McGuinness hints that he could stay
JIM McGUINNESS (pictured) has hinted that he could serve a fifth year in the Donegal hotseat.
There has been a fairly widespread assumption that the charismatic Donegal boss would step down after the All-Ireland SFC final against Kerry on Sunday week, but the man himself has now indicated that his future plans remain up in the air.
"It's the last year of a four-year term - but that doesn't mean that I won't be back next year," he told Newstalk.
McGuinness, chasing his second All-Ireland in three seasons, has a hectic dual schedule given his professional role with Celtic FC in Glasgow.
Meanwhile, he has endorsed the benefit of collective training camps as Donegal fine-tune for this year's final with a stint at the Lough Erne resort, coming after a five-day camp in Johnstown House before their semi-final against Dublin.
"When you get away for four or five days, then it's like the icing on the cake. It's the thing that pulls it all together," McGuinness enthused.
