Following Clare’s loss to Galway this year, there has been much speculation surrounding the future of Davy Fitzgerald at the helm of the Banner.

The Sixmilebridge man took charge in his native county after a stint with Waterford, and steered the Banner to All-Ireland success in 2013. However, two barren years followed, and large amounts of public opinion has turned against him.

Speaking on ‘Documentary at One’ on RTÉ, Fitzgerald has today cast doubt on his future with Clare.

“I don’t know what I want to do. Last year I knew 100% what I want(ed) to do.

“I could see myself managing someone else, do something different. Because I love hurling so much.”

There are managerial vacancies in the country at present which could be tempting. Limerick are still on the search for a managerial team, while Ger Cunningham’s future in Dublin is still up in the air.

Davy will not be tuning into next Sunday’s clash between Kilkenny and Tipperary.

“I’ll not be watching the All-Ireland. I’ll be golfing or doing something, I don’t want to see it. I’d rather it was over and then I’d go over it again and start analysing it.

“It’s very hard when you’ve a team that could be in the All-Ireland that aren’t there.”

With so much doubt surrounding the managerial role, and high profile suitors such as Brian Lohan and Anthony Daly waiting in the wings, there are certainly interesting times ahead for Clare and Davy Fitzgerald.
