Dirty old job for kitman

The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is looking for a kit room assistant and is only willing to pay €50-a-week to the person who gets the job.

The organisation, which oversees the administration of soccer in this country and recently admitted to receiving €5m from FIFA following Thierry Henry's infamous handball incident, is using the JobBridge scheme to hire the kitman.

Legendary kitman Charlie O'Leary who was a familiar face to all throughout Ireland's successful period of the late 1980s and 1990s has a warning for anyone applyng for the job.

From his experience, and no doubt the role has expanded since, hard graft is required as it is not an easy position.

But to be paid €50 a week on top of social welfare? Surely the FAI are well offside on that score.
