Trapattoni plans return to management

Giovanni Trapattoni is planning to continue his coaching career after parting ways with the Republic of Ireland.

• Delaney: Trapattoni's tumultuous reign

• Greatest managers: Trapattoni

Trapattoni’s career in management has spanned five decades and the 74-year-old has no intention of finishing after a five-and-a-half year spell as Ireland boss ended with defeat against Austria.

“I’m leaving Ireland, but I’m not leaving football,” Trapattoni told Italy’s ANSA news agency. “I want to carry on coaching. It’s just that, from today, I am no longer manager of Ireland. We left mutually with great fair play. Now I’ll look at other possible jobs without precluding anything.”

Trapattoni added that his experience as Ireland coach would be hard to forget, if only for the way he was treated by the fans.

“We realised why they have such a renowned reputation internationally and they have our maximum respect,” he said.

Although his term may ultimately be viewed negatively -- Ireland did reach Euro 2012, but lost all three of their group games there – FAI chief executive John Delaney believes Trapattoni leaves Ireland “in a better state” than when he arrived in 2008.

“I think he felt he had done a good job,” Delaney said. “He genuinely believes there’s a group of young players available to the next manager. Most people in Irish football would agree that he’s left Irish football in a better state.”

While Trapattoni, who began coaching in 1974 with AC Milan, looks forward to the next chapter in his own career, Ireland commence their search for a manager who can see them to the end of their World Cup qualifying campaign and start preparations for a more successful bid to reach Euro 2016.

Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy, who led Ireland to the 2002 World Cup, is emerging as a frontrunner, and has already earned the seal of approval of Delaney.

“Mick has done a very good job for Ireland and in England as well,” he said. “We have to look at who can get the best out of the players available to us.”
