“I don’t think Coleman should be captain, he’s not a natural leader” – Eamon Dunphy

first_imgEamon Dunphy has been critical of Martin O’Neill’s selection of Seamus Coleman as Ireland captain, saying he doesn’t look comfortable with it, and isn’t a natural leader. The controversial RTE pundit has suggested that Robbie Brady would’ve been a better choice, as he’s similar to Robbie Keane.Dunphy was speaking ahead of Ireland’s World Cup qualification opener in Serbia on RTE this evening, and was asked by anchor Darragh Maloney what he felt about Coleman being appointed skipper. Dunphy said, “I’m not sure about it, he had a very poor European Championships, and he had a bad season with Everton last year.“He hasn’t looked comfortable with the responsibility of it, some guys don’t feel it, they’re natural leaders, but I don’t think he’s a natural leader.“He’s a terrific person, everybody admires his attitude to the game, but I’m not sure on the evidence of the EURO’s he’s comfortable with it, and if that’s the case it’s a problem.When quizzed on who he thinks should be captain, Dunphy suggested John O’Shea to be the natural leader, but also said he’d like to see Robbie Brady get it, as he’s similar to Robbie Keane. Liam Brady also said Coleman was poor at the European Championships, but said he didn’t feel the captaincy is as important as it once was.His comments have already sparked anger on social media with many criticizing Dunphy for his remarks.“I don’t think Coleman should be captain, he’s not a natural leader” – Eamon Dunphy was last modified: September 5th, 2016 by Chris McNultyShare 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)last_img read more
