Neil Lennon is in the running for the Republic of Ireland manager's job
Neil Lennon says he respects the FAI’s approach in their search for a new Republic of Ireland boss but admits it’s been a “long process”.
While England U21 boss Lee Carsley remains the frontrunner to replace Stephen Kenny, former Celtic manager Lennon is believed to be a back-up option.
Lennon has spoken about his interest in becoming Kenny’s successor and the Armagh native (52) has met with FAI officials.
“You have got to respect the process. They have been very, very diligent in their approach to this. They’ve been very stringent and very professional,” said Lennon, speaking on the PLZ Soccer Show.
“When they have decided to make the call, we’ll know. But it has been a long process, but one that you have to respect.”Read on belfasttelegraph.co.uk
