Saying that he feels obliged to keep the atmosphere among the squad lighthearted, Roy Keane today admitted that he’s considering storming out of Ireland’s Euro 2016 camp for the craic.
Speaking to journalists at the Irish squad French training base, the former Manchester United man revealed that he might soon leave the camp in a blaze of expletives in a bid to shake things up a bit.
“Yeah, I’ve thought about it, and why not? The lads need a little light relief every now and then to distract from the tournament. I’ve spoken to [Ireland manager] Martin [O’Neill] about it and he’s fine. So I might give it a go,” said the assistant manager, adding that he was also weighing up whether to tell O’Neill to “shove it up his bollocks” as he departs.
“Don’t think for a second I won’t do it if I feel it’s right. It’ll be a bit of fun and the lads should enjoy it.”
At press time, Keane’s fake anger had reportedly metamorphosed into genuine fury as he reminisced deeply about the summer of 2002.
