Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane leave ROI

The Republic of Ireland are on the search for a new manager this morning after parting company by mutual agreement with Martin O’Neill and Roy Keane.

The FAI confirmed the board will meet ‘promptly’ to discuss the process of recruiting a new manager. Dundalk┬ámanager Stephen Kenny, former Republic boss Mick McCarthy and Steve Bruce have all been mentioned as potential successors.

In a statement to confirm the decision, Delaney thanked O’Neill, Keane and the rest of the backroom team for their “impact” on the Ireland team.
