​Ireland boss O'Neill: Keane and Arter ready for reconciliation

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill says that both Roy Keane and Harry Arter are ready for a reconciliation.

An audio clip was leaked from player Stephen Ward, who described in detail a row between assistant manager Keane and Arter.

Boss O'Neill believes the two will be able to resolve their issues for the betterment of the team.

"I think there might be a bit of a reconciliation between Roy and Harry. Certainly Roy is up for that," O'Neill said to Sky Sports.

And O'Neill has no sympathy for Ward, whose audio clip was leaked to the press.

On the issue, O'Neill said: "Today... probably not [any sympathy for Ward]. Tomorrow... probably not also.

"He has been betrayed by some of his friends, who he has known for a long, long time. That will be a disappointment for him."
