Jim Gavin says Kerry have arrived already and should not be seen as a developing side.

While the general consensus ahead of the 2019 All-Ireland final appears to be that the Kingdom are still a work in progress, Dublin’s history-making manager argues that the Munster champions are already a force to be reckoned with:

“That’s not a team that’s developing, that’s a serious team,” he is quoted in The Irish Sun. ““They’ve had a lot of experience with that core group and their time is right now, it’s not next year.

“They’re on the money and we’re going to have to execute a performance to try and be up there with them and hopefully up there at the end.

“We got a real close look at them in February when we played them. Obviously they were full of running, I was acutely aware that they had done a heavy pre-season back in November so that carried through, they were very fit and full of energy and they were a very impressive side in close-up.

“That was good to see in some respects. And then to see their journey through the National League, they were very accomplished.”
