No stage fright for Harry
BOURNEMOUTH midfielder Harry Arter has admitted that Roy Keane is not as scary as he thought he would be!
Arter got his first taste of working with Keane before the Republic of Ireland’s 1-1 draw against Poland last weekend, when he was an unused substitute.
Arter, 25, said:“To people on the outside, he has this scary personality. But he was just like a normal man. He just wanted to help the team and was always there for guidance. I really enjoyed working with him.” Arter and the rest of the squad had a night out before the Poland game watching ‘I Keano’, the play based on Keane’s controversial departure from the Ireland camp before the 2002 World Cup in South Korean and Japan.
“I don’t think Mick McCarthy will be going to watch it in a rush,” added Arter.“It was a good show and really funny. “I didn’t make eye contact (with Keane) just in case there was a scene that maybe brought back a memory which annoyed him – I just kept my eyes firmly fixed on the stage!”
