Unlike what seems to be the obligatory 'we'll take time out to consider our future', Tipperary manager Liam Kearns has stated that he wants to remain in the role.

It is customary for every county manager to be asked 'what the future holds' following the end of their respective campaigns and more often than not, the reply is 'we'll take time …….'.

Kearns knows what he wants after Tipperary's year came to an end when Mayo defeated them in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers last Saturday.

"Our progress at championship level is stagnant now, notwithstanding that we met two traditional teams in Cork and Mayo. But for us, we stagnated as regards championship and didn't make it as far as last year - the last sixteen," Kearns pointed out to the Tipperary Star.

"That's the first time in three years that we have not progressed and that's the reality for me right now. I know Mayo are the second best team in the country and have been for the last few years.

"But, look, there is an awful lot to build on and we have proved that we are good footballers and can live with the best."
