Arie Haan's Agent Calls on Irish Football Fans for Help

Arie Haan's agent today urged Irish football fans to unite behind his candidate for the Irish manager's job.

"It's time to break with the past and move on from the age of the gaffer to the 'Haan Dynasty'," said the Hong Kong based sports agent, Mark Mullan.

Mr Mullan, who submitted the Holland legend's application to the FAI on Wednesday, is urging fans to unite behind the Dutchman in order to avoid 'another managerial fiasco:

"It's not too late if we act now. Terry Venables may be popular with some people, but there is also a lot of discontent out there. A lot of people want a clean break with the style of the past. And Arie Haan is the perfect man for the job -- a combination of experience, success and tactical mastery."

Haan, who was in Beijing Wednesday to offer advice to the Chinese Football Association, said the Irish job would be perfect for him.

"I have always admired the fighting spirit of the Irish, but the current squad also has some gifted technical players. I think I could really turn things around," said Haan in a statement issued via his media representative.

"Ireland has its own particular style. But I am from Holland, where we have different ideas on how to play. If we can match the two styles, I think it would be perfect.

"As a player, I played against Liam Brady and George Best and had the highest respect for them. I know that Best played for Northern Ireland, but the attitude was the same. Both were gentlemen. My agent and spokesperson are Irish, so I know I can definitely work with the Irish. And I love the fans."

In a number of interviews on Wednesday, Haan reiterated his interest in a new challenge, after quitting as Cameroon boss in February:

"I am itching to get involved in management again and work in Europe," said the Stuttgart-based Dutchman, who speaks fluent English.

"There are a lot of top candidates for this job. But all I can say is that I bring a lot of experience and success, and maybe it's also time for Ireland to have a continental coach.

"If you keep the same mentality not much will change. Also, to win, the players need a coach and staff around them who know what it is to win. And all my life I have won a lot more than I lost," said the five-time European Cup winner and veteran of two World Cup finals.
