Chris Coleman: 'Gary Speed will never be forgotten'

Wales coach Chris Coleman says that he is still getting over the death of his late friend Gary Speed.

Wales coach Chris Coleman has paid tribute to former Dragons manager Gary Speed.

The Welshman was found dead in his home in Huntington, Cheshire on November 27, 2011.

"Forget the football, Gary was a great guy, different class," the Daily Mail quotes Coleman as saying. "I was lucky enough to have known him for a long time.

"He's greatly missed - I still miss him. I will always miss him. I can't believe it's a year ago. You don't ever forget something like that. I will probably never get over it.

"You try to deal with it as time goes on. But you don't forget someone like Gary. We never will. It will be a difficult day and Christmas will be difficult for his family, but we are all here to support them."

Coleman replaced Speed as the Wales coach in January 2012.
