ROY Keane today admitted that he felt an affinity for Wayne Bridge, on the Chelsea left-back's decision not to play for England again.
Keane left the Republic of Ireland squad on the eve of the 2002 World Cup finals, after a fall-out with manager Mick McCarthy.
“I have some identity with players who aren't happy with the set-up,” explained Keane.
“However, I have no views on Wayne Bridge. I don't know what the big deal is? If he doesn't want to play for England, then he doesn't want to play.
“England have plenty of left-backs anyway.
