The 73-year-old Italian tactician sidestepped speculation over his future as Ireland manager and insisted that the decision would ultimately come from the FAI
After presiding over Ireland's worst ever home defeat - a 6-1 loss to Germany - reports in the media suggested that the 73-year-old's future was under serious threat.
Indeed, prior to the game against the Faroe Islands, it emerged that Trapattoni would not fly to Dublin to take part in the post-match press conference and would instead fly straight to Italy, thus fuelling speculation.
But, having guided the team to a comprehensive 4-1 victory over the Faroe Islands on Tuesday October 16, Trapattoni stressed that the decision was entirely the FAI's to make.
"I know I was at three of the most important clubs in the world and I knew the procedures there," he told reporters when asked about his future after the victory in Torshavn.
"And I know what we have done in three years here; the results, the ranking, the changes in the team. This I know. After that the FAI must make the decision," added Trapattoni.
Ireland are currently third in Group C with six points from three qualification games, leaving them behind Germany and Sweden.
