Veteran rugby league coach Craig Bellamy declined to rule out a transfer offer to the Cronulla Sharks, saying he was “still interested”.
Rumors about Bellamy’s future have been swirling for a few years, with several clubs linked to the 61-year-old, who spent 19 seasons at the Melbourne Storm.
Clubs have lined up for a chance to trap the legendary coach with Storm, Cronulla, Brisbane and even the new NRL franchise looking to enlist Bellamy as director of coaching. Bellamy is expected to make a decision this week.
Speaking to Nine’s Danny Weidler, the supercoach refused to rule out a move to Sydney where he would have an offer on the Sharks table.
“When Storm’s coach Craig Bellamy was asked today about a possible transfer to Cronulla, he said, ‘I’m still interested,'” Weidler tweeted.
It is understood that Bellamy would have to accept the offer that he would be appointed supervisor given the recent signing of Craig Fitzgibbon, who will coach the Sharks from 2022.
Earlier in the season, eighth immortal Andrew Johns scoffed at Bellamy’s “ridiculous” idea of making a shock change to Cronulla.
“I’m more likely to lobby at an AA meeting than Craig Bellamy to go to the Sharks,” Johns said on Nine’s Freddy and the eighth.
“It just won’t happen.”
