Television pundit Eamon Dunphy has been defending his comments he made about Seamus Coleman’s captaincy after Monday’s 2-2 draw with Serbia in the World Cup qualifier.
He said the Killybeg’s man should not be given the burnden of the role and that he didn’t have a good Euro competition in France while also questioning if he was a natural leader.
Speaking with Diarmaid Doherty in today’s Donegal Democrat, Dunphy backed up his comments by saying “Coleman hasn’t been in good form for club or country because of injury and giving him the captains role at this time might not necessarily be the right thing”.
He also said “Coleman is a terrific player and I am a huge fan but sometimes being a captain doesn’t suit every player”.
