Craig Bellamy bears no Manchester City grudges


Craig Bellamy insists there are no hard feelings towards Roberto Mancini following his departure from Manchester City.

Bellamy, 31, joined hometown club Cardiff City on a season-long loan in the Championship on Tuesday after being frozen out of the first-team picture at Eastlands this summer.

The Wales striker was left out of Mancini’s 25-man Premier League squad but claims he bears no grudge towards the Italian coach.

“There’s no ill feeling,” explained the well-travelled former Liverpool, Newcastle, West Ham and Blackburn frontman.

“I hope he does well, he’s a top manager.

“I had the greatest time at Manchester City at a great period in their history.

“I was bought to take the club on to the next stage and I feel I played a big part in doing that. The players they’re signing are incredible.

“The next couple of years I’m sure they’ll get the Premier League title and I hope they do.”
