COUNTY BOARD BACK McGUINNESS OVER CASSIDY SACKING

first_imgGAA bosses have backed Jim McGuinness in his sacking of defender Kevin Cassidy, donegaldaily.com can reveal.We understand that the Board were informed of the decision and took the view that the Donegal manager was right to remove the Gaoth Dobhair man from the county panel.A source said: “Jim’s in charge of team affairs. Simple as that. The Board would never interfere and have given Jim their full support.” The reason for the decision was because Cassidy had given a journalist details of the pre-match tactics of Donegal. And not because of the verbal attack on his predecessor.Cassidy has released a statement today to the Gaelic Life newspaper.On the issue of John Joe Doherty’s management, he said: “I’m not trying to get at anybody. I spoke to John Joe and Tony (Boyle). When we discussed it I assured them I did not set out to hurt anyone or be negative.“What was in the book was how I felt at the time and that was it. I decided (the participation in the book) was going to be honest and how I saw things and felt there was no point leaving things out to be nice to this person and that.” COUNTY BOARD BACK McGUINNESS OVER CASSIDY SACKING was last modified: November 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Jim McGuinnessKevin Cassidylast_img
