Craig Bellamy has been named as the new Wales manager.

Bellamy succeeds Rob Page – who was sacked last month – after turning down the opportunity to stay at Burnley under new manager Scott Parker.

He has signed a contract until 2028.

Senior FAW (Football Association of Wales) figures including chief executive Noel Mooney and technical director David Adams had been at the heart of the search for Wales’ new manager.

Bellamy, 44, is a former Wales captain who played 78 times for his country between 1998 and 2013.

“It’s an incredible honour for me to be given the opportunity to lead my country and it’s the proudest moment of my career,” Bellamy said in a statement released on the FAW’s official website.

“It was always my ultimate dream to become the Cymru head coach and I am ready for the challenge.

“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.”

Bellamy’s first game in charge will be on Friday September 6, when Turkey visit the Cardiff City Stadium.
