Arsenal legend Brady backing McCarthy for Ireland job

Arsenal legend Liam Brady believes Mick McCarthy should be again appointed Republic of Ireland coach.

McCarthy is currently in charge of Ipswich Town.

Brady told RTE Radio: "For me it would be Mick McCarthy. I don't know what his contractual situation is at Ipswich, but what I do know is that he's demonstrated before that he's capable of doing the job.

"He has broad shoulders, he had to put up with an awful lot of messing when Saipan happened and people turned against him.

"Most of the media turned against him, public opinion turned against him because of how popular Roy Keane was. But the man got on with it.

"He's demonstrated since then he's a very, very capable manager. I don't know if it's possible to get him, but he would be number one on my list."
