FOOTBALL ‘addict’ Danny McConnell says he is relishing a return to Ulster Senior League management.
McConnell was last night confirmed as the new manager of Letterkenny Rovers.
Appointed as successor to Eamon McConigley, who will stand down at the end of the current season, McConnell – who guided Rovers to an Ulster Senior League title in 2005 – will get to work immediately.
Out of management since moving to England following a short stint at Swilly Rovers ten years ago, McConnell can’t wait to get back into the dugout.
“Ive been watching football day and night since I came back,” he told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.
“I wanted back into it. The opportunity came and I went for it.
“This was always the drug here. I can’t wait. Football is an addiction to me.”
Rovers still have the finals of the Donegal News USL League Cup and Knockalla Caravans Senior Cup to bring the curtain down on this campaign and McConnell is already eyeing up a challenge to Cockhill Celtic’s dominance of the USL stage.
He said: “Cockhill are the opposition to look up to and they’re the team to catch. Winning the League has to be the goal.”
