Waterford manager Paraic Fanning believes he is the man to take the county forward following a disastrous 2019 Munster SHC campaign.

Fanning looked a dejected figure as he walked off Pairc Ui Chaoimh last weekend in the aftermath of a 13-point defeat to the Rebels, which brought an end to their campaign as they finished with four defeats from four games.

This means that the Déise make an early exit from the championship, but Fanning is convinced that he can turn things around.

“We need to reflect and review and make informed decisions ourselves then because the championship goes so quickly and you go from game to game,” said Fanning.

“Now there is a little bit of headspace for people. You’re coming from a match on a Sunday and then there’s another match on a Saturday. There’s not much time when you’re getting the team ready for the following week.

“Our championship is over now for this year. We’ve got to have a good look at things then and that’s what we’ll do. I have a fair idea of what we need to do.”
