Stephen Kenny Set For New Bumper 4-Year Deal After Commanding Win Against Gibraltar


IN SUCH A DIVISIVE world any group of people reaching a unanimous consensus is a relief which is why news of Stephen Kenny’s new 4-year deal with the FAI after obliterating Gibraltar last night has been so welcomed.

“Corner turned, green shoots, XG, upward trajectory, young team, give it time,” confirmed the FAI unveiling Kenny’s new deal which was greeted warmly by Irish fans with some so moved they immediately screamed while pulling their hair out.

“He’s had his doubters but I don’t hear them now after that decisive win! Name another team that’s done that to Gibraltar, name one!” added a jubilant Stephen Kenny backer, finally supplied with the ammo to silence his critics.

Sadly, the news represents a loss to the football pundit economy of close to €400mn, mainly lost by ex-players in the media suggesting giving former Ipswich manager and human volcanic eruption Roy Keane the job.

“Ah crap,” confirmed one agent representing Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Luis Enrique and other managers linked with the Irish job by Irish fans with a steady grip on reality.

“By the end of this new contract Stephen will have been in the job 7 years and then after we renew a further three years only then can we fully judge whether progress has been made or if he’s the right man for the job going forward,” concluded an FAI spokesperson.
