Cliff Jones Believes Bellamy Should Be Given Coaching Job

The former Tottenham winger, Cliff Jones, has said that the Football Association of Wales should give some kind of coaching responsibility to the recently retired player Craig Bellamy.

Bellamy featured for the last time in club football in May this year for Cardiff City against Chelsea.

He called it a day saying that taking the pressure of professional football was not possible for him anymore.

He had already quit international football last year. So, that was technically the last game of the playing career of Bellamy.
Bellamy has said a few times in his interviews that he would not mind trying his luck in the field of coaching/ management once his playing days are over and Jones reckons that the 34-year old can really turn out to be a good coach.

Speaking about Bellamy yesterday, Jones who has been a league winner with the Spurs said, “He’s a terrific lad. I have always liked him as a player. His intensity might be a little low in some matches, but, he was a match winning player and I truly believe that he can make a lot of difference as coach too.”

“Craig is also a proud son of his country. So, if he is asked, he would be more than happy to do the Welsh job.”
In his 15-year long international career, Bellamy played for two teams i.e. Wales and Great Britain.

He represented Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics after being included in the squad as one of the three veterans along with Ryan Giggs.

For Wales, Bellamy made a total of 78 appearances and found the back of the net 19 times.

Bellamy played for the top clubs like Liverpool and Manchester City in the latter parts of his career. It was Liverpool from where he had taken transfer to Cardiff City in 2012.
