O'Neill nearly got a 'proper job'

Northern Ireland head coach Michael O'Neill tells Football Focus how he nearly stayed in financial services at the end of his playing career instead of becoming a coach.

The former Newcastle United and Hibernian player says it has helped him in football management and put the "bad times" in perspective.

Northern Ireland play Latvia in a friendly on Friday after qualifying top of their group for Euro 2016 in France.
