Mullane motivated by alleged comments from Fitzgerald

 

GAELIC GAMES:WATERFORD star John Mullane has revealed the reasons why he celebrated wildly in front of former boss Davy Fitzgerald during last Sunday’s Munster semi-final win against Clare at Semple Stadium.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Championship Matters last night, Mullane alleged that comments were passed by Fitzgerald about him to the father of another Waterford player.

After the match, Fitzgerald categorically denied claims that he said Mullane was “finished” and instead spoke in glowing terms about the All Star forward.

“We’ll sit down some day and we’ll have it out,” said Mullane. “We’ll talk it through.”

When pressed by presenter Marty Morrissey, Mullane said: “I’m not going to get into it – comments passed to another player’s father. I didn’t take it too kindly.”

Asked if Fitzgerald had claimed he was “finished”, Mullane replied: “More or less along them lines – I don’t want to get into the ins and outs of who said what, but we had it out in the dressingroom after the game and Davy came out and said he didn’t say it.”
