Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has ruled out the possibility of returning as coach of the Republic of Ireland - despite it being a "fantastic job".
McCarthy said: "I would be an ideal candidate because I did it for seven years with some success.
"It was a fantastic job and I loved every minute of it. For all the grief the FAI gets they let me get on with the job.
"It's got better in terms of the finance, the training facilities and the support, so whoever gets it will be fortunate, but I'm not considering it in any shape or form."
