The Waterford native will be aiming to steer Wexford to an improved campaign in 2019 after they finishing second from bottom in the First Division this season.

O’Sullivan will be assisted by League of Ireland stalwart David Breen. The former Wexford defender has been installed as the club’s new first-team coach.

“I am delighted to be appointed as the new manager of Wexford FC. Over time I hope I can pay the club back for showing faith in me,” O’Sullivan said.

“I can’t wait to get going and meet everyone. I am particularly looking forward to meeting the players. There’s no doubt David Breen and myself can work well together and bring this club forward and become more competitive on the pitch.

“We are both looking forward to working in the great facilities that the club have in place. Hopefully we can give the loyal fans a good brand of football to watch for the coming season.”
