Former R.O.I. boss acknowledges ‘picking’ National allegiance is unfair…

Wed 10 August 2011, 3:52pm

Brian Kerr, Republic of Ireland Football manager from 2003-2005, has admitted publically that the current conveyer belt of defections from Northern Ireland to the Republic doesn’t ‘sit right’ with him. He goes as far as saying that

 It’s not a good situation

and

I hope it will change, because it’s not good for a lot of reasons

Brian also professes a belief that the Republic is manipulating the Belfast Agreement for selfish disadvantage, and sympathy with the Irish Football Association. Barry McElduff criticised Mr Kerr’s sense of ‘Irishness’. Brian Kerr was born in Dublin in 1953 and has also managed Shelbourne United (Dublin) and Shamrock Rovers (Dublin) at a reserve level, and Drogheda United (Louth) and St Patrick Athletic (Dublin) at a senior level.
