Roy Keane has tried to clarify some of the comments he made midweek about returning to club management.

Speaking to the Irish Independent at the PFAI Awards Ceremony, Martin O'Neill's assistant said: "Our contract takes us up to the summer and a lot depends on what Martin wants to do."

“If Martin does want me to stay on, it would be hard to say no because I’m a loyal person. "I do want to get back in the ring and make the big calls. That could be two or four years away. And you get more money as the manager!"

While this isn't the definite yes or no answer some would like to see, it's pretty clear that there's every chance MonKeano will still be together at the helm after next summer's Euros.
