And the Kilcar pundit says Donegal fans have a lot to answer for by building up their team’s chances.
Writing in today’s Irish Daily Star newspaper, McHugh says he thinks Kerry have too much for Jim McGuinness’ side
“My big fear for Donegal this weekend is the awful hype in the county. Donegal fans need to come down to the level of the players.
“If hype is not controlled it’s very dangerous, but I feel the players are level-headed enough to cope with it,” he said.
The All Ireland winning star said the present Donegal team are the fittest team ever to leave the county and will do everything they can against Kerry.
But he says he still thinks the men from the Kingdom have too much football for his own son Mark and his fellow players.
“I tipped Kerry to in the All Ireland form day one as they have the best footballers around.
“And I just think that they will have too much for Donegal,” he said.
