Roy Keane will wait until Martin O'Neill finalises his future before making a decision on whether to remain with the Republic of Ireland.
The management team's contract is due to expire at the end of Euro 2016 but O'Neill is due to meet with FAI officials to discuss a new deal, which will take in the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.
Keane has previously stated a desire to return to club management but he is happy to delay making a decision until after the upcoming European Championships.
"It wouldn't dictate my own future whether we won three games or lost three games. Looking at the bigger picture, I've got to do what's right for me, if there's a challenge there for me," Keane said.
"I'm enjoying the job. I said many times before, a lot will be dictated whether the manager wants me to stay on, what the deal is on the table, and your own self-worth. We'll see."
Keane admits he will only discuss his position once O'Neill has agreed whether to carry on for another two years.
"I'm open-minded. I've enjoyed working with Martin, the rest of the staff and the players. A lot will depend on the manager's situation," he explained.
"The FAI made it clear it was Martin's decision to bring me here. I'll be dictated by what Martin wants to do. He's an experienced manager, he's negotiating his deal and good luck, and we'll take it after that. If it's sorted out after that, I'll have a conversation with him.
"I've never been one to worry about contracts in life. Football has been very good to me. If it's not sorted out in the next month or two, so be it. If we stay on, fantastic. If we don't, then life goes on."
