Republic of Ireland under-21 manager Noel King will take temporary charge of the Irish senior squad as the FAI continue to search for a replacement to Giovanni Trapattoni.

The Football Association of Ireland released a press release announcing King’s interim appointment, with the former Ireland ladies boss taking the reins for the remaining World Cup qualifiers. “The FAI’s Board of Management met this evening to review the work it has been doing on the senior men’s team managerial appointment and to progress the next steps in the appointment process.

“After considering the views of people within the game and taking soundings from its constituent members, the board tonight decided that the next steps should include a comprehensive assessment of the market.

“It was agreed at the meeting that former international Ray Houghton, who was involved in the last managerial appointment process, and Ruud Dokter, the FAI’s newly appointed high performance director, should carry out this on-going assessment and report for the board.

“The board of management also decided that it will appoint its current Under-21s head coach, Noel King, as interim senior manager. Ruud Dokter will provide additional support.”
