Next Ireland Manager Odds

It might well be the case that the FAI are looking to replace Stephen Kenny sooner rather than later, with the Republic of Ireland manager having recently seen his team relinquish the lead at Portugal to lose 2-1 before a disappointing draw against Azerbaijan. It now seems virtually certain that the Irish won’t qualify for the 2022 World Cup and we look at the potential contenders who could replace Kenny.

We have yet to see a manager leave his job in the Premier League this season, but could we see an international manager lose his job? Stephen Kenny looks to have an uncertain future in charge of the Republic of Ireland team, with reports suggesting that he would be relieved of his first-team duties should his side fail to beat Serbia in their latest World Cup qualifier, with bookmaker Paddy Power having already put together a next Republic of Ireland manager betting market in anticipation of this eventuality.

Some might be surprised to see Roy Keane heading the latest betting market, with the 50-year-old having been assistant manager to Martin O’Neill between 2013-2018, although the former Manchester United midfielder hasn’t been seen in a dug-out since 2019 and it might be that he passes up any opportunity that comes his way to pick up a team who are currently in the doldrums.

Much comes down to who actually wants to take a role which feels a bit like a poisoned chalice at the moment, with Neil Lennon also trading at single figure odds and the former Celtic manager is currently a free agent.

Keith Andrews has also been linked with the job although the former Republic midfielder has never held an official coaching or manager’s role and it might be that the FAI have to look elsewhere.

Would Roy Keane Consider a Return to Republic?

It would be something of a surprise to find Roy Keane taking charge of the Republic of Ireland team, with the 50-year-old having endured something of a strained relationship with the FAI for much of his adult life. Keane was regularly at loggerheads with the FA of Ireland during his playing days, although he did return to partner Martin O’Neill following his retirement.

Keane earns plenty of money by being an outspoken media pundit onvarious channels and it might be that he passes up the opportunity to return to the international scene considering that there probably needs to be root and branch review of the situation as far as the Irish national team are concerned. Keane is 9/2 with Paddy Power to replace Kenny as manager.

Could Northern Irishman Neil Lennon Take Charge?

As a player, Neil Lennon represented Northern Ireland on 40 occasions and it would be interesting to see whether the 50-year-old would cross the border and become the next Republic of Ireland boss. He does have a long-standing association with Celtic after playing 214 times for them before two managerial stints at the Old Firm club.

Lennon is 6/1 with Paddy Power to take charge of the Republic team and it was only recently that he stood down from first-team duties at Celtic after a disappointing campaign which saw Rangers win last season’s SPL title, so he’s still an active manager who could be interested in a vacant position like this one.

Keith Andrews Could Be a Risky Republic Appointment

Keith Andrews is a very eloquent talker when it comes to the game and we’ve regularly seen him making media appearances when it comes to games involving the Republic of Ireland. However, Paddy Power think that he’s also a viable contender to take charge despite a distinct lack of experience when it comes to managing football teams.

There might be a lack of quality applicants should the role come available and Andrews would already have credit in the bank due to the fact that he turned out on thirty-five occasions for his country, although perhaps he would be more likely to take an assistant role instead. Andrews is 13/2 with Paddy Power to be Ireland's next manager.

Robbie Keane and Damien Duff Next in the Betting

Next in the betting to replace Stephen Kenny comes Robbie Keane and Damien Duff. There’s an obvious link when it comes to both players, with Keane having made an astonishing 146 appearances for Ireland where he managed to score on 68 occasions. Having recently been assistant manager of the team between 2018-2020, there could be some validity in him taking the job.

Duff was actually the assistant manager of the Republic of Ireland team between 2020-21, with the former Blackburn and Chelsea winger having previously been in the dugout at Celtic and he’s another former Irish player who might be interested in trying to improve matters as the FAI look to Euro 2024 and beyond.
