Giovanni Trapattoni insists he's not about to quit the Republic of Ireland job.
But Trapattoni insists: "Absolutely not. I continue my job.
"After this, if I was [Football Association of Ireland chief executive] John Delaney, I would say, 'Giovanni, continue because Giovanni has done a great job in these five years'.
"First was [the World Cup play-off in] France - and you know what happened. We changed again and we achieved [qualification for] the Euros, and we changed again.
"In the Euros, we played against Spain and Italy, who finished first and second.
"When I assess what we have done until now, we have to continue to do it. I promised change and promised to discover new players, young players, and the players have changed.
"I would like to have this new team at a club because I would have the possibility to work every day, every week with this team.
"I am sure I could develop this team, their quality and their experience very much."
