Keane: ‘I’ve done nothing yet’

ROY Keane, even in his darkest days last season, never felt that his days as a manager were numbered.

Keane is currently on the crest of a wave, with his Ipswich Town side flying high in third spot after an unbeaten run stretching to six league and cup games.

But the Town boss is not a man to be fooled by results, or league positions.

He never felt that he had mastered the role of a football manager at his previous club Sunderland, despite guiding the Black Cats into the Premier League, so he’s not going to start resting on his laurels at Portman Road.

“I’ve done nothing in the game,” insisted Keane.

“Even when I got lucky a little bit at Sunderland, with the players and the staff, and we got promoted, I never felt for one minute that I had it cracked.

“Just as last year, with all the doom and gloom (no win for first 14 league games), I never thought that I was finished as a manager.
