Kerry boss Peter Keane doesn’t subscribe to the theory that Cork pose little threat to their chances of picking up an 81st Munster SFC crown at Pairc Ui Chaoimh this weekend.
“Saturday is a Munster final and I’d take your right hand off for a one-point win right now,” he insisted when speaking to the Irish Daily Star.
Despite the impressive 3-18 to 2-4 win for the Kingdom in the corresponding fixture last year and the Rebel County’s relegation to Division 3, recent Cork results on the challenge game circuit has Keane on high alert going into the local derby.
“They’ve beaten a Dublin team and a Galway team.
“They were well up against Donegal in the second last round of the League, but just lost it. Something went against them. They beat Armagh.
“They’ve seven of their last eight games won. That’s a very strong driving momentum going into a Munster final.”Tweet
