Michael O’Neill appointed Stoke manager


Northern Ireland Manager Michael O’Neill has today been appointed Stoke City boss.

O’Neill becomes the fifth manager in just 22 months to take the helm at the bet365 Stadium.

However, O’Neill has a clause in his contract in which he’ll remain in charge until after Euro 2020 if they make it to the competition.

The former Northern Irish international has done an excellent job with the national team; the highlight being a first ever appearance for the Green and White army at the Euros in 2016.

O’Neill hasn’t managed club level Football in over eight years, with his last stint being in charge of Irish Premier League side Shamrock Rovers.

Today’s news comes a week after Nathan Jones was axed as Potters boss after their worst start in 119 years.

Stoke travel to Barnsley tomorrow in a massive relegation 6 pointer as the bottom two clubs face-off at Oakwell.
