Foley coy on O'Connell links

Anthony Foley is refusing to comment on speculation linking Paul O'Connell with Munster's new director of rugby role.

Munster have outlined plans to appoint a director of rugby ahead of the 2016-17 season, with former Ireland captain O'Connell among the names linked with the position.

Foley, who signed a new one-year extension last week, will have to work under the new director of rugby but for the moment his sole concern is ensuring Munster finish the season strongly rather than on the speculation surrounding the role.

"You are always answerable to somebody. Everybody is answerable to somebody so that's no change. That's there at the present. It just might be a different person," Foley said of the new position.

Foley does not know if he will be involved in the recruitment process, preferring to concentrate on getting the right result against Zebre.

"I don't know to be honest. I haven't asked to have an input, I am more concentrating on the here and now, and making sure that we get results on the weekend. It's something that I talk to the CEO about every now and then but it's not a regular occurrence," Foley is quoted as saying in the Irish Daily Mirror.

When asked about the possibility of O'Connell returning to Munster, Foley added: "That is something you would need to talk to Paul about. It is not something I would talk about."
