Kerry Minor Manager Answers Question All Kerry Fans Wanted To Hear About David Clifford
By PJ Browne

Peter Keane won his second consecutive All-Ireland minor title as manager as his Kerry side annihilated Derry in the Croke Park curtain raiser.

David Clifford was the star player for Kerry, scoring 4-4, as the Kingdom won their fourth All-Ireland minor title in a row.

Post-match, speaking to TG4, Keane was asked about rumours that Clifford could be off to Australia to play Aussie rules. Losing Clifford would not be a loss just for Kerry but also GAA.

Yerra, I think there's a lot of talk about that, sure it's only idle speculation. There's people talking about that all year. David Clifford will be here and I don't worry about that at all.

TG4's Mícheál Ó Domhnaill asked Keane if he'd ever seen a minor performance like Clifford's at Croke Park. Unprompted he went on to compare the Fossa forward to Kerry great Maurice Fitzgerald.

A lot of people would compare him to Maurice Fitzgerald. I have a lot of experience of Maurice, we grew up together in Cahirciveen. I would say he's actually ahead of Maurice at this stage in his development for two reasons. One: I suppose there's more strength and conditioning going on today than there was then. Two: He's played in a school team that's gone on and won Hogan Cups and played at a much higher standard.
