Trapattoni: what the players said

Robbie, Shane Long, Simon Cox and more pay tribute to Trap as his Ireland reign comes to an end.

Robbie Keane

I want to acknowledge the tremendous job that Giovanni Trapattoni did for the past five years for the Republic of Ireland national team.

In my view he has been a credit to the country and has carried himself with dignity as befitting a man who has given so much to world football.

It is always sad to see people go but we are all aware it is a part of professional sport. I personally want to thank him for what he has done and wish him well.
