David Clifford is the best minor football player, at least for Jack O’Shea

The Kerry legend said O’Shea is a shoo in as starter in the All-Ireland SFC semi-final replay tomorrow if possible.

“I think he could play next Saturday, if I had the chance I’d play him! He’s old enough, he’s big enough, a phenomenal talent, probably the best I’ve ever seen at this age.” O’Shea said after being inducted in the GAA Museum Hall of Fame.

O’Shea added that not only is the youngster good in the field, he is also a good person outside.

“I just think he has a football brain and his vision, he has everything. He’s not selfish, he lets it go to the other fellas. So he’s a real find for the future.”

AFL clubs are starting to court Clifford after the latter scored 1-10 against Cavan in the All-Ireland MFC semi-final.
