Counihan will take his time

Conor Counihan will not rush into a decision on his future as Cork football manager.

Counihan's three-year term officially ended with Sunday's All-Ireland SFC triumph at Croke Park, but officials are keen to extend his tenure.

He has urged the more senior members of the Cork team, including Alan Quirke, John Miskella, Nicholas Murphy, Anthony Lynch and Derek Kavanagh, not to rush into any decisions on retirement.

"I don't know what guys are thinking. I'd be saying 'take stock for the next four weeks, leave the emotions settle and make a cool, calm decision at that stage'. I'm top of that list. I'm not thinking beyond tomorrow. We'll enjoy the week, the next few weeks and people will sit back and see what the situation is," he said.

The management issue is expected to come up for discussion at the next county board meeting on October 5 after Wednesday's scheduled meeting was postponed due to the ongoing celebrations.
