VIDEO: Roy Keane discusses Irish soccer fans and who inspired him during his career

Almost 25 years to the day of the infamous World Cup qualifier in Windsor Park, Republic of Ireland face Northern Ireland in an international friendly.

Having worn the green shirt in that game all those years ago, Roy Keane is now on the sidelines as Republic of Ireland assistant manager.

Speaking in the latest video in #TheCallUp series by Three Ireland, the former Man Utd star discusses the fairness of Irish fans, former leaders and when he is at his happiest.

Highlighting the merits of Irish supporters, Keane acknowledges the fans “can be critical” to the team’s success but “when you lose matches, you have to accept that.”

However, he adds “I generally think the Irish supporters have a good balance to it. If fans see the Irish players giving their all on the pitch, they will forgive mistakes and get behind the team.”

He continued: “It’s great knowing that when you’re a player and you’re going out on the pitch that the supporters will fight your corner”.
