Davy Fitzgerald insists that winning the Allianz Hurling League isn't a priority for Wexford.

The Slaneysiders beat old rivals Kilkenny yesterday to set up a quarter-final meeting with Galway next Saturday, but Fitzgerald claims he “couldn’t give a f**k” if they go on to win the league for the first time in 46 years.

“I heard this rubbish on the f**king radio last night and it saying I’m mad to win the league. I couldn’t give a f**k, right. I just want to win every game I can win," the Wexford manager said.

“If we happen to win stuff, fine. If you ask me personally, I’d prefer to win the All-Ireland, that’s what I’d love to win and if the Leinster championship comes, great. And if the League comes, great.

“If I was targeting the league, why would I have used 26 different players? I’ve used more than Kilkenny have. I’m blooding lads and giving them a go.

"Trust me, if it comes and we’re there, brilliant, but I want our lads to be competitive in the summer."
