“I think it was the right decision I approached Barry Gleeson saying it was something we wanted to do. I think it’s a very important message. The fact it was booed was incomprehensible, really.
It must be damaging for Hungary, with the Euros in Hungary. It’s disappointing and it doesn’t reflect well on Hungary and the Hungarian support.
Our players wanted to do it, it’s an important stance and I commend them for taking that stance.”
🗣"I was quite disappointed."
