BELIEVE IN BETTER? McGUINNESS GETS READY FOR NEW ROLE AS SKY TV GAA PUNDIT

first_imgBelieve…In Better?HE USED to urge us to Believe – now Jim McGuinness will want football fans to Believe In Better…on Sky TV.Next Saturday’s Leinster meeting in Tullamore of Kildare and Laois is Sky Sports first offering this summer and presenter Rachel Wyse is looking forward to working with the ‘genius’ that is McGuinness.“He’s a genius when it comes to the game and breaking it down. We met him for about an hour or two, and sat down, just one-on-one,” says Wyse. “He drove up to us, he dropped his kids off to school. It’s very different I guess – from an Irish perspective it’s normal for me – but over here with the football managers, there’s the entourage and there’s the PR people. He just drove up to the hotel and sat down with us for two hours and just broke everything down throughout the season.“He’s got a fascinating insight into it. He’s away from the game now as such so I know that he’s excited to work with us as well this year. It’ll be nice to have him in the studio for the first one on the 6th (June).”Fellow Sky Sports presenter Brian Carney is seeking to get McGuinness’s thoughts on the theory that he provoked a ‘negative change’ in Gaelic football.“There’s an acccusation levelled at Jim that he’s responsible in some way for a change and maybe a negative change in football. I’m not sure I buy it. I can’t wait to sit down and talk with him, his thoughts on that and what he feels the general purpose of the game is,” he said.  BELIEVE IN BETTER?
