This comes in relation to an incident that saw Kenny show a three-minute motivational montage to players before a game versus England, that featured "historical material".

Speaking on Tuesday night, Sadlier first described the entire situation as a "non-story compared to how it was first reported", and said that there doesn't seem to be any senior members of the staff who have issues with what happened.

He did say that the person responsible knew that leaking this information to the press would result in Kenny being undermined.

"That would be the concern for me. That somebody clearly tried to in some way Stephen Kenny.

"A lot of effort should now be undertaken privately to determine who did it, and make sure their access to the camp is removed."

Sadlier also stressed that he believes that it has not undermined Kenny's authority, but that he does believe that was the individual's intention when it was leaked to the press.

He said that the people who matter haven't come out publicly or privately to complain about what took place.
