Anderlecht name Bellamy U21 coach

Former Manchester City, Liverpool and Newcastle striker Craig Bellamy has been named U21 coach at Anderlecht.

Bellamy joins the staff of new Anderlecht player-manager Vincent Kompany.

Anderlecht youth director Jean Kindermans said: “We are very happy with Craig's arrival at RSC Anderlecht.

"He has a lot of experience and will be a great mentor for our youth players mentally speaking, but also in terms of football skills.

"As coach of the U21 team, his task will be to prepare our young talents for the first team."

Sports director Michael Verschueren added: “The appointment of Craig proves we continue our efforts to improve our youth development.

“He will be working closely together with Vincent Kompany, Simon Davies and our Academy coaches to make the transition into the senior squad easier for our 'purple talents'."
