'I'll never forget the support I got' - Coleman

Seamus Coleman is "delighted" that Martin O'Neill is staying on as Irish boss, with the returning Everton star grateful to the Derry man and his management team for the role they played in his recovery from a broken leg.

Coleman shone on his first-team comeback on Wednesday night, with the 29-year-old excelling in the Premier League win over Leicester City that marked his return after more than 10 months on the sidelines.

He missed the business end of Ireland's World Cup campaign, although the captain was invited to come in and be around the dressing room by O'Neill and Roy Keane.

The Donegal man admitted that it was a "killer" to be powerless to prevent the exit from the competition at the hands of Denmark, but he appreciates the support that was offered by the Irish staff in the aftermath of the horror injury he suffered against Wales.

And he is looking forward to getting back into Irish action and targeting Euro 2020, buoyed by the news that O'Neill is sticking around.

"I'm delighted they are staying," Coleman told the Irish Independent. "The Denmark game was disappointing for everyone, but I have to say that we're competitive now.

"The Euros were great. We had a great night in Wales, albeit I know it turned out to be nothing. The Denmark game, we just weren't at it.

"We had a few injuries, but I'm happy they are staying and I'm just looking forward to the next campaign. I'm really looking forward to putting on that green shirt.

"The manager, the coaching staff and Roy have been a great comfort to me from day one and it's something I will never forget.

"Obviously I'm looking forward to getting back and getting a few bollockings from them now and then when I'm not performing. But the relationship I've had with them over the past 10 months is something I'll always remember."
