IRELAND BOSS KEEPS JOB AS FAI BACK TRAPATTONI

FAI
Welcome news for many Irish fans about Giovanni Trapattoni has come with the issuing of an official statement from the FAI on Wednesday night, declaring their continued support for the Italian boss.

The statement read: "While disappointed like everyone with the poor result and performance against Germany and understanding the frustration of some of our supporters, we believe the current position in the group means that qualification for Brazil in 2014 remains a realistic and achievable prospect.
"We reaffirm that Giovanni Trapattoni is to remain in charge of the national team."

The Italian’s position had come under severe pressure following a disappointing run of results and performances from the European Championships, where the team lost all three games, to a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Germany on Friday night.

"We believe the current position in the group means that qualification for Brazil in 2014 remains a realistic and achievable prospect" added the FAI.

After yesterday’s 4-1 win over the Faroe Islands, Trapattoni, 73, was adamant that he would stay on for the duration of the World Cup qualifying campaign.

The statement continued: "The Board recognises the depth of feeling surrounding the team, the performances, the results and the manager, reflecting the passion which everyone in Irish football has for the game and will continue to work closely with the manager."

I personally think it is right that the manager should continue in his job and I am happy with the FAI's decision, as he is the right man for the job.
