Keane – I Would Love To Swap With Swansea

Keane was a little surprised to hear Swansea City fans voice their discontent after the 0-0 draw with his Ipswich side on Saturday – a result that left the Swans 5th in the table – 5 points clear of the non play off spots.

Speaking to the Evening Post, Keane said "You will always get a few moans and groans when there are no goals in a game

"The trouble is that football fans forget things very quickly. You give them a bit of success and they want more straightaway. I would like to swap positions with Swansea, but fans forget and they get impatient.

"I think that with the season Swansea are having, they should be very pleased because they're a club making progress.

"They have a great chance of getting into the play-offs and in the play-offs you never know what can happen.

"If you think I am fearful of losing my job, don't kid yourself.

"I have got a good wife and five kids and if the club want to move me on, they will move me on. But speculation doesn't keep me awake at night.

"I am confident that we can have a better season next season, but sometimes you don't get that time."

Keane declared himself happy with a point, suggesting his team had shown the sort of defensive grit required more often this season.

"We were a bit more solid here and we have to do that more often," he said. "We could have done more in possession, but in terms of our set-up and work-rate, I'm pleased."
