.
