FOOTBALL: UEFA CUP CHAOS AS MANAGER DEPARTS.

CORK City's UEFA Cup preparations have been thrown into chaos following the sudden departure of new manager Colin Murphy to Leicester City.

But assistant manager Liam Murphy, who served for four years under Dave Barry before agreeing to stay on under Colin Murphy's new regime, has stepped into the breach.

Following a board meeting last night, Murphy agreed to become caretaker-manager for the UEFA Cup clash with Lausanne Sports of Switzerland next month - but he insists that he dosn't want the job on a full-time basis.

He is likely to be helped in a coaching capacity by veteran players John Caulfield and Declan Daly until a new manager is found.

Candidates at this early stage include Dennis Mortimer, Alun Evans and Neil Thompson, all of whom were interviewed for the position before, while others such as Kerry Dixon and Gerry McCabe will again be linked with the Leesiders.

City were rocked by Murphy's decision to join his old friend Peter Taylor, who was recently named as Leicester's new manager.

Chairman Terry Dunne and the Cork board had spent much of the summer interviewing prospective candidates for the position, having placed ads in Britain and Ireland.

However Murphy was always was the hot favourite for the position - and the Irish Mirror revealed first that he had been chosen to follow in Barry's footsteps.
