McGuinness on his coaching 'journey'
- From the section Northern Ireland
Jim McGuinness reveals that he had begun his coaching career even before winning an All-Ireland medal as a 19-year-old in 1992.
"I was deeply interested in coaching even before the All-Ireland and had been coaching the under-12s in the club and formulating ideas in my head," says the Donegal manager ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland Football semi-final against Mayo.
"I don't know why and where that came from. Probably to my detriment, I was player-manager with the club three or four times during my intercounty career.
"That was probably too much to take on but I always enjoyed that side of it."
