Kendall keen on Republic position

Howard Kendall is keen on the Republic of Ireland vacancy
Former Everton boss Howard Kendall has said he would like to be the next Republic of Ireland manager.

Kendall revealed he had made enquiries about succeeding Steve Staunton and that he would like ex-England star Peter Beardsley to be his number two.

"I have had long enough out of it now and I feel it would be perfect for me and hopefully for them," he said.

Kendall, 61, also managed in Spain and Greece and had spells in charge of Manchester City and Sheffield United.

His last managerial job in England was his second spell at Everton, which came to an end in 1998, but it was during his first spell at Goodison Park that the club enjoyed major success.

In a six-year period in the 1980s the club won the league twice, the FA Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup.

Kendall rejected any suggestion his time away from management would count against him.

"Look at the CV and go through the history of what I have done," he said.

Reports also indicate that former Liverpool, Blackburn and Newcastle manager Kenny Dalglish has expressed an interest in the post.
