MCGEE – ‘IN ORDER TO BE A TOP CLASS DEFENDER YOU NEED TO BE A BIT OF A BOLLOCKS’

first_imgGAA: Donegal defender Eamon McGee has admitted that in order to be a top inter-county defender you need to be a bit of a bollocks. McGee is one of best defenders in the game and has been a mainstay of the Donegal defence for the best part of a decade.How he has never won an All-Star is a mystery – but that hasn’t diminished his status has one of the game’s best defenders.McGee wrote an excellent column in The Irish Daily Star on Saturday in which he analysed the first instalment of the Mayo and Dublin All-Ireland semi-final. It was a controversial game with many of the games main talking points surrounding incidents that occurred off the ball.However, McGee said that while the game boiled over and there were some unsavoury incidents  – most of the players will meet up and have a few pints over the winter.McGee says such flashpoints are to be expected because it’s tribal warfare between two sides desperate for victory.McGee said, “It was a physical encounter and there was a lot of needle in it, but they’ll be no ill-feeling between the players and they’ll met up for beers during the winter. “Sunday was two tribes going to war and there’s always going to be physicality when the stakes are so high.McGee admitted that every player especially at the top-level will do whatever it takes to win and sometimes that means being as he put it as a bit of a bollox.McGee said, “It’s impossible to be a gentlemen on the pitch and do the job especially if you’re a defender.“If you want to be a top-class inter-county defender then you have to be a bit of a bollox.”MCGEE – ‘IN ORDER TO BE A TOP CLASS DEFENDER YOU NEED TO BE A BIT OF A BOLLOCKS’ was last modified: September 6th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAAnewsSportlast_img
