Sean Cavanagh will not be rushed into making a decision on his inter county future with Tyrone, stressing that after last Sunday’s dismissal against Mayo that he was not in the right frame of mind.
Speculation has been growing about the former footballer of the year since the game and he is set to take another few weeks at least to decide what he will do. Cavanagh told the Irish News “At this stage, there’s that many different factors that come into it, that I’m definitely not in the mind-frame to make any rash decisions at this stage. I don’t think it needs to be made right now’’
The Tyrone went on further to say ‘I am long enough about to know that you shouldn’t do that so, look, it will be a case of playing a bit of club football for the next few weeks and seeing how the body holds up, and seeing how the winter goes, to a certain extent. Cavanagh then went to say his wife suggested that this was definitely my last year and said ‘’My wife has been convinced that this was definitely my last year playing football’’
Cavanagh to date has 3 All Ireland medals, 4 Ulster medals. 2 National Football League title and an incredible 5 All-Star awards.
The people of Tyrone he will stay for the 2017 season as will manager Mickey Harte.
