On Tuesday, Wales Football National team appointed Craig Bellamy as their new head coach.

The contract of Bellamy is until 2028. 

Bellamy replaced Rob Page, who was sacked after Wales' failure to qualify for Euro 2024.

The former Liverpool, Newcastle and Wales striker leaves Burnley, where he worked as an assistant to former manager Vincent Kompany last season as they were relegated from the Premier League.

Bellamy told the official website of the Wales football association: "I will give my full commitment to develop this team and I am passionate to bring continued success into Welsh football."

"I can't wait to get started with our Nations League games in September."

The FAW’s chief football officer, Dr David Adams, said: "I am absolutely delighted to announce Craig as our new head coach.

"We undertook a thorough recruitment process for the new men's national team head coach and Craig was identified as the standout candidate.

"We are all looking forward to the Nations League games and working with Craig to deliver success for Welsh Football."

Burnley chairman Alan Pace added: "I want to thank Craig for all his hard work during his time at Burnley and wish him the best for his new position as Wales manager.

"Craig has been a very important part of our wonderful journey the last two years. I've admired his leadership, knowledge and passion."
