Kenny Stays On Until End Of Year

Stephen Kenny will remain in charge of the Republic of Ireland team for the final three games of their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign and the international friendly with New Zealand in November, the FAI has confirmed.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, FAI CEO Jonathan Hill said that Kenny's future will not be discussed until a review after those games.

Hill also addressed issues former WNT manager Vera Pauw raised following the decision of the FAI not to offer her a new contract following the side’s World Cup campaign.

Hill has acknowledged Pauw's contribution to football in Ireland and described her as a 'pioneer' in the women's game.

But he denied offering Pauw a new deal before the World Cup finals and rejected claims that Pauw's future was 'predetermined'.

He said 31 interviews were held in a review of Pauw's tenure - and there were differing views around 'training methods and strength and conditioning' - and some of these differing views were from the players."It was clear from conversations with Vera that she was not going to change her fundamental approach."
