Roy Keane has confirmed that he took a pay cut to stay on as Ireland assistant manager after being named as Aston Villa assistant manager during the week. Keane also confirmed his days as a pundit are numbered for the time being with his coaching career taking priority over trying to stay awake next to Adrian Chiles. Don't feel sorry for Roy when he opens up his monthly pay packet though as he explains when asked if he did take a pay cut:

“Of course – but don’t lose any sleep over it.

“That’s why it took a few weeks to get things sorted out here – there’s always some give and take.”

"I'm not saying I wouldn't get back into it but I'd done my time. I felt a bit awkward doing one or two matches where there were Irish players, I think there was maybe a little bit of conflict there, Good luck to Gary Neville but we're all different. I just felt I didn't want to have any compromise regarding my role in football with punditry."


It wouldn't be Roy without a slight dig at someone eh?
