Noel King named interim Republic of Ireland boss

Noel King has been named interim coach of the Republic of Ireland.

The current Under-21s boss has been asked to take over as the FAI board continues to consider its options as it looks for a replacement for Giovanni Trapattoni.

King's appointment was announced after a board meeting on Monday evening, at which it was also agreed that former international Ray Houghton, who was involved in the last managerial appointment process, and Ruud Dokter, the FAI's newly-appointed high performance director should carry out a comprehensive assessment of the managerial market in an attempt to identify the best man for the job on a permanent basis.
