‘It’s not going to help’: Mick McCarthy urges fans not to go ahead with planned protest against John Delaney

  • Republic of Ireland came out with a narrow 1-0 win over Gibraltar last week 
  • Mick McCarthy has suggested he’ll need a tennis racket for their next match 
  • Ireland supporters are planning to throw tennis balls on to the Aviva Stadium pitch in protest against controversial outgoing FAI chief executive John Delaney 

Mick McCarthy has suggested he will need a tennis racket for the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Georgia on Tuesday night if protesting fans don’t heed his words.

Ireland supporters are planning to throw tennis balls on to the Aviva Stadium pitch in protest against controversial outgoing FAI chief executive John Delaney.

It was announced on Saturday that Delaney would be sticking around at Irish football’s governing body in a newly-created role of executive vice-president.

But McCarthy wants protests kept away from the pitch and only backing for the team raining down from the stands on Tuesday night.

‘It’s not going to help us play any better, so I hope that’s not the case,’ McCarthy said of the protest plans. 

‘They want us to win and give us the best chance, and that’s getting behind us and not having any outside influences affecting that.

‘But I can’t do anything about it if they do. Maybe I’ll take a tennis racket with me.’
