Dundalk manager Stephen Kenny collected the RTE Sport Manager of the year for 2016 in Dublin last night.
Kenny gave the credit for the award to his players saying, “I accept it on behalf of the Dundalk players,” he said. “The players have been magnificent over the last two-and-a-half years, particularly this year when we’ve had unprecedented success.”
Kenny also mentioned that the clubs next step is to qualify for the champions league and that mediocracy is not an option at Dundalk, “Obviously we qualified for the Europa League and had a great run this year and the next step is the Champions League. We have to think like that.
“We are asking a lot to compete with the level of resources the clubs have at thatlevel but we must certainly strive to have that”
“We mustn’t accept mediocrity, we must have a desire to get better all the time and constantly improve,” he insisted.
