Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill has been charged with drink-driving.

O’Neill allegedly failed a breath test after he was pulled over by police just before 1am on Sunday.

Police confirmed a 48-year-old man was charged in connection with drink driving.

He is due to appear at court on October 10th.

An Irish FA statement read: (We are) aware of an alleged drink-driving incident involving Michael O’Neill. As it is a police matter, the Association will be making no further comment.

O’Neill has guaranteed at least a play-off spot for his nation in their Russia 2018 qualifying group – just a year after leading them to the finals of Euro 2016.
