Firm backing: David Healy knows he is not alone as he strives to bring success to Windsor Park

David Healy has paid a warm tribute to his family and thanked them for their "unrelenting" support during his time as Linfield manager.

Having won his third league title for the Blues in the last four seasons, Healy is now turning his attention to the next campaign and, while there is no date yet for the 2020-21 Irish Premiership kick-off, Linfield know they will play in the preliminary round of the Champions League on August 8.

How Healy would love his team to match the performances in Europe last year when they brought over £1m into the club in Uefa prize money and were close to qualifying for the group stages of the Europa League.
