Quinn praises UEFA for postponing Euro 2020
Republic of Ireland interim deputy CEO Niall Quinn has praised UEFA for postponing Euro 2020 until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It's intended that the national team's play off against Slovakia will be held in early June, circumstances permitting.
Quinn has said that the timing of the handover from current manager Mick McCarthy to Stephen Kenny will be decided at a later date.
UEFA are hoping that the Champions League and Europa League Finals can be staged by the end of June, with the intention that the Premier League season be completed once football resumes.
Quinn told FAI TV that there's a time and a place to decide who will lead the Republic of Ireland into Euro 2021 should we qualify, and now is not that time.
