Martin O'Neill issues new Keane statement: 'Roy has my full support'

The Irish manager also says Keane has the support of the FAI.

MARTIN O’NEILL HAS issued a new statement this morning reasserting his “full support” for assistant manager Roy Keane.

Keane was involved in an incident outside the Ireland team hotel yesterday.

In a video statement issued by the FAI, O’Neill says:

“The FAI and I have been fully briefed about the circumstances of what happened at the team hotel last night.

“Roy asked that the Gardaí be called and he has notified them of what had happened.

“While this process is ongoing, we are unable to say more at this point.

“However I can say that having been made aware of the facts that Roy has both my full support and the full support of the FAI and John Delaney.

“We are now focused as we have been all week on the game in hand and we won’t be saying anything more about this issue.”
