Eamon Dunphy is put on the spot and asked about some of his most famous, and polemic, public pronouncements.

Do he still think Kevin Kilbane's "head is better than his feet – and if only he had three heads, one on the end of each leg"?

"No! Kevin was a great player for Ireland and I like him. Let's pretend I didn't say that!" Dunphy laughs.

Is Mick McCarthy still "a boil on the arse of humanity"?

"I never said that!" he claims.

And do you still think that Niall Quinn is "a Mother Teresa"?

"Yeah. He is all things to all people. He's a saint, isn't it? He always says what is popular.

"I think Niall might be president of Ireland one day. He might rise without trace to the presidency."
