Yes, I've seen the interview, but the above is what Keane is supposed to have said at the training ground during the argument. Now, where this came from originally I have no idea, but it has been doing the rounds in the papers. It may be true, it may not (which is why I used "allegedly"), but it has had heavy coverage.
What is true is that the other players have spoken about their shock at the language used towards McCarthy by Keane. It seems pretty clear that the players do not want him back, and since he did this interview but refused to apologise, it smacks of Keane trying to garner the sympathy vote.
As I said, on the issue of the facilities, he may well have had a point - and McCarthy has gone on record before criticising the FAI, but it would be a mistake for anyone to compare the FAI with the considerably richer FA and what they arrange for England. Nevertheless, his behaviour meant that his sacking from the squad was inevitable. What would you have McCarthy do? Just take the abuse and carry on? The manager has to be in charge. As with any job, you may disagree or dislike the person in charge, but if you tell them exactly what you think of them there is only going to be one outcome. Even Keane admitted that McCarthy had no choice but to send him home.
She's as nervous as a very small nun at a penguin shoot.
