Poll: should Giovanni Trapattoni now get a new contract?

John Delaney insists he’ll sit down with Trap after qualification is achieved. Should the Italian be rewarded with another deal?

IRELAND ARE ON the brink of qualification for a major tournament for the first time in 10 years.

But doubts still remain around the future of the man who steered the Boys in Green to that point, Giovanni Trapattoni.

The Italian has been the subject of much criticism because of this side’s style of play since he took over 41 games ago. But having narrowly missed out on a World Cup spot, the Irish have one foot in next summer’s European Championships.

John Delaney, the FAI chief executive, admitted that he has yet to speak to the coach about a new deal insisting that post-qualification is the correct time to sit down however.

That will surely be achieved in little over 24 hours’ time, as Estonia chase a four-goal deficit at Lansdowne Road.

So, should Trap then be rewarded with another contract?

Poll Results:

Yes, of course (768)
No, Bill (249)
Don't know (93)

Are England coming to Dublin for a friendly next year?
