Keane: Republic of Ireland needs coach who has "b****"

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane wants a no-nonsense coach to take charge of the Republic of Ireland.

Ireland will complete their World Cup qualifying campaign against Kazakhstan in Dublin on Tuesday evening knowing they have no chance of making it to Brazil next summer.

Former Tottenham, Liverpool and West Ham United striker Keane said: "I want someone who is an honest manager who doesn't mess around, understands how important it is to be involved in international level, someone who is very, very proud to be a manager and be proud of what we are trying to achieve in Ireland.

"Someone who is honest and someone who has b**** and doesn't take any s*** from anyone."
