IFA deny job offer claims

Published Add your comment

Irish Football Association chief executive Patrick Nelson has denied that Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers was offered the Northern Ireland job on a part-time basis.

Rodgers said on Thursday an official approach had been made by the IFA to Swans chairman Huw Jenkins which he had turned down to focus on his club role.

Nelson said no formal approach had been made for Rodgers although, despite some senior figures in the association insisting Nigel Worthington's replacement must be full-time, he appeared to suggest a part-time role was a possibility. He told the Belfast Telegraph: "I won't talk about individuals but what I can tell you is that nobody has been offered the job."
