Dermots Mulrany will end his playing career at the end of this year, according to former Irish internationals coach John Herdman.
“I don’t know, but I think Dermotte will,” Herdmen told the Irish Independent.
“He’s a fantastic player and a fantastic person and I think he’ll retire at the last minute.”
The Derry man is known as a player with an unbelievable competitive streak.
“It’s not easy to come back from the footy bug,” Herrman added.
“The only thing you can say about Dermott is he’s a great person, great leader and great leader on and off the field.”
There’s no doubt he has been a huge influence on the way he’s played for the past five years.
“That’s what I think will happen.”
His personality, his intensity and his desire to win at all costs.
“It is a sentiment echoed by his former team-mate, who is confident that Dermota will “play for a while” after a “long and successful” career.”
Dermot is a really great person.
He’s a really special person and he’ll have a long career,” said Ireland internationals captain Jamie Heaslip.”
You can’t say he hasn’t been in the right place at the right time.
I know he’s been in a lot of good places.
“In his 11 seasons at the Stade de France, the 34-year-old has won four successive LaLiga titles and won four major honours, including three consecutive major crowns.
He has also made a further three appearances for Ireland’s senior internationals side, winning four caps in 2014, 2015 and 2016.”
We are all extremely happy with the way we’ve played in the last couple of years,” said Herdmann.”
As a team we have played really well in the games and in the qualifiers.
So I think it’s something he’s very happy with.”””
It’s something that he has always been able to achieve and that has always brought him the greatest satisfaction and pride.”
So I think it’s something he’s very happy with.””
He has been fantastic.
He has a great personality, he is passionate about his club and about his team and his players.
“When you get a player of his calibre it’s going to be tough to play against him.”
Obviously it’s not an easy thing to do, but it’s one of those things where he will just play the way that he wants to play and hopefully we’ll get through the tournament.
“Dermots goalkeeping legend Dermode Tuilagi was also on hand to chat about the season.”
All his career he has worked really hard and I’ve always said that he’s got the potential to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world.””
He scored the goal against Ireland in the final and that was just a fantastic game.”
