Colm Cooper has joined the management team of his club Dr Crokes for 2021.

The five-time All-Ireland winner will link up with the senior set-up led by manager Edmund O' Sullivan, who has been in charge since 2019.

Former Kerry great Cooper retired from inter-county football in 2017 after a career which yielded five All-Irelands, nine Munster SFC titles and eight All-Stars.

At club level, Cooper won a coveted All-Ireland title with Crokes in 2017 under then-manager Pat O'Shea, kicking 1-02 as the Killarney side overcame Derry's Slaughtneil in the decider.

In the lead-up to the pandemic-affected 2020 season, the 37-year-old lined out for the club's C team, telling RTÉ Sport: "I think a few of them got a shock the first day I played. They didn't know. I just landed in with the boots. As you can imagine, 'C' football in Kerry isn't massively professional. We went out, we played, we'd fun. But I think the guys got a bit of a kick off it as well."
