Anthony Cunningham will battle on as Galway manager despite player unrest after talks with county board officials last night, according to reports.

Cunningham was ratified by the county board to continue in his role for the 2016 season last week, but, after the squad then unanimously passed a motion of no confidence in his stewardship, his future looked in serious doubt.

However, he met with county officials to discuss the issue late Sunday night and indicated that he is keen to remain at the helm despite the in-house turmoil.

Cunningham won two All-Irelands as a player but Galway have not lifted Liam MacCarthy since the team he played on back in 1988.

The St Thomas' man took over the Tribesemen in 2012 and guided them to a first Leinster title that year with a stunning victory over Kilkenny on their way to the All-Ireland final.

The Cats gained revenge with victory after a replay and Cunningham although led Galway back to the decider this year, the Tribesmen came up short against Brian Cody’s men once again.
