    "I don't hide the fact I'm a big Manchester United fan. I grew up when United won everything, so I was lucky. I was born 10 minutes from the ground, so for me, it was Roy Keane. My dad was Roy Keane, Denis Irwin, but I was without a shadow of doubt Roy Keane. Obviously Eric Cantona was the king, as they called him. I was a bit young, but I watched the videos of people like him. But I actually grew up watching Roy Keane. I remember watching when they beat Juventus in Turin and he was banned for the final, and it was just... My dad was telling me how incredible it was. You won't see many things like that happen on a pitch, so it was definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, Roy Keane."

    and on meeting Roy Keane as a Republic of Ireland player

    “I was a bit nervous meeting him. I met him getting on to the plane, actually, and it is a bit of a shock. But at the end of the day, he is here to help, so you have got to get over that. I was a bit star-struck, to be honest with you, but you get over it. Well, sort of, you do. It's quite interesting to say Roy Keane is teaching you how to play football. I remember saying to my family, 'If Roy Keane rang, I don't think I'd know what to say, I don't think I'd be able to say no regardless of what state I was in'. When I met up with the manager a few weeks back and I said that to him, he said, 'If I'd have known that, I'd have told him to ring you straight away'. For me - for anyone, really - just to work with him, in terms of Irish players who have gone over to England and won things, he's got to be right up there for what he has done in football and Manchester United.”
