Stephen Kenny Would Have Been 'Embarrassed' For Dundalk To Draw Man Utd In Europa League

Stephen Kenny Would Have Been 'Embarrassed' For Dundalk To Draw Man Utd In Europa League
By PJ Browne

Their Champions League hopes ended by Legia Warsaw during the week, Dundalk have the consolation of a place in the Europa League.

On Friday, they were handed a tough Group D draw in European football's second tier competition. They will face Zenit St. Petersburgh, AZ Alkmaar and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.

There was the possibility of Dundalk getting what some would have considered a dream tie - Man Utd. Instead, Jose Mourinho's side drew Fenerbahce, Feyenoord, Zorya Luhansk.

In the eyes of Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny, Man Utd were not the ideal draw. A game against Man Utd, played at the Aviva, would have seen a jam-packed stadium. It would also have seen more Man Utd fans present than those supporting Dundalk.

Kenny told the Irish Examiner that is a situation which would have left him 'embarrassed'.

I know people were wondering about drawing Manchester United but that’s not a game I would have particularly wanted personally.

I think I would have been embarrassed playing in Lansdowne Road with more people there supporting an English team than ourselves.

I would have found that difficult to comprehend.
