Shayne Lavery believes Ian Baraclough's man management style and methods will prove a hit with the Northern Ireland senior team.

The Linfield striker excelled under Baraclough at Under-21 level and offers a fascinating insight into what the Leicester native will bring to the party as Michael O'Neill's successor.

Lavery also reveals how a dressing room Bara blast spurred the Northern Ireland youngsters on to the famous 2-1 victory in Spain in the 2019 Under-21 European Championship qualifying campaign when they went close to making the Finals.
