Interesting from the Independent here:

Indeed, there were even suggestions that some FAI officials had expressed concerns about Kenny's communication skills. Those words didn't go unnoticed by those close to Kenny. Nor have the extra pairs of eyes that have turned up to watch some of his press conferences.


If that’s true, it’s totally laughable. Kenny is one of the clearest communicators I can think of in football. He actually speaks with vision.

I think there's a bit of a scramble to find some angle of attack against Kenny from certain quarters. I wouldn't call him charismatic or witty in the way that McCarthy is, but I'd agree with you that he's a pretty reasonable communicator.
We're decent enough..

If you say so, the general consensus in the football world would be that he's a very likeable guy though. That's not saying anything about his managerial ability, just the man himself.

It is all subjective. For example, I would say the term  'beyond cringe' is, well, exactly that!
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Well I am sure the Swedish healthcare system is much better than the HSE so he is in good hands as such LOL. From what I am reading it doesn't sound too serious thankfully

Kenny might not seem like the best communicator with the media, but from his team's performances, it's clear that his communication skills within the dressing room are far superior to previous managers.

Hopefully the illness is nothing too serious.

He's just not a natural on camera. Big deal. Listen to how his players and former players speak of him. He's clearly excellent at communicating to his players how he wants them to play football

think he repeats himself constantly on camera and picks a word he's going to say 20 times through the interview, but he clearly knows how to communicate to the players and thats the main thing

Surely there's some type of media course professional sports people go on so they can address the media in a professional manner.

Why? So he can give the same platitudes and cliches as everyone else?
