Kerry boss does not mince words

Silence may be golden among some managers these days, especially when it comes to sharing their views with RTE but, thankfully, there are still some straight-talkers around. Enter John Meyler, Kerry hurling boss.

After leading the Kingdom to their second Christy Ring Cup final in succession last Saturday, he was asked whether he'd be staying on. Conscious of what happened in his Wexford days, he wasn't going to tempt fate.

"The last contract I had I was fired! When I was in Wexford they kicked me out the door and I thought I had done reasonably well in the two years I was there."

Somehow, we don't think Kerry will make the same mistake.
