Michael O’Neill’s time as Northern Ireland manager comes to an end

Michael O’Neill has stepped down as Northern Ireland manager after eight and a half years in the role.

A mutual decision was made for O’Neill to leave his position due to proposed revised international match scheduling by UEFA in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

“After careful consideration and following discussions with the Irish FA I feel it is only fair that now is the right time for me to step aside,” O’Neill said.
