McEnaney's future uncertain

Monaghan football manager Seamus McEnaney has admitted his future is in doubt after being told he would have to reapply for his job.

McEnaney had committed himself to another three years in the post, but the county board voted in favour of seeking other nominees.

"I thought long and hard about my own future as Monaghan team manager after our exit from the 2010 championship," McEnaney said in a statement.

"I listened to people whose views matter to me. I listened in particular to the experienced players. For me the most important people in any football environment are the players.

"I came to the conclusion that with a further three years we had every prospect of making further progress on the strides we had made over the last six years, considering where this team came from to now being one of the top teams in the country.

"One perspective is that there are some who feel that I may not be the man to continue to lead this team.

"Do I wish my name to go forward and perhaps be part of a 'competition' for the post I have held for the last six years? Well, that's a prospect I will now have to think very carefully about."
