Beasant shuns Irish talk

Published Add your comment

Former England goalkeeper Dave Beasant has played down speculation linking him with the vacant Northern Ireland manager´s job.

The 47-year-old has been part of the Irish coaching staff on a match-to-match basis for the past three and a half years but following former boss Lawrie Sanchez´s defection to Fulham, Beasant is reported to be an outside contender for the job behind Iain Dowie, Jimmy Nicholl, Nigel Worthington, Jim Magilton, Danny Wilson, Gerry Armstrong and Colin Clarke.

But Beasant said: "I didn´t know I had even been mentioned. I think what they are trying to do is keep the continuity with Northern Ireland. I don´t know what managers have been linked with the job, but it´s now an attractive job."
