The pressure has ratcheted up a few levels since Munster's abysmal loss in Paris confirmed their already inevitable exit from the Champions Cup. It is the second year in succession and only the third time this century that Munster have been eliminated from the European Cup in the pool stage.
Alan Quinlan's angry post-match verdict will have heaped further pressure on the current regime. Quinlan, who played alongside Foley not only at Munster but also at Shannon back in the late-1990s, said that everyone in the organisation needs to come under scrutiny.
Anthony Foley admits he is considering his position following the latest defeat. He was recently offered a one year extension to his contract. He has yet to sign it. He acknowledges that his team need to start winning soon.
It's about results. I have said it before and I am clear on it, if I don't feel I can get results there is no point in being here. I have been brought up through here. I have been here a long time, come through schools and everything. It's about winning. It's not about people. It's about getting results.
It doesn't matter. Sport has no memory, no conscience. It doesn't care. You have got to be able to do a job and make sure you get results.
When asked if he was considering his position, Foley confirmed that he was.
Oh yeah. I’ve just answered the question. Its about looking at everything, I do it on a weekly basis and nearly do it on a daily basis now at this stage
He reiterated calls that the Munster fans come out and support the team, having previously critiqued the low attendances in Thomond Park at the start of the season.
