Stoke City Make Approach For Northern Ireland Manager Michael O’Neill

Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland are still in the hunt to qualify for Euro 2020

In a short statement, the IFA said: "The Irish Football Association has been approached by EFL Championship club Stoke City who are seeking permission to speak to Michael O'Neill about their vacant manager's position".

Northern Ireland manager Michael O & # 39; Neill agreed to take over the Stoke City championship.

Stoke now find themselves bottom of the Championship, having lost 11 of their first 15 matches in the league this season.

Nathan Jones was sacked by Stoke at the start of November.

Northern Ireland are now ranked 34th and have two games remaining in their Euro 2020 qualification campaign - at home to the Netherlands on November 16 and away to Germany three days later.

O'Neill, who will double his £750,000-a-year salary at the Bet365 Stadium, is set to be joined by Northern Ireland head scout Andy Cousins.

French police clear migrant camp in Paris
Paris police chief Didier Lallement told reporters on the scene that he would not allow the camps to be re-established. Numerous migrants, who included families with children, are from Afghanistan or sub-Saharan Africa.

O'Neill will take over with Stoke bottom-of-the-table but with a hugely talented squad and money to spend in January.

O'Neill has done remarkably well with Northern Ireland, with the national team now sat in third place in their qualifying group for Euro 2020. It is better to be linked than not linked, let's be honest.

O'Neill has done a wonderful job with the Northern Irish since taking over in 2011 and guided them to their first major finals in 2016 when they went to the European Championship.

"It it is not a distraction for me".

After that, they were denied a World Cup finals spot only by a highly contentious play-off defeat to Switzerland and are now highly likely to feature in the Euro 2020 play-offs in March.
