According to Sky sources, Sam Allardyce is very interested in taking on the vacant Republic of Ireland job – but will only return to the world of football management when the right job, and therefore offer, comes to him.
The speculation over the Ireland role comes after Martin O’Neill left his position earlier this week, taking Roy Keane with him. The duo have been unable to lead the Irish to the position that they wanted to be on the international stage, and it seems like it’s time for a change of pace – or, so you’d think.
Allardyce is still shaking off the stigma of being dismissed from his role as England manager, although a lot of fans are still more than willing to see what he can really do on the world stage if given an extended period of time with a nation to manage.
Mick McCarthy is one of the other big names that has thrown his name into the hat for the job.
