New Ireland boss Mick McCarthy has given a no nonsense glimpse into what Irish fans have in store in the next couple of years.
In an honest and in-depth interview with veteran broadcaster Eamon Dunphy, as part of a new ‘Paddy Power’s Head2 Head’ series, the Ireland manager gave an honest insight into his footballing philosophy.
"I like my teams to play football but I'm also pragmatic," he told Dunphy.
"But if I'm playing against Manchester City I'm not going to take them on playing football
"If I have to put it behind and put balls in the box so be it ... because if you win like that no one's bothered."
The new ‘Paddy Power’s Head2 Head’ series will see Dunphy sit down with McCarthy, Robbie Keane, Ruby Walsh, Graeme Souness and Tomas O’ Sé.
