Morrison succeeds Greg McGonigle in the post and admits that the expectation from his new employers is that the Farney County will finally capture an All-Ireland title after a 16-year wait.

Monaghan last lifted the Brendan Martin Cup in 1997, but have since suffered defeat in five finals.

"I have a directive from Monaghan and everybody involved with Monaghan: 'You'd better win the All-Ireland'," he said. "It's about getting the mindset changed. If you think you can, you will."
