Craig Bellamy Anticipates City Return

Craig Bellamy Anticipates City Return

Craig Bellamy admits his days on loan at Cardiff City may be numbered even if the Championship side are promoted at the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Welsh international told WalesOnline.com...

'Even if Cardiff were promoted, it's very unlikely I'd stay here. I don't want to be on loan anywhere next season. If we got promoted, Cardiff would have to buy me.'

'It sounded romantic in August but if we look at it money-wise, it's probably not going to happen.'


After his much-publicised falling-out with manager Roberto Mancini, Bellamy knows a return to Manchester City will not make for an easy life.

'It is difficult because I do have another year at City,' added Bellamy. 'I could be at Man City the whole year and not be involved.'

'It will be an uncomfortable situation for everyone because Mancini will be in charge. There's nothing I can do. He is the manager, he chooses the squad and rightly so.'


With only 12-months remaining on his City contract will Craig stay or will move to pastures new? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section directly below this article.

Put it this way..there are matches we have played this season where we needed Bellamy. United are terrified of him, as are Chelsea. He would be great to have in the squad for the semi

All well and good Craig, but you need to respect the manager and therefore the club first. Which generally means taking an adult approach in discussing your specific training requirements with the club's senior staff and not asking for an advance on your wages for some strange reason. You're a good player Craig, but you've been proved to be expendable and you've also hardly set the Championship on fire. If you do come back, we should all expect some humility and respect in the way that the club made it possible for you to play for your 'hometown' team.

sounds like he's trying to force a permanant move, using a "threat" of returning and upsetting Mancini, OR angling for Citeh to sub his wages at Cardiff for another year,,,,

I'd sell him to be honest and I loved him at the club, he is just more trouble than he's worth at this point. Almost 32 with the knees of a 52 year old, his pace is declining and he hasn't lit the Championship up, though has been good at Cardiff (when fit) and his goal against Swansea was a peach. I'm sure Mancini or whoever the manager is next season can find another winger.
