Horan rubbishes rift rumours following Mayo All-Ireland final defeat

Mayo football manager James Horan has dismissed rumours of a disagreement in the Mayo management team and says planning for 2022 is already underway.

The fallout from the county's All-Ireland final disappointment - a five-point loss to Tyrone last month - included reports of discontent within the set-up.

However, in a wide-ranging interview with Mid West Radio this morning, Horan refuted rumours of trouble in the camp.

"No is the answer and I didn't realise this was happening but a couple of my mates highlighted it to me," Horan told host Tommy Marren, when asked about a fall-out amongst the management team.

"I find it incredible, the amount of untruths that were published on this is just phenomenal.

"Ciaran Mc [Donald], James Burke and myself have been working over the last number of weeks to plot and plan for the new season and that's really where we need to be so stories generated or whatever...it's actually incredible and maybe when some people take a breath and reflect on some of the stuff that's been written, they might wonder themselves.

"Ciaran Mc has been in my house I don't know how many times and we talk four or five times a day plotting and planning what we're going to do.

"Working with James... I know there was a clip that was sent around of James Burke saying something to me, there was a couple of hundred people behind us, it was a little bit noisy so I asked James to repeat what he said and that was taken out of context then.

"To me it's bonkers, it's bonkers. That was published and then people ran with it, based on absolutely nothing. It's a complete untruth."

Reflecting on the match itself, the Ballintubber club man said everyone was keen to bounce back next year.

"It was disappointing for us, obviously very disappointing for us as a team and as a group, we'd big plans and on the day and in the game it didn't work for us.

"There's no one more disappointed, trust me on this, than the team, players and their families and the people associated with it, the support team and the amount of time and effort we put in.

"It's very disappointing when you don't play like you can, that's the key thing for us.

"We're absolutely determined to figure it out, take ownership of what worked and what didn't and really get to work on them and come out in 2022 a better and stronger team."
