    Cheers. That is a good interview :50:

    ( Off topic but that is how interviews should be when you have someone interesting to listen to then just listen to them. No every * has to try and be Paxman)

    Former Donegal senior football manager Jim McGuinness has accepted a position as assistant coach with Chinese club Beijing Sinobo Guoan.

    He was offered the post by Roger Schmidt, the former Beyer Leverkusen manager who was announced as Beijing’s new manager early in June. McGuinness, who has been part of the coaching staff at Glasgow Celtic since 2012, will travel to Beijing on Saturday to take up his new role on Monday.

    “It’s a fantastic opportunity,” he said yesterday. “It’s a level up for me and a great honour to be asked. Roger is a really prestigious European coach and just to be part of his management team is a great privilege. I also feel that it’s great timing in terms of taking the next step forward in my own coaching career.

    “In terms of Celtic, every decision that was made was with their knowledge. Dermot Desmond, in particular, was implicit in any decision made. And I’d like to think that the umbilical cord won’t be cut. Everyone in the club has been hugely supportive and hopefully I will return there someday as a better coach.”


    He has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract with Beijing, which is the period for which Schmidt has agreed terms. The offer came out of the blue but McGuinness had met with the German on several occasions over the past two years after being invited to Leverkusen by one of the club psychologists he met in Bilbao two summers ago.

    “I happened to mention that I found Leverkusen’s style of play very interesting as Roger was one of the coaches whose approach I was studying very closely. And then we met at one of their Champions League games. And he was very generous with his time. He gave me a few hours on the afternoon of the game.

    Was writing about Donegal in work recently and thinking what an absolute legend of GAA this guy is. Sad to see him go.

    Only because he refused to kneel at the altar of Jam Gavin and the dubs.The Irish sports media should remove their tongue from Dublin's *.

    I mean Cluxton, one of the greatest ever players who has revolutionised the game of Gaelic football :giggle1:

    I was on one of the Dublin fb pages and said that cluxton is the best keeper in Ireland, but that was only because papa was now living in unites Arab emirates. They banned me from the page

    Taken up a post as manager of Charlotte Independence in North Carolina.

    In what appears to be the third tier in the USA.

    Strange

    Nice place to live and probably sweet pay, hopefully working up to taking over at an MLS team.
