Chelsea coach Anthony Barry takes up Republic of Ireland dual role

Chelsea coach Anthony Barry is taking up a dual role as assistant coach of the Republic of Ireland team.

Barry, who joined Chelsea at the start of this season, will remain in his existing position at the club and link up with the Ireland squad in the international windows.

"I'm delighted to join the Republic of Ireland coaching staff ahead of the start of the FIFA 2022 World Cup campaign," said Barry.

"The opportunity to work in international football is something I'm thoroughly looking forward to and I'm looking forward to working with manager Stephen Kenny, his staff and the squad. I'd also like to thank Chelsea for helping facilitate this opportunity."
