Davy Fitzgerald Odds-On To Leave Wexford Hurling Post
Which Senior Team Will Davy Fitz Manager In 2020?
Davy Fitzgerald’s three-year deal with Wexford ends this year and it’s a short 2/5 chance that the All-Ireland winning manager will leave his post as their senior hurling manager with the pressure mounting on the 47-year old.
An epic clash awaits this Saturday at Wexford Park as the Yellowbellies take on Kilkenny with the home side priced at 7/4 to beat the Cats (8/13) again this year.
Brian Cody and Davy Fitzgerald are two of the sport’s longest serving managers and Fitzgerald will be hoping his team will progress to the Leinster final and win it for the first time since 2004.
A draw against Kilkenny however will ensure a top three finish which will see them compete in the All-Ireland series as Wexford seek their first All-Ireland title since 1996 at 20/1.
We have made it a 7/4 shot that the former Clare manager stays on as the Wexford manager for 2020 but…
it’s odds on at 4/7 that Fitzgerald leaves the Slaneysiders and returns to his native county.
Fitzgerald also had a stint as Waterford hurling manager in his first managerial role at inter-county level in 2008. He led Waterford to the All-Ireland final that season, however, the team suffered a 23-point defeat by three-in-a-row champions Kilkenny.
Fitzgerald stepped down as manager in 2011 and is 2/1 to return as the Déise manager next season.
