As football fans drool at the prospect of these two characters forming a partnership to manage Ireland, we gather together the best O’Neill and Keane jokes from Twitter.
You really get the feeling anything can happen as these two quite different, controversial stars take the reigns of the Republic of Ireland after the nation’s failure to qualify for World Cup 2014 in Brazil.
The Guardian reported that:
News of Keane’s possible comeback was met with a mixture of amusement and bewilderment among the Republic’s fans north and south of the border.
So… to the Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane jokes!
