“Ray Dempsey would have been a better choice for Mayo, genuinely,”

“I found Ray Dempsey very direct, very honest, and I don’t think there’s enough of those people around any more, especially in management. He would have been a good fit for them because that’s exactly what Mayo need. But look, it’s Kevin McStay and he’s got a star-studded backroom team.

“Experienced managers that I’ve spoken to have all spoken about the importance of keeping it fairly tight. That’s not a tight backroom team that McStay has. It feels a wee bit overloaded.

“Backroom teams that are hefty in numbers, it’s so difficult to manage them. You’re trying to manage players, but also backroom teams. A lot of the egos can be in backroom teams as opposed to the players on the pitch.”
