Manchester United legend Roy Keane is a big fan of Everton midfielder James McCarthy.
Keane is working with McCarthy as Republic of Ireland assistant coach.
ﾡﾰIﾡﾯve seen James a number of times and that will come with age,ﾡﾱ he said. ﾡﾰI was in the same boat myself when I was at Nottingham Forest and youﾡﾯre surrounded by senior players and then you get a move to United.
ﾡﾰYouﾡﾯre working with Bryan Robson and you mature into the job so thatﾡﾯs a process James will go through. Itﾡﾯs nothing unusual for a young player.ﾡﾱ
Keane added: ﾡﾰIf heﾡﾯs playing week in, week out for Everton, the benefits will be for Ireland as well – but donﾡﾯt be trying to make him something heﾡﾯs not, that will take a bit of time.
ﾡﾰHe might never be a ranter or raver but sometimes itﾡﾯs not about that. Itﾡﾯs about making more demands of his team around him or demanding the ball in certain situations.
ﾡﾰAll that will come of age. Donﾡﾯt be impatient with him.ﾡﾱ
