Donegal celebrity chef Gary O’Hanlon has warned not to take any action against under-fire Irish soccer boss Stephen Kenny.
The FAI have lanched an investigation asking Kenny to explain the nature of a video that he showed to his squad before their 3-0 loss to England in Wembley.
The video was intended to be used as a motivational tool to players before they took to the field but went down badly with some.
There was a reference to the 1916 Easter Rising and the Proclamation of Independence and also footage of the 1995 friendly against England, abandoned because of rioting visiting fans.
But Ramelton chef O’Hanlon took to social media to launch a defence of Stephen Kenny, who has come under fire over the video.
Taking to Twitter, O’Hanlon said: “Don’t even think about f*****g over Stephen Kenny @FAIreland….he more than deserves immediate backup and support. Show the muppets that complained some history books.”
The FAI are understood to be looking for Kenny to explain his actions.
They said: “The Football Association of Ireland is aware of issues surrounding content shared with our senior men’s team ahead of the recent friendly against England at Wembley Stadium.
“The FAI is already looking into this matter internally as a matter of urgency to establish the facts. The FAI has no further comment to make at this time.”Tags:
