Former Portsmouth boss in the frame for Republic of Ireland job

Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane have resigned from their roles with the Republic of Ireland

Former Ireland manager Mick McCarthy is now the favourite to land the job.

The 66-year-old and his assistant, former Manchester United captain Roy Keane, stood aside after they could not stop Ireland being relegated from Group B4.

The association praised the manager's contribution, stating: "O'Neill oversaw 55 games for Ireland during a five-year period and enjoyed unforgettable wins over World Champions Germany, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Italy, Austria and Wales".

It was against the Danes that Ireland's World Cup qualification campaign ended embarrassingly in November previous year, as they were trounced 5-1 at home in the second leg of the play-offs having secured a 0-0 draw on the road.

Arter has since returned to the fold and made peace with Keane while O'Neill had previously expressed his confidence that he was capable of steering the current squad to Euro 2020. I've got sympathy for him but it simply hasn't worked and it's the right time to change'.

"It wasn't necessarily a case where he would take the session and we're doing shape (work) or, "if the ball goes there, we're all pushing up lads".

Asked about the Ireland job this morning, Kenny described managing Ireland as the "greatest honour".

"We just don't have enough quality players to compete at the top end of the global game and that is especially the case in the attacking end of the team".

"You'd have a few players thinking "we'll play this shape", or someone else thinking something else".

The defender also had some kind words to say about the good times during O'Neill's stint as Irish manager. It is weird, but like I said, it didn't happen all the time.
