Hopefully I will never be on the receiving end.” Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, whose particular brand of dressing room feedback was legendary, admitted he had to tone things down towards the end of his career with modern-day players. But Coleman believes the hard word can still have the desired effect. He said: “As players, you know when you have done wrong and if I have done something wrong and a manager has a go at me, I’ll take it on the chin because I think it’s good that they have pointed out that you have made a mistake. “I think it will be no different under these two managers.” Like many of the younger members of the squad, Coleman grew up watching Keane star for Manchester United and Ireland, and those memories remain fresh. The full-back said: “I think everyone will probably remember his [Champions League] game against Juventus where he got the yellow card and he dragged them through to the final. “I suppose that’s one that stands out, but nearly every game he played, he was brilliant, wasn’t he? It’s just great to have someone like that we can learn from.” The 42-year-old was charm personified on Wednesday afternoon as he met the media for the first time since rejoining the Ireland fold as assistant to new manager Martin O’Neill. However, he remains a man who demands high standards, although Everton defender Coleman revealed he is yet to bare his teeth after two days on the training pitch. For club-mate and Ireland midfielder James McCarthy, the prospect of working under O’Neill and Keane is a dream come true. The 23-year-old grew up in Glasgow supporting Celtic, the club managed so successfully by the former and for whom the latter played briefly at the end of his illustrious career. Asked about his memories of O’Neill’s team, he said: “The big nights, the European nights, the Old Firm – obviously, I have got good memories there. “Growing up as a Celtic fan and going to the games, it was always a very good team he had.” While O’Neill may be a hero, McCarthy is also relishing the opportunity to learn at the feet of a man in Keane who knows the art of central midfield play inside out. He said: “I have seen him play now and again – obviously, I was a young kid – and it’s brilliant to work under him, and Martin as well, the gaffer. It’s good to be here. “I have seen videos and clips and you just need to see what a dominant midfielder he was. Hopefully I can pick as many tips up as I can along the way. “We are two days in and already he has given me a few, ‘Do this’, ‘Do that’, but it is brilliant to be learning from such a footballing great. “To be honest, it’s only two days in and he has had a few chats here and there. He wants you to get on the ball, make tackles, make passes. “It’s a massive learning curve for myself to learn from such a massive footballing hero, to be honest, and long may it continue.” Seamus Coleman will be happy if he can avoid experiencing Roy Keane’s version of the hairdryer over the next two years or so.
