Offaly football manager Stephen Wallace intends to stick with what he knows best in his new role and 'that's the Kerry way'.

The Kingdom native - who will bring his charges to Parnell Park to take on Dublin in the O'Byrne Cup tonight (8pm) - is a traditionalist when it comes to how gaelic football should be played.

"Look, there's only one way to play football and that's the Kerry way," he said in an interview with RTÉ Sport.

"The teams that play football the right way win more. There'll be fads that come and go, defensive systems and all this sort of stuff.

"They'll win one or they'll win two but it's the Kerrys, the Dublins, the traditional counties that invariably come out at the top, playing football the right way."
