邁克爾-墨菲退休。明星的退出是對多尼戈爾的巨大打擊" - Declan Bonner

前多尼戈爾老闆德克蘭-邦納說,邁克爾-墨菲的退休決定將對帕迪-卡爾的新管理團隊是一個 "巨大的打擊"。

"這是一個巨大的打擊,但時間不等人,"邦納告訴BBC Foyle電台。

"這對即將上任的管理層來說是一個巨大的打擊,但我相信他們已經和他進行了這樣的談話。"

在多尼戈爾6月的全英預選賽被阿瑪擊敗後,邦納在執教5年後卸任主教練,這是在令人非常失望的阿爾斯特決賽被德里擊敗後,墨菲的2012年全英隊友尼爾-麥基也從此退出了縣際舞台。

"邁克爾做出了他的決定。他沒有匆忙做出決定,他花了很多時間,權衡了他的選擇,他在哪裡。

"但這是一個多麼了不起的職業生涯。在過去的15-16年裡,他一直是一名出色的球員。不僅僅是場上的球員,還有場外的球員,以及他為多尼戈爾足球所做的一切貢獻。"

邦納補充說,墨菲在多尼戈爾隊中 "樹立了標準"。

"他的訓練就像他打球一樣。一般的訓練課對他來說就像一場全愛爾蘭決賽,他把一切都留在了球場上,他對球員的要求也是如此。

"對於一個一路走來受到很多打擊,並且確實受到一兩次嚴重撞擊的人來說,你可以用一隻手來計算他錯過了多少次訓練課。

"第一個上場,最後一個下場,以身作則,是多尼戈爾許多GAA球員的真正榜樣。"

邦納認為,墨菲在2012年決賽戰勝梅奧後,沒有帶領多尼戈爾隊進一步取得全英賽的勝利,他將會有一絲遺憾。

"他在2014年接近它,在過去的幾年裡,我們在2018年和2019年贏得了我們的阿爾斯特冠軍,並有機會繼續踢球,我們可能只是在那些大的比賽中失敗了,那最後兩個阿爾斯特決賽。

"但是,仍然有五個阿爾斯特冠軍,他是多尼戈爾五個阿爾斯特冠軍的隊長,他得到了全愛爾蘭獎和無數[三個]全明星獎。

"多麼好的職業生涯。15年的時間裡,他一直處於非常、非常頂尖的位置,如果說在那段最好的時間裡他不是頂尖的個人的話。"

邦納認為墨菲將來會在多尼戈爾擔任某種 "經理或主教練 "的角色。

"他可能會花一點時間,重新評估一切,但你肯定會看到他以某種形式回來,無論是在主教練還是作為球隊經理,但不是現在。"


Former Donegal boss Declan Bonner says Michael Murphy's decision to retire will be a "huge blow" for Paddy Carr's new management team.

"It's a massive blow but time waits for no one," Bonner told BBC Radio Foyle.

"It's a huge blow for the incoming management but I'm sure they've had that conversation with him."

Bonner stood down as manager after five years in charge following Donegal's All-Ireland qualifier hammering by Armagh in June, which followed a hugely disappointing Ulster Final defeat by Derry while Murphy's 2012 All-Ireland team-mate Neil McGee has also since quit the inter-county scene.

"Michael made his decision. He didn't make it hastily, he took his time about it and weighed up his options of where he was at.

"But what an amazing career. Over the last 15 16 years he has been an outstanding player. Not just a player on the field but off the field and everything he contributed to Donegal football."

Bonner added that Murphy "set the standards" in the Donegal squad.

"He trained like he played. The average training session was like an All-Ireland final for that man and he left everything on the pitch and he demanded that from the players.

"For a man who took a lot of hits along the way and did pick up one or two serious knocks, you could count on one hand how many times he has missed a training session.

"First man on and last man off and just led by example a real role model for many GAA players in Donegal."

Bonner believes Murphy will have a tinge of regret at not leading Donegal to further All-Ireland successes after their 2012 final triumph over Mayo.

"He came close to it in 2014 and over the last number of years, we won our Ulster titles in 2018, 2019 and had opportunities to kick on and we probably just came up short on those big games, those last two Ulster finals.

"But still, five Ulster titles, he captained Donegal's five Ulster titles, he's got the All-Ireland and numerous [Three] All-Star awards.

"What a career. Fifteen years at the very, very top if not the top individual for the best part of that period."

Bonner believes Murphy will take some kind of "managerial or head coach" role with Donegal in the future.

"He will probably take a bit of time out and re-evaluate everything but you will definitely see him come back in some form, whether that be in head coach or as a team manager but not right now."
