Roy Keane has seemingly dismissed Jack Grealish’s chances of a Republic of Ireland call up, amid reports that England plan to do the same…
Roy Hodgson confirmed to BenchWarmers that the revelation had all but ended his England career. The Irish nation were justifiably outraged at the news of Grealish’s exploits and Roy Keane led the stinging criticism. “As far as I’m concerned he’s a lightweight, so he’s not Irish. Paul McGrath once drained the Shannon river, filled it with Whiskey and drank the whole thing in one go. Now that’s a real Irishman.” said the Ireland
manager assistant manager.
The news comes after a difficult week for the Villa man as the young winger was spotted, passed out drunk, on the streets of Tenerife:
When it was put to Keane that both countries’ current stance on Grealish would mean he would never play at a World Cup finals, Keane was unmoved. “He can play for the Isle of man, for all I care. If he’s good enough, he should be able to, single-handedly, get the Isle of Man to the World Cup. Just like I did, for Ireland in 2002. He should probably try and stick around a little longer though…” Keane said, before bursting into tears.
As Martin O’Neill faced further tough questions on his Ireland future due to Ireland’s recent poor performances, Keane launched another attack on Grealish: “And another thing. What kind of man inhales Nitrous Oxide? He should be smoking cuban cigars… like a man. Paul McGrath once rolled Fidel Castro into a cigar and smoked him. Now that’s a real man.”
