McHugh admits Gooch comment was “clumsy phrase”

Colm Gooch CooperMartin McHugh has admitted that he was wrong to describe Colm Cooper as a "two trick pony"

The former Donegal All Ireland winner stirred-up huge out-rage over the weekend when he sought to praise the performance of James O'Donoghue by disparaging the man that he has replaced in the Kingdom full-forward line.

However, McHugh has admitted in his column in The Star this morning that he used a "clumsy phrase" and that doesn't stand up - but stands by his assertion that O'Donoghue has the potential to overtake the Gooch to be considered one of the best players of all time.
