first_imgJim in action for Donegal!JIM McGUINNESS HAS been called in to help inspire English rugby giants Saracens to European glory.The club wanted the Glenties’ man’s motivational powers ahead of their preparations for Saturday’s European Champions Cup semi-final showdown against Clermont Auvergne.McGuinness this week became the latest in a long line of sporting figures to address Saracens’ first-team squad. In the past, they have called upon the likes of American athlete Michael Johnson, former motor racing world champion Jackie Stewart and ex-England cricket captain Andrew Strauss, in addition to polar explorers and army generals.“We bring speakers in on a regular basis,” Saracens rugby director Mark McCall said of hiring McGuinness, now a coach at Glasgow Celtic.“Jim McGuinness was the Donegal football manager for four seasons. He’s currently the sports psychologist at Celtic and he was Paul McGinley’s right-hand man at the Ryder Cup in 2014.“When he took over at Donegal in 2010, they hadn’t won a game for three seasons and hadn’t won a championship for 19 seasons. “He took them on a journey over four years and it seemed like a very similar journey to our own.“He captivated the group for an hour. He is an extremely passionate speaker and he was fantastic for the players, who really enjoyed it.“I am not from Donegal, but I studied the story from afar and admired what he did. He had a very interesting story.”Saracens will face a Clermont side in St Etienne that crushed reigning Aviva Premiership champions and quarter-final opponents Northampton 37-5 just 11 days ago. ENGLISH RUGBY GIANTS SARACENS HIRE JIM McGUINNESS AHEAD OF EUROPEAN CUP BID was last modified: April 16th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:coachJim McGuinnessSaracensspeakerlast_img read more
