Keane firmly behind Trapattoni

Robbie Keane remains confident that Giovanni Trapattoni will stay as Republic of Ireland manager after the side recorded their second World Cup qualifying group win on Tuesday.

• Blog: Trap gets breathing space

Trapattoni came under increasing pressure in the wake of his side's 6-1 loss against Germany on Friday, with reports suggesting his days as Ireland boss were numbered.

However, some of that pressure was relieved this week after Ireland defeated Faroe Islands 4-1 in Torshavn thanks to goals from Marc Wilson, Jonathan Walters, Darren O'Dea and an own goal by Pol Johannus Justinussen.

Ireland are third in Group C on six points, a point behind second-placed Sweden, having played three matches. Their next game is against the Swedes on March 22, 2013.

Asked whether he expected Trapattoni to lead the nation into the rest of the campaign, Keane said: "Of course, yes. Listening to his press conference yesterday, first of all, he's not going anywhere.

"He knows that, with the squad of players we have, we are quite capable of qualifying. I believe we can qualify - there's no question about that.

"I am sure the manager believes that too, so I believe that the manager will be there with us.

"It's out of my hands, but I am sure every player would probably say the same - we want him to stay and continue this campaign."
