Tyrone attacker Cathal McShane say he’s looking forward to getting back fully fit and working under the county’s new senior football management team.
Fergal Logan and Brian Dooher will lead a new era for the Red Hands in 2021, having taken over from three-time All-Ireland winning boss Mickey Harte as the latter stepped down back in November after 18 years in charge of the team.
Like a number of current panel members, McShane played under Logan and Dooher as the pair went on to guide Tyrone to All-Ireland U21 glory in 2015.
Speaking to BBC Sport NI, McShane even pointed out that he’s had a few battles on the pitch with Dooher in club matches down through the years.
"It was always good to play against Brian. I didn't know after the game whether we would be still speaking or not. We had a few coming togethers," he joked.
"He's very passionate when he's playing and he's no different now when he's on the sideline.
"I saw that first hand with the under-21s. He's a man that you can speak to in terms of his experience - if it's a few words before a game or maybe it's on the training field.
"I've had a great relationship with both of them and I can't wait to just get back fully fit and resume playing under both of them hopefully."Tweet
