Stephen Kenny 'Feeling Very Well' After Health Scare In Sweden

Ireland U21 manager Stephen Kenny says that he is "feeling very well" after suffering a health scare in Sweden last month.

Kenny was examined by FAI medical staff after becoming unwell following his side's 3-1 European Championship qualifier win against their Swedish counterparts on September 10th. It was then decided he would remain behind to receive treatment at a local hospital.

"There's probably not a better health system you could have than in Sweden," Kenny said at a press conference on Wednesday.

It wasn't the worst place to not be well in.

I'm absolutely fine now.

I was in England last weekend and again yesterday. I was at a Checkatrade Trophy [match] last night in Walsall. I was over in Oxford on Saturday. I've been at matches over the last week.

The 47-year-old said that he would prefer not to discuss the details of the scare.

The Ireland U21s are currently top of their qualifying group with three wins from three.

They play Italy in Tallaght on October 10th and are then away to Iceland on October 15th.
