Ipswich Town goalkeeper Marton Fulop is 'sad' about Roy Keane's departure and does not have a bad word to say about his former manager.
Keane was dismissed by Ipswich last Friday after less than two years in the job and Paul Jewell has been appointed as his replacement.
Fulop was signed by Keane for both Sunderland and Ipswich, and acknowledged the Irishman has two sides to his character.
However, the Hungarian insists he has never had any issues with Keane and is disappointed he has left Portman Road.
"I'm sad about Roy Keane's departure and about the fact that he couldn't be successful," Fulop told www.origo.hu.
"He has two sides. One is a very kind man, but after the games sometimes he said things that he maybe shouldn't have. But this is true for all managers.
"He signed me for two clubs, so I can't say any bad words about him. I've never had problems with him."
Fulop conceded seven goals in Sunday's FA Cup defeat at Chelsea and is hoping for a better experience in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final against Arsenal on Wednesday evening.
He added: "I don't think I can be blamed for any of the seven goals we conceded, what's more I made some great saves which prevented an even bigger loss.
"I've had three games in my career against Arsenal and I conceded only one goal, so this is a completely different situation for me if I compare it to Chelsea.
"What's more, when I made my Premier League debut, we won 1-0 against Arsenal, so I have great memories."
