Bellamy set to be named Wales manager

The 44-year-old Craig Bellamy has emerged as the Football Association of Wales’ (FAW) top choice to replace Rob
Page, who was sacked last month. Currently at Burnley, where he had been acting head coach prior to Scott Parker’s
recent appointment, Bellamy is now poised to step into the managerial role for the Wales national team.

Despite Parker’s interest in retaining Bellamy at Burnley, the former Wales captain seems keen on managing his national
team. BBC Sport Wales reports that the final details of a deal are still being negotiated with both Bellamy and Burnley,
but an appointment appears to be imminent. This will conclude the search to replace Page, who was dismissed in June
after Wales failed to qualify for Euro 2024.

Bellamy has consistently expressed his ambition to manage Wales and recently met with senior FAW officials. Although
other notable candidates, including Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, Georgia’s Willy Sagnol, and Oxford United’s Des
Buckingham, were considered for the position, Bellamy’s impressive discussions have secured him the opportunity to
lead Wales in their qualification campaign for the 2026 World Cup.

His tenure as Wales manager will begin with a Nations League home tie against Turkey on 6 September, followed by an
away match against Montenegro on 9 September. Bellamy, who made 78 appearances for Wales before retiring from
international football in 2013, missed out on playing in a major tournament when Wales qualified under Chris Coleman
two years later.

Bellamy began his coaching career with Cardiff City’s academy and later served as assistant manager to former Manchester
City teammate Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht and then at Burnley.
