Vincent Tan, the Malaysian businessman and investor who owns Cardiff City football club seems set to start Craig Bellamy on managerial road with Under-18s role.
The Welsh man played for Cardiff 91 times and helped them into the Premier League in 2013 with 6 goals in 55 appearances, the first time they had been in the top-flight for half a century. By scoring for Cardiff, the ex-Liverpool man became the first player in Premier League history to score a goal for seven different teams.
Hull City had managed to put Chris Coleman in a dilemma by making a tempting offer to him, but, as the former Swansea City player recalled the happy faces of the fans that he had seen on his return from Euro, he quickly shrugged the thought of switching the job off his head and said no to the Yorkshire club.
Coleman confesses to have got interested in the offer for a second or two because it had come from the Premiership which is an aspiration for any coach.
Craig Bellamy has responded angrily to Jack Wilshere’s comments about England being the better team than Wales at the Euro 2016.
The Arsenal midfielder was speaking ahead of the meeting between the two teams in the group stages. After having started the Euro 2016 with a 2-1 win over Slovakia, there is now less pressure on Wales to get three points against England. In the meantime, the rivals could only manage a 1-1 draw with Russia in the opening group match. After having failed immensely in recent major tournaments, the pressure is on England to get a result against Wales.
London hosted the last Olympics back in 2012 and the football tournament is not one to forget in a hurry.
The Football Associations of the rest of Great Britain told England that they did not want their players from being picked for the competition, leaving England largely on their own. Stuart Pearce was in charge of the football team of Great Britain. It was difficult but the coach was able to force some Welsh players into the team.
Dimitri Payet has been one of the players that has sparked life to the 2016 Euro’s as the Frenchman is one of the standout performers of the international competition after having scored against Romania and Albania.
France are considered to be one of the favorites of winning the 2016 Euro’s and considering that they have top and well known players such as: Antoine Griezmann, Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane, Patrice Evra and Yohan Cabaye, just to name a few of the more well-known and recognized players in the French national football team.
The former footballer Craig Bellamy is extremely confident that the Welsh national football team will be able to make it past the group stages of the 2016 Euro’s and this will not be an easy task to accomplish, especially considering the fact that Wales was pitted in the same group as England, Russia and Slovakia.
The Football Association of Wales wants Craig Bellamy as their next coach
With Chris Coleman’s current contract due to expire this summer, the Football Association of Wales is currently working on his replacement.
There is still talks going on with Coleman about a new contract, but the Association is also working on alternatives in case the current coach does not want to renew his contract.
Not everyone is impressed with the performance of Kevin Proctor. While some fans and players are impressed with his performance, on the other end of the spectrum, manager Craig Bellamy definitely isn’t.
The Melbourne Storm boss definitely isn’t impressed with this latest injury and he believes that Kevin Proctor must prove his level of fitness. This comes as the Storm went to head to head with the Newcastle Knights on Saturday, and Bellamy shared his concerns with some of the form recently and his selection headaches.
Chris Coleman doesn’t think that there is any question of his team suffering because of him not having had an agreement yet with the association regarding getting his contract extended.
Some of the people feel that entering the Euros with no guarantees of the future might distract Coleman a little bit, but, according to the 45-year old former defender, if he agrees to a new deal or not, it has got nothing to do with his Euro preparations.
Cardiff City legend Craig Bellamy claims that he was offered the opportunity to manage the club a few years ago, but he turned down the opportunity since he felt that the club needed a much better manager than him.
The former Liverpool and Manchester City striker revealed that Cardiff approached him when they were just back in the Championship. Owner Vincent Tan was very keen on reviving the Premier League dream of the club. Bellamy would have commanded instant respect upon arriving as the manager, but he felt that the lack of experience made him an unwise choice at that time.
