Michael O'Neill or Neil Lennon could be next Northern Ireland manager

Other candidates for the job include Jim Magilton and Iain Dowie.

The former Northern Ireland midfielder has a background in Greek football, where he has managed Omonia Nicosia. He also had spells at Celtic and Bolton Wanderers. Lennon, who was born in Lurgan, has a history of success in managerial roles. He was sacked from Omonia Nicosia in 2012 after only seven months. His previous managerial roles include St Johnstone, where he achieved success before being sacked last year. In February 2021, he returned to management as manager of Kilmarnock, where he won five championship titles and two Scottish Cup doubles.

O'Neill has experience in international football, and he has a master's degree in sports management. If he is appointed as Northern Ireland manager, he could achieve instant success. His efforts in developing young Northern Irish prospects may also prove beneficial to the team's future. However, it is important to remember that managing a professional team represents a huge step up from domestic football.

Stephen Robinson is another candidate for the role. He is a Scottish club manager and a former Northern Ireland player. He led Motherwell to third in the Scottish Premiership last season and has signed four new players in the close season. His ambition is to take Motherwell to the Europa League group stage next season.

There is no shortage of candidates. Michael O'Neill has been in charge for almost a decade. In that time, he has led Northern Ireland to the Euro 2016 finals, but his international career has largely remained unfinished. After leaving his Stoke City job, he could easily become the next Northern Ireland manager.

Despite his storied career in football, Wright's CV is impressive and he has already expressed an interest in the job. He also recently claimed on the BBC that his CV was "strong" and he'd welcome the opportunity to lead the Northern Ireland team. The Irish FA has plenty of time before their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign. It's important to ensure the right person for the role. Consider these candidates for the next Northern Ireland manager and be aware of any changes to the team.

Michael O'Neill's successor will have to be chosen before the end of the year. The Irish FA has a difficult task ahead of them. They must choose someone who can deliver the results Northern Ireland fans have been looking for. Among the potential candidates for the role are Michael O'Neill, Harry Smith, and Ian Baraclough.

In September, Northern Ireland won 2-1 in the Nations League against Kosovo, their first major tournament win since O'Neill's era. In their last game, they lost 3-1 to Greece in Athens. They remain in the relegation zone, needing to win Cyprus's match to get out of League D.
