‘Aggressive and personal’: Bulldogs boss baffled by attacks on Beveridge

The Western Bulldogs’ football chief says he has been “blown away” at aggressive and personal attacks on under-fire coach Luke Beveridge.

The Dogs’ general manager of football, Matthew Egan, is staunchly defending Beveridge as “an incredible coach”, amid mounting scrutiny.

“I have been blown away with how aggressive some of the comments have been in the media about a guy who has been coaching 10 years at the footy club, with a grand final win and obviously being in the grand final only three years ago,” Egan told SEN radio on Wednesday.

“It feels like it has been a little bit aggressive and personal against Bevo.”

The Bulldogs have lost four of their past five matches to slip to 11th spot ahead of Saturday night’s MCG match against struggling Richmond.

“I go to my experience of working in footy, in the coaching industry, for 16 years,” Egan said.

“And I have never seen a coach connect as well as I have with Bevo and his players.

“His ability to story-tell and create a narrative week-to-week for the players is amazing.”
