Watch Out Martin O'Neill - Raymond Domenech Really Wants The Ireland Job

In what is sure to be one of the most amusing/unlikely news items of the day, Raymond Domenech has been speaking of his dream to manage Ireland. No, really.

In an interview with Ma Chaîne Sport, the former France boss, who has been described as being a bit kooky (if you're being kind) revealed that the Boys in Green have always been close to his heart, something which stems from the fans propensity to be a bit jovial even when we're not very good.

Luckily for us, Irish journalist Mark Rodden was tuning in to Ma Chaîne to hear what Domench had to say and it was wonderful.


We shouldn't joke to be fair. This is a man who brought France to the World Cup final in 2006, and if it hadn't been for that headbutt he might be a World Cup winner. However, what followed that World Cup will go down as one of the darkest periods in French football history.


They were woeful in Euro 2008 and in the World Cup in 2010 (that's all we're saying about it) they were a laughing stock. Domenech's selection policies famously included leaving players out based on their less than ideal star signs.

Get the cheque book out Denis O'Brien, there's a new man in town and he wants a pint with the fans.
