Waterford manager Kevin Sheedy has denied claims that he has resigned his position at the club amidst speculation in the media over the former Ireland international's status at the club.

Media reports suggested that both Sheedy and his assistant Mike Newell did not take Thursday's team training and had departed the club, however, the former Everton midfielder has denied that he has departed the SSE Airtricity League club.

"Kevin Sheedy Manager of Waterford FC would like to refute the baseless rumour that he and Mike Newell have resigned from their positions with the Club," the club stated on social media.

"They are both committed to the club and look forward to the visit of Longford Town FC on Saturday next."

Waterford have only managed to accumulate three points from their opening six games in this year's league campaign, with five losses and just the one win.
