Monaghan defender Damien Freeman has pleaded with the county board to do everything in their power to reinstate Seamus McEnaney as manager.
McEnaney has decided not to reapply for the post he had held for the last six years after clubs voted to see nominations for the position. But former captain Freeman has urged officials to abandon their search for a new manager and make an unconditional offer to McEnaney.
"If the county board wants Seamus as manager of Monaghan then they should go after him and give the job," said Freeman.
"I can't see why that can't be done. If they are supposed to be supporting the man, that is what they should do. As players, we are very unhappy with the way our manager has been treated."
