Craig Bellamy: Well suited to management according to Malky Mackay

The Welsh winger, who turns 34 next month, has spoken this week of his desire to one day take charge of his current club and his country as well.

And Mackay believes Bellamy has what it takes to cut it as a manager when he decides to hang up his boots.

"Craig certainly has the desire, the football knowledge and the passion needed to manage," he told the South Wales Echo.

"So I don't see why he can't make it. The ones who are clever about it immediately throw themselves into the academic side of it and get their badges.

"They acquire as much knowledge as they can from good people.

"They then see what part of the game they can slot into, but you need passion and not to be afraid of hard work - and that sums Craig up."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
