Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane has said that not continuing his education while making his football breakthrough is a major regret of his.

Speaking of the launch of the Cork City Patronage Scheme in UCC tonight, the former Manchester United and Celtic player was a guest speaker and spoke about a number of topics including education and the League of Ireland.

After the theme of education and sport was introduced, Keane used the opportunity to highlight one of his regrets in life.

“Getting an education and playing football is allowed,” he said. “ It's one of my regrets.”

Irish manager Martin O’Neill and his assistant are expected to cast a far closer on the domestic league than his predecessor Giovanni Trapattoni ever did and Keane acknowledged the grounding the league gave him in his glittering career.

“Playing League of Ireland was a great education, a fantastic experience for me,” he told the audience.

Keane played 23 games for Cobh Ramblers during the 1989-1990 season before signing for Nottingham Forest.
