Wales assistant manager Rob Page, who is temporarily in charge of the side in Ryan Giggs’ absence has insisted that having Arsenal coach Albert Stuivenberg as part of his coaching staff will not be an issue for Gareth Bale.

Bale, as well as Ben Davies and Joe Rodon, have been called up for Wales’ games against the USA, Ireland and Finland.

Mourinho admitted last week that he is uncomfortable that Stuivenberg will be overseeing Bale during the international break and suggested that international teams should have their own separate coaching staff (Football.London).

The Athletic’s David Ornstein revealed that Tottenham boss’ words did not go down well at Arsenal considering Chris Powell, Tottenham’s head of coaching for the Under-17s to Under-23s is also a member of Gareth Southgate’s staff.

Page has now insisted that having Stuivenberg as part of the Wales coaching staff will not pose any conflict of interest and assured Mourinho that several Tottenham players have been part of their camps previously.
