GAA | Jim McGuinness in "informal" arrangement with Galway footballers

Jim McGuinness is involved in the Galway footballers preparations for the delayed 2020 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship.

Footage has been circulated of the former Donegal manager issuing instructions at a Galway training session at St Jarlath's Park in Tuam on Sunday.

McGuinness has not been involved with an inter-county team since Donegal's 2014 All-Ireland final defeat to Dublin, and has since spent time coaching in Celtic, China and America.

According to RTÉ Sport, the 2012 All-Ireland winning manager has an "informal arrangement" with the Tribesmen ahead of the return of the National League.

McGuinness and Galway manager Pádraic Joyce previously played in the Sigerson Cup together for Tralee IT, winning a national title in 1999.

Galway have earned plenty of plaudits for their performances under Joyce, and sit atop the pile in Division 1 of the Allianz National League ahead of its resumption next week.

Joyce's men will face bitter rivals Mayo and All-Ireland champions Dublin in their final two league games of the 2020 campaign, before taking on Sligo in a Connacht semi-final next month.
