Billionaire Opens Wallet for Trapattoni

OK, so we’ve have fans pool their resources to buy a club, now Irish billionaire Denis O’Brien is poneying up some dough to bring Giovanni Trapattoni run the national team. O’Brien is a cellphone entrepreneur (he founded ESAT Telecom) and says he’ll pay for half of the costs of the new Irish managerial staff. Trapattoni is looking for 1.4 million pounds a year for four years; something tells me O’Brien can swing it.

Trapattoni, reportedly, will accept the job tomorrow.
