Limerick FC General Manager leaves role, days after starting

Just four days after being confirmed as Limerick FC's new General Manager, Breifne Earley has stepped down from his role, stating that the "discussions have broken down irretrievably" and that he will "no longer be continuing with the role".

Former Sligo Rovers employee Breifne Earley took to twitter this Monday evening to confirm that he would no longer be taking up the role with the newly relegated first division side. 

In a series of tweets, the GM confirmed that the rumoured takeover of the club was from a US based company and that the move would have seen the club's debts cleared. 

In a second tweet, Breifne confirmed his decision to step down, however he did not confirm if the proposed takeover of the club would still go ahead.

Just four days ago, owner and Chairman Pat O'Sullivan told this newspaper that a potential sale of the club was "total rubbish" while confirming Earley's appointment. (Read Pat O'Sullivan's quotes here
