CRAIG BELLAMY REJECTS GOAT'S DEBATE COMPARISON

Craig Bellamy, Storm super coach, has denied that he is one of the greatest league coaches of all time, despite having a third premiership and a fifth grand win.

Bellamy is seen as many to be up with Jack Gibson as one of the rugby greatest coaches, but the title doesn't sit well with him. Bellamy has said that it's a bit surreal and a little embarrassing when mentioned alongside Gibson. I wouldn't tie up the bootlaces of Gibson. I have been fortunate and have many great talents to coach, Bellamy added. Bellamy has managed the Storm to massive grand finals in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020. The Storm has also won three official titles in 2012, 2017, and 2020; the 2007 and 2009 titles were taken away from them because of the salary cap scandal

Andros Townsend makes bold claim about former teammate Gareth Bale

Andros Townsend believes his former Tottenham Hotspur teammate Gareth Bale would be wishing that he was playing for Spurs at the current point of time.

He still has two years remaining on his contract and reports claim that he could honour the remainder of the deal instead of parting ways with the club. This has already led to criticism from plenty of Los Blancos fans and Townsend, who played with Bale at Spurs, believes the forward would wish he had the freedom of playing for the north London side.

Zidane refuses to criticise Gareth Bale for recent Wales action

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has stated that Gareth Bale is an important player for Los Blancos and he is not concerned by what happens outside of the club. The Wales international recently helped his nation to qualify for Euro 2020 and during the celebrations, he happened to mock his club with a flag bearing ‘Wales. Golf. Real Madrid - In that order’.

As a result, there have been calls from numerous Los Blancos fans to sanction his departure but Zidane has stated that he won’t interfere into matters which happen away from the club’s surroundings, he told: “I am not going to answer that. If you look at what he has done for this club and those who really support the club, and those who come to the stadium, they know he is a Real Madrid player. You shouldn’t look at what goes on elsewhere. They have to support the team, the players, they have to get behind the side. And I will always support my players. Things might go on outside of the Real Madrid environment. But here, we are in this together.”

Ryan Giggs insists he is still learning as the Wales head coach

Wales manager Ryan Giggs has said that he is still learning the art of management despite coaching the nation for the past 16 months. The Manchester United legend has not enjoyed the best of fortunes since taking over the Wales job, but he remains optimistic that he can learn from the mistakes and become a better head coach.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Giggs said that he is still learning through the head coach role and has yet to find the right balance for the team, he told the publication: “I am learning. I'm still a relatively young coach. When there is such a short turnaround you have to decide whether you should pick players who should definitely be in the team or the ones who are playing. It's a definite factor for us that, for players who aren't playing regularly, two games in three days is very difficult - especially against top opposition. I'm still juggling with getting that balance right and you're not always going to be able to do that.”

Emery suggests Arsenal may not pursue a direct replacement for Ramsey

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has said that the club may not pursue a direct replacement for Aaron Ramsey when the transfer window reopens at the end of the campaign. The Wales international has already agreed a pre-contract with Juventus and he is scheduled to join the Bianconeri in the summer when his Gunners deal expires.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Emery suggested that the club may not necessarily enter the market to replace Ramsey, considering they have plenty of young players, who can progress from the academy, he said: “Yes, but there are also players coming through from the academy who are producing good performances and who could progress. We could replace him with a player from outside, or with a player who is already here who can grow like he did himself.”
