Paddy has opened the betting on the Next Ireland Women’s Manager after the FAI opted not to renew Vera Pauw’s contract last night.
Despite it being early days we’re expecting to see a surge of interest in this market which tells its own story of how far women’s football has come in the country since the beginning of Vera Pauw’s reign.
Given the importance of the appointment of Pauw’s successor we’re expecting it to take some time and have plenty of twists and turns in our betting before the FAI make their choice.
