Karl Lacey to join Donegal’s backroom team

Karl Lacey is set to join Donegal’s managerial backroom team in the following days.

Lacey will take up a coaching role under new manager Declan Bonner according to DonegalSportsHub.com

The former All-Ireland winning defender announced his retirement from inter-county football at the end of August.

His name will be put forward by Bonnor, who replaced Rory Gallagher last month, for ratification during the county committee meeting.

Lacey is regarded as Tir Chonaill County’s most decorated footballer.

He won the Footballer of the Year award in 2012 and took home three Ulster SFCS titles and a National League title.

He is set to join Anthony McGrath and Paul McGonigle in the backroom team.
