Tadgh Kennelly's future with the AFL side Sydney Swans looks doubtful after he was fired by the club as part of cuts due to Covid 19.
Kennelly, who played nearly 200 games for the Swans, before retiring in 2011, has been training at the club since 2017. Kerry's man, who won the Grand Final in 2005, worked at the club as a defense coach last season. RTE Sport that he should take over as coach of the midfield before Covid 19 is devastated by the world. Charlie Gardiner football club head inid: "We had to combine roles and look for efficiencies where we can find them to maximize the contribution of all roles within the 25 employees".
Gardiner continued: "This also resulted in the extension of the period of suspension of 10 full-time employees, while a large number of part-time and casual employees cannot be re-hired." The statement said that also Kennelly, two other employees were also not reinstated, such as Stuart Maxfield (opposition analyst) and Graig Holden (swan team manager).
The statement continued: "Everyone was a wonderful servant of the club – we are feeling for them and their families." In addition, the statement said: "We don't know what the future holds, as we continue to see the scenario change due to the pandemic." The club acknowledged that the "impact" of the changes will be felt for some time.
However, Gardiner said it was good to be back in terms of training, he told the Sydney Swans website: "It is exciting to be back, but there are still many challenges to be faced". He continued: "We are also working on a plan to ensure that all players remain in shape, as there will be no AFL involvement in second level competitions. It is unclear what the season will be like and we need to ensure that all players on our list are ready, in case we need to call them.
Kennelly made history in 2009, when he returned to Ireland to play and win the Irish football final with Kerry. Kerry won close to neighboring Cork in that 0-16 to 1-09 final. The Listowel man kicked two points that day.
