Andy Moran Urges Aidan O’Shea to ‘readdress’ his game ahead of 2022

The former Mayo star forward Andy Moran was talking to The Irish Times with the launch of his new book ‘ANDY.’ It was another disappointing year for Mayo, this time losing to Tyrone in the All-Ireland final and their best chance to lift the Sam Maguire cup for the first time in over 60 years.

The former Mayo footballer has asked Aidan O’Shea to ‘readdress’ his game ahead of the new season.

“He has a lot of Gaelic football played. He probably needs to reset and readdress his game and probably come up with a new strategy of how to play. You can’t just be the wrecking ball for sixteen or seventeen years,” Moran said.

“He probably has to reinvent himself slightly but I think he has the hunger to do it. The media attention never frightened him. It goes against him when he has a bad game. But he can shrug his shoulders and just say: let’s go.

“Like he will be training in January and he will keep showing up, I feel. I am not here to defend Aidan O Shea. But in my time I have never met a player who could go in fullback, centre back, midfield, centre forward and full forward and do a job for you.

“If he is inside with Cillian and me, then I’m marked by the third best defender, probably. He gave me that level of protection. What he did on Donaghy at fullback was amazing. Yes he had some tough days there, too. He is a different character. He thinks differently and is his own man but for our key he is absolutely key.”
