Bernard Brogan has hinted that he could postpone any potential retirement plans to play for Dublin in 2019.

The veteran forward suffered a serious knee injury that decimated his 2018 season. Brogan underwent surgery to repair extensive damage in his knee following an ACL rupture in training back in February.

The six time All Ireland winner made a miraculous recovery and managed to get back on the pitch despite suffering what was widely regarded as a season ending injury.

The 34-year-old made a cameo as a blood substitute in the comfortable win over Roscommon in the in the Super 8 series.

The St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh man says he still has to talk to Jim Gavin to find out if there is a role for him - but hinted he may continue for next season as Dublin bid to make history by becoming All Ireland champions for the 5th year in a row:

“Last year I wasn’t sure if I was going to come back and I sat down with Jim and I asked ‘can I add any value’ and I came back early I didn’t go on the holiday, I really motivated myself to get fit and I was flying early in the year but I probably overdid it and that’s where I fell down with the injury.

“Obviously the summer wasn’t the way I wanted it to be, as a footballer you always want to play and never want to give up so if I had of played all year and won another All Ireland I might have said ‘Jesus, that might be enough’  but there’s always that inkling ‘have I satisfied my thirst?’ I don’t think you ever can.”
