Dan Shanahan says the chances of the current Waterford hurling management staying on are only '50-50'.

The former Hurler of the Year, who has been Derek McGrath's right-hand man for the last four seasons, has suggested that the county board needs to be more supportive if they're to build on this year's run to the All-Ireland final.

"A lot of that will have to do with different things with the county board," Shanahan told Newstalk's Off The Ball.

"The backing - the 120 per cent backing that we hope to have from them. There's no point going forward if we're not all together.

"There's more in all of us to push on to where we want to go and win the All-Ireland. It's important for us that if we go back that we get a trophy next year whether it's a League, a Munster title or an All-Ireland title.

"It's 50-50. We've sat down and gone to every club game in Waterford this year to see can we pick up another hurler or two for the future."
