In the end it was Goodnight Vienna.

Giovanni Trapattoni was sacked the morning after the Boys in Green fluffed their moves during the Viennese waltz.

The Republic of Ireland boss paid the price for a build up of dissatisfaction springing up from the disappointing showing at Euro 2012.

And as itÂ’s a results business the two defeats in a row against Sweden and Austria cost him his job.

Former keeper Shay Given revealed recently that his lack of decent English was an issue in the dressing room.

FAI CEO Delaney confirmed that the FAI Board of Management will meet “within the next week” where they’ll “discuss the process of the appointment” of the new man.

Delaney revealed the decision to part ways with Trap and his backroom team was made at 9.30 this morning “and there was a lot of emotion in the room”.

Emotion also played a part in Trapattoni’s statement ” we leave with emotion because we understand the Irish supporters who have out utmost respect”.

Martin OÂ’Neill is the bookiesÂ’ favourite to become the next manager of Ireland.
