Robbie Keane on Roy's breastfeeding comments: 'He is used to it, he has bigger t**s than me'
Robbie Keane has hit back at his namesake Roy following the Corkman's comments about breastfeeding yesterday with a comical retort of his own.
When questioned on Robbie's availability yesterday following the birth of his second son, assistant manager Keane quipped: "Why wouldn’t he be? He didn’t have the baby, did he? Unless he’s breastfeeding. Robbie’s had a game and has been travelling.”
Robbie Keane joined up with the squad today after arriving from LA last night and when asked did he hear Roy's comments he came back with a joke of his own.
"Well he is used to it, he has bigger t**s than me," said the Tallaght man.
Yesterday Republic of Ireland assistant boss Roy Keane was asked whether Robbie for the showdown with Group D leaders Germany at the Aviva Stadium, Ireland's assistant manager said: "Yes, why wouldn't he be?
"He didn't have the baby. Unless he's breast-feeding he should be all right."
Frontman Keane was part of the team which secured a famous 1-1 draw with the world champions courtesy of John O'Shea's injury-time strike in Gelsenkirchen in October last year, and a repeat at the Aviva could have a major say in whether or not they make it to the finals in France next summer.
That result came amid an uncharacteristically slow start to the campaign by Joachim Low's men, who have since put together a run of five successive qualifier victories.
