Star hooker also says he will not walk away from the NRL club in its time of need.
Wests Tigers captain Robbie Farah has attempted to clear the air surrounding the massive off-field troubles that are currently enveloping the NRL club.
In a wide-ranging interview on Channel Nine’s The Footy Show, Farah was grilled about the coaching saga and what his future was at the joint-venture.
Asked by Nine’s Phil Gould whether he got rid of Sheens, Farah deadpanned: “No.”
Did he get rid of Marshall?
“No, not at all.”
Was he agitating for the removal of Potter?
“No. God no.”
Farah was asked if he will have any say in who will coach the Tigers from 2015 onwards, with Potter’s tenure at the club still under a cloud despite them winning games in 2014 in the face of a huge injury toll.
“That’s the way it works. Players aren’t there to pick the coach. That is what management gets paid for,” Farah said.
“We are there to play football. At the end of the day, that is a decision they have to make. The players, we support the coach no matter who it is.
“If Mick gets the job again for next year, he will have our full support. If it’s another coach, we have to get on with the job and continue to do what’s best for this footy club and that’s win games.
“There is no problem between myself and Mick. We have a really good working relationship, we are very honest and upfront with each other, we know we have to be to try and improve this club.”
Farah added the media’s continued questions aimed at him about the board and its direction were misguided.
“That’s the thing, people always come to me for answers. I just want to worry about football. They are asking me questions on management and decisions to be made, that’s not my job. My job is to try and captain a footy side to the best of my ability,” he said.
“They are looking for the wrong place and answers . . . I’m not there making these decisions. They need to go to the decision-makers for these answers. At the moment I just feel all that pressure is being heaped on me.”
