Ex-Republic of Eire manager Mick McCarthy will generate a £700,000 reward if they attain Euro 2021
The FAI produced the choice to honour the contractual settlement that Kenny would consider charge on August 1 and, with the perform-offs delayed until eventually September at the earliest, the managerial adjust was introduced ahead, which means McCarthy misses out on the likelihood to finish the campaign.
But main govt officer Gary Owens states all facets of McCarthy’s deal will be satisfied, and that includes a £1million payoff and £700,000 reward should they qualify. Having said that, his claim that McCarthy led Eire to the perform-offs is incorrect.
Owens stated: ‘We have honoured Mick’s deal. If we qualify for the Euros, we would not have a dilemma as it is really lucrative for us to qualify and I’d be content to pay back all the bonuses that people today should have if we get there, bearing in intellect that Mick obtained us to the perform-offs.’

In truth, Eire had the security net of a perform-off mainly because of the Nations League, for which O’Neill took charge prior to currently being sacked and changed by McCarthy in November, 2018.
McCarthy then missed out on automatic qualification right after finishing 3rd in their group powering Switzerland and Denmark, but they were usually possible to progress to the perform-offs, even though they unsuccessful to get a Nations League sport and were base of their 3-group pool.
