Roy Keane, Aston Villa’s assistant manager and Republic of Ireland assistant coach, has stepped down from his position at Aston Villa after less than five months in the role.
“Ultimately, my roles with Villa and Ireland and combining my commitment to these have become too much. It isn’t fair to either Villa or Ireland, so I’ve made this decision. I’d like to thank Paul for giving me a great opportunity to come to a brilliant football club, I’ve really enjoyed my experiences at Villa and I wish the management team, the players, the supporters and the Club nothing but the best going forward,” he said in a statement.
The Villa board was also quick to thank Keane for his efforts at Villa Park.
Tom Fox, CEO of the club who was full of thanks said, “We thank Roy for his time at the Club and we wish him the best with Ireland. Our focus now will be on working with Paul to identify the right person to work alongside him and to help us continue on our journey to return the Club to its rightful place in the Premier League.”Follow Us on Social Media
