Dundalk boss Giovagnoli and No2 won't make dugout for Arsenal clash

Dundalk manager Filippo Giovagnoli and his assistant Giuseppe Rossi won't be in the dugout for tomorrow's Europa League tie with Arsenal.

The Daily Star says Shane Keegan will be Dundalk's man in the technical area going toe-to-toe with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta tomorrow night.

But the Laois native is not the boss of the League of Ireland side taking on the Gunners in the Europa League.

He is the club's opposition analysis scout and as well as a coaching podcast host and manager of Irish amateur side Portlaoise AFC.

But he also just so happens to be the only man at Dundalk with a UEFA Pro Licence.

Dundalk's actual manager Filippo Giovagnoli and his assistant Giuseppe Rossi don't have the qualifications to be on the sidelines for a Europa League group game.
