Colm “Gooch” Cooper believes that previous encounters between his Kerry team and the old enemy, Cork, are meaningless and that both teams will be fired up to reach the Munster Football Final.
The Kingdom must travel to Páirc Uí Chaoimh on June 10th and beat the Rebels in their own back garden to reach the final but star forward Cooper is looking for a good game for the fans, as well as that crucial win.
“With Kerry v Cork clashes, the formbook goes out the window”, said Cooper.
“I think it’s all on the day and we’ll be just hoping we can raise our game for it. Whether it’s in Killarney or Páirc Uí Chaoimh, it’s a very special day, especially for both sets of supporters. They love to get one over on each other.”
Cooper also believes that neither side are worried about what they may have to do should they lose and is convinced that both sides will be resolute in their quest for Munster glory.
“The players know each other very well. No team will be worrying about the back-door”, continued Cooper.
“Both teams will be going out to try and win that day and get into the Munster final and that’s what it is all about.”
