Republic of Ireland manager latest: Who is the favourite to replace Martin O’Neill?

21 Nov

The Football Association of Ireland are searching for a new manager after Martin O’Neill and assistant Roy Keane left their roles on Wednesday.

Their reign lasted five years, guiding the Republic to the last-16 at Euro 2016, however some dreadful form in 2018 saw them move on.

Martin O’Neill was sacked on Wednesday

Ireland have failed to score in over five hours of football and have won just one of their last 11 matches.

So, whoever comes in has a huge task ahead of the qualification process for the 2020 European Championships.

Former Republic boss Mick McCarthy is already one of the favourites, with Tony Cascarino backing him on talkSPORT, and here we take a look at the other contenders to bag the job:

Brian Kerr – 14/1

Paul Cook – 12/1

Steve Bruce – 10/1

Sam Allardyce – 10/1

Stephen Kenny – 8/11

Mick McCarthy – 8/13
