FAI Board Give Their Full Backing To John Delaney

FAI Board Give Their Full Backing To John Delaney
By Gary Reilly

It's been a strange old week in the annals of Irish football history. A song, a denial, a retraction of said denial, an apology and now the official statement. John Delaney is going nowhere so like it or lump it.

Tony Fitzgerald (pictured above), President of the Football Association of Ireland spoke on behalf of the Association's board this evening to confirm that there is no intention to remove the chief executive and the matter is now closed.

Following recent coverage of the cyber bullying of his partner Emma and the fact that John has publicly apologised if he offended anyone for singing the nationalist song in question, we are happy to bring the matter to a close.

The Board is more than pleased with the way John Delaney is running the Association. He has done an enormous amount for Irish football. In the past year alone the winning of EURO 2020 bid for Dublin adds to a number of very important developments he has helped oversee during his tenure. We recently awarded him a contract extension to 2020 and he is fully deserving of that.

So that's that then.
