The United Approach: Paul McGuinness

Paul McGuinness was immersed in the world of Manchester United as a player and coach for 28 years.

Paul learnt his craft from his father Wilf, a Manchester United Manager and was mentored by the likes of Sir Alex Ferguson, Sir Matt Busby, Tony Whelan and more. PDP Editor Dave Wright sits down with Paul to discuss his personal journey, sharing incredible stories of the culture and family values of the club and how he and his colleagues instilled them in the academy.

Paul also speaks of his time coaching Paul Pogba, Jesse Lindgard and others, the use of mix aged groups, creative play and cage football. Having overseen 86 graduates at the Manchester United Academy, Paul is a man with a wealth of knowledge for all coaches to learn from.
