Keane hints at Ireland comeback

DUBLIN: Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane may play for the Republic of Ireland again despite retiring from international football, he has told an Irish newspaper. 

Keane, who stormed out of his country's World Cup training camp in Asia after a bust-up with former coach Mick McCarthy, said he had had a positive conversation with new national boss Brian Kerr. 

“Speaking to Republic manager Brian Kerr was good,” Keane told the Irish edition of the Sunday Times newspaper. 

“You know as we were finishing our conversation Kerr said 'You never know what might happen down the road'. 

“Well, I believe that, and still think never say never. There are people who placed bets on Roy Keane never playing for Ireland again. If I were the bookies, I wouldn't pay out just yet.” – AFP
