Favourites for Republic of Ireland manager

After it was confirmed that manager Martin O’Neill and his assistant Roy Keane parted company with the Republic of Ireland earlier today, we’ve taken a look at who are favourites for the job at the Aviva Stadium.

The pair were appointed back in 2013 and then took the international side to the last 16 of Euro 2016.

However, they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, losing to Denmark in the qualifying playoffs stage, as well as not winning a competitive game this year and ended up getting relegated from their Nations League group.

Football Association of Ireland chief John Delaney said: “There have been many highlights during Martin’s reign – none more so than Euro 2016 in France, which will live long in the memory of all Irish supporters.”
