Ramsey leads tributes to Speed
27 Nov 2015 11:11
Wales midfielder Aaron Ramsey marked the fourth anniversary of Gary Speed's death with a poignant appreciation of the former national team manager.
Former Leeds, Everton, Newcastle, Bolton and Sheffield United midfielder Speed was boss of the Welsh national team - for whom he had also played - when he died in 2011 aged 42.
Ramsey, captain of the side under Speed, wrote on Twitter on Friday: "Remembering Gary Speed today. I know he'd be proud of what the Welsh team have achieved so far in getting to France."
Speed is widely credited with having laid the foundations for the success Wales have enjoyed under his successor Chris Coleman, who has guided them to qualification for next summer's European Championships in France - their first major finals in 58 years.
The team won five of their last seven games under Speed, whose final match in charge was a 4-1 friendly win in Cardiff over Norway on November 12, 2011. Just 15 days later the Football Association of Wales announced he had died.
