Irish GAA manager could set for Liverpool or Celtic

Updated: October 9, 2012

Jim McGuinness has said that if a professional soccer team like Liverpool or Celtic were to enquire about his services then he would have to have a long hard think about quitting his role as Donegal manager.

The Donegal manager is seemingly in high demand following the Ulstermen’s brilliant All-Ireland victory this year, with Liverpool and Celtic enquiring about his availability in a sports psychologist role.

Speaking to Highland Radio, McGuinness said that if an offer did arise then he would have to be crazy not to consider a professional sporting career no matter which team it was.

“If anyone came to me to offer a position I’d sit down and talk to them about it,” said McGuinness.

“If a professional football team, or any professional sporting organisation, came in and said they were interested in talking about work, it is obviously something that I’d have to consider. I’m a young man with a young family and three kids and you would consider it.

“It would have to be something I would have to look at very seriously if there was going to be anything. Donegal is where I’m from and Donegal is my love and passion.”

However, the All-Ireland winning manager, who has worked with Irish football clubs Derry City and Limavady, was quick to stress that despite the rumours he hasn’t been approached directly by anyone.

“That isn’t the case at the moment and hasn’t been the case. Who knows what the future holds?” concluded McGuinness.
