KEANE’S FOCUS IS DRIVING TRACTOR BOYS ON
WILL KEANE is confident his new club, Ipswich, can string results together to lift them clear of trouble in the Championship.
The 25-year-old striker has joined the Suffolk club on loan from Hull until the end of the season and cited the example set by his parent club, who were in the bottom three but have been propelled up the standings after six wins from their last seven matches.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to come here and hopefully play some games and contribute to the team,” Keane said.
“I spoke to the manager (Paul Lambert) a couple of days ago and it was an easy decision for me.
“Despite the position in the league, I know it’s a great club. I know about the manager. I have played at the stadium. I’ve seen the training ground. The foundations are in place for Ipswich to be a top Championship club at least.
“I want to do everything I can for the cause here and score a few goals and help push the team up the league.
“I have seen it happen recently at Hull. You put a few results together and you can catapult up the league. It’s doable.
“They were down at the bottom not so long ago, but got a couple of wins and, before you know it, that was four or five wins and the confidence starts to come and you build momentum.”
