Clare hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald has cast doubt over whether he will still be in charge of the Banner men in 2017.

Fitzgerald, who underwent a minor heart procedure in the week of the Galway defeat, made the admission in RTE Radio One's 'Documentary On One' that saw Máire Treasa Ní Cheallaigh follow the Clare men since January 3.

Despite winning the National League, Clare will not see this year as a success after losing to Waterford in a Munster final and succumbing to defeat against the Tribesmen in their All-Ireland quarter-final.

Fitzgerald said: "I don't know what I want to do. Last year I knew 100% what I want(ed) to do.

"I could see myself managing someone else, do something different. Because I love hurling so much."

Kilkenny and Tipperary will lock horns in the All-Ireland decider in eight days time but Fitzgerald won't be tuning in.

"I'll not be watching the All-Ireland. I'll be golfing or doing something, I don't want to see it. I'd rather it was over and then I'd go over it again and start analysing it," he added.

"It's very hard when you've a team that could be in the All-Ireland that aren't there."
