Sport Wales pay tribute to Gary Speed

Professor Laura McAllister, Chair of Sport Wales, Welsh Football Trust Board Member and former Wales Women's international, has today paid tribute to Gary Speed:
"Everyone at Sport Wales' thoughts are with Gary's family and friends at this hugely difficult time. Gary was a truly fantastic role model for everyone in the world of football.

"The way he conducted himself as a player, coach and most recently as national manager was exemplary. His recent success as Wales manager was complemented by a unique commitment to developing the game at all levels, from grassroots to the national team, ensuring that football was truly a game for everyone.

We are deeply saddened by the news today and know he will be missed by everyone involved in sport in Wales."
