Keano Claims Air Clear For Lis Town Comeback

Keano Claims Air Clear For Lis Town Comeback



Roy Keane passed comment on Kevin Lisbie`s immediate future, today saying that the striker could be handed the chance to play for Town again.

Although all the evidence, and Lisbie`s negative comments on Wednesday, would suggest such a dramatic U-turn at this stage highly unlikely, Keane responded passively when asked if the former Jamaican international was recalled from his season-long loan with a view to playing.

"Yes, of course," the Irishman said in the Evening Gazette. However, 10-goal Lisbie had already stated a desire to continue playing for Colchester, at a club where he is clearly wanted and held in good stead by fans.

Recent comments from counterpart Aidy Boothryd however confirm that United feel they may not be able to afford to match Lisbie`s current salary. Speculation without source has also suggested he could be allowed to sign for Crystal Palace instead.

It certainly would be a sensation if he actually ends up being selected for Ipswich again, given that the initial reason for his Colchester return was down to a personal disagreement with former boss Keane.

On finding a potential resolution, Keane added: "That won`t be up to me. That will be up to the player himself. "

Cant see him playing for them again! He has said he doesn't really want to - due to the team being different and not being rated - and I cant really see Keane playing him if he thinks he aint in the right mind-frame.

+Would probably play him a couple of times and he wouldn't score then would be out the team without being given the chance to blend in
