Shakeel Dad’s expertise helps secure new manager for national team
Walker Morris Director Shakeel Dad has advised Mick McCarthy in respect of his appointment as Manager of the Republic of Ireland’s national football team.
McCarthy becomes the first manager to take charge of the Irish team twice having been at the helm between 1996 and 2002 when he guided the Irish team to the 2002 World Cup finals.
McCarthy has appointed Terry Connor and Ireland’s all-time leading goal scorer Robbie Keane as his assistants.
Commenting on the deal Shakeel said:
“This is a landmark appointment for Mick and the Irish national team with Mick being the first to manage the Irish team twice. The next two years will be an important period which will hopefully see Ireland qualify for the 2020 Euros.”
This latest announcement reinforces Shakeel Dad’s credentials in the football sector. He continues to advise a number of Premier League clubs, with recent work including a number of matters with Tottenham Hotspur and advising Everton in respect of the appointment of their new manager, Marco Silva.
