Kennelly sets his D-Day

TADGH KENNELLY has set himself a Monday deadline to decide whether or not he will return to the AFL.The Kerry player also said last night that there are a couple of teams chasing his services.

“I’ve got until Monday morning (to decide),” Kennelly told RTÉ radio.

“It’s pretty serious,

“I’ve got a few days to think about it. The major situation for me is a lifestyle situation.

“Going back playing a professional game and getting up every morning – or do I want to come home and win a few All-Irelands with Kerry? At the moment I’m very much 50/50.

“There is (a contract on the table) from a couple of clubs. My first thing is to decide do I want to go back and the next thing is where will I go.

“I love being a home and that’s the big pull at the moment. There’s a lot to go through and I need a few days to decide.

“It’s funny because Jack O’Connor was trying to get in contact with me and so he rang (his brother) Noel and asked ‘so where’s his mind?’ and Noel tells him he doesn’t know, ‘one day he’s going, next day he’s not’. That’s the way it is, it’s very hard, I almost want someone to make the decision for me.

“It’s like when I left when I was 18, I’ll lay down the pros and cons and take it from there. I’ve made a few big decisions in my life so I’m used to it.”
