O'Driscoll hits out at Cork critics
29 Jul 2015 23:11
Cork footballer Colm O’Driscoll has blasted critics of departing manager Brian Cuthbert, who vacated his position from the county side following the Rebels’ Championship exit.
-
Cuthbert’s side were dumped out of this year’s competition on Saturday as they were well beaten by Kildare by eight points at Semple Stadium.
-
And as a result the Cork manager has decided not to put his name forward for reappointment to the position.
-
O’Driscoll expressed his support for the departing Cuthbert and lashed out at critics in a string of tweets this afternoon published on his Twitter account.
-
O’Driscoll said: “As a part of the Cork senior football squad I would like to take this chance to thank Brian Cuthbert, his management team and backroom staff for the excellent work that has been done over the last two years.
-
“I fully believe that they have gathered a good group of players and have done outstanding work with them.
-
The Cork forward also took aim at some of Cuthbert and Cork’s detractors, in relation to criticism which he believed was totally unfounded and delivered by people ‘hiding behind technology’.
-
“I also think the criticism the management received in this period is bullshit and cowardly from some people hiding behind technology. There was no stone left unturned when it came to preparing for game from the sideline.
-
“As a player I can say that anything I ever asked for, as regards help and advice, was granted without a problem.
-
“I'd like to thank Brian and his staff for two enjoyable years and wish him luck with his future endeavours. A top class manager who missed out on a Munster title because of a poor refereeing decision.”

-
Other players have also come out in support of Cuthbert, including goalkeeper Paddy O’Shea, Colm O’Neill and O’Driscoll’s brother Brian.
