Wexford boss Davy Fitzgerald says he only ever considered staying with the Slaneysiders when the Galway managerial post became vacant back in September.

There had been strong speculation that the Model County supremo was headed west following Micheál Donoghue’s surprise departure.

However, speaking the Irish Daily Star, Fitzgerald insisted that it was never the case.

“Listen, all I’ll say to you (is), all my mind was on Wexford at the time, what I was going to do and what the story was going to be,” said Fitzgerald.

“I was just concentrating on a few personal issues and that was very important to me.”

He added: “I can’t say anything with regards to would I or wouldn’t I have gone anywhere. As I told you I didn’t talk to any other county board.”
