Canavan hits out at Harte decision

Manager refused one-year extension

Tyrone legend Peter Canavan has criticised the decision not to grant Mickey Harte a one-year extension to his tenure as manager of the senior football panel.

Canavan believes that there are internal politics at play in the decision not to extend the three-time All-Ireland-winning manager’s tenure beyond the next season.

"I don't know if Mickey Harte feels unwanted, but the way he has been treated is totally unwarranted," he said of Tuesday night’s shock decision by the Tyrone County Board.

"To turn down a request for an extension of just one year to Mickey's term smacks of a decision in which internal politics are very much at play.

"If the team were in decline, you could say something, but all the signs this year were extremely encouraging and it's clear that Tyrone are going in one direction and that's upward. Most people outside the county are completely baffled and so they should be."

Meanwhile, Brian McGuigan, another former Tyrone star, has suggested that Harte's long-running dispute with RTE and refusal to grant interviews may have been behind the county board's actions.
