Fan favourite Craig Bellamy has revealed that he is fully committed to the Blues, however, he fears he wont make the cut.
A revelation since arriving at Eastlands, Bellamy has spoken at depth about his hopes and fears for the season ahead.
The Wales captain has openly stated that he is fearful of not making Roberto Mancini's 25-man squad and has even threatened to call a premature end to his career.
'I feel strongly that I can offer something at the club,' said Bellamy, 'But if I don't get in the 25-man squad, I don't know what I will do.
'I might finish, full stop, or look at every option I get.
'This game is as ruthless as any. I sort of feel I am not going to be part of [the squad]. I can see it from a distance.
'I find that very difficult to take because I really enjoy playing for Manchester City. I think I have shown that with my commitment this year.'
The fiery forward revealed that he had turned down an offer from Steve McLaren's Wolfsburg, but said that he is still keeping his options open in regards to a move away from Eastlands.
'I have to see what options I have. I am here to play football.
'With this 25-man ruling, it doesn't matter how well I train or how good my attitude is, I might not be registered to play.
'So do I go without playing football until January, or do I find myself a club where I can play football?
'I am committed to stay where I am. I feel I deserve to be part of it, but I don't pick the 25 or the team. I have to wait on their decision.'
Craig is not alone in his fears, with City fans desperate to keep the temperamental 31-year-old at the club.
His excellent work rate, combined with speed and ability have cemented him in the hearts of the fans, whether we wanted him there or not!
