Limerick proved their high expectations with Roy Keane offer

Limerick FC’s board certainly showed their desire to recruit at the top level of management as they went after Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane to replace Martin Russell.

In The Irish Independent today, Dan McDonnell wrote that the Munster side apparently were willing to offer the Cork man €250,000 per annum to take the job.

In the piece it said that he wants to return to management at some stage, but he is happy in his current post and combining the two roles would have been difficult if he had decided to accept Limerick’s lucrative offer.

The League of Ireland club announced Neil McDonald as their new manager yesterday on a two and a half year deal.
