Reo Coker slams Craig Bellamy

Bolton midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker has stated that he has no respect for Liverpool’s Craig Bellamy, after the pair clashed in the weekend’s game.

The duo squared up in The Trotters’ 3-1 win over Kenny Dalglish’s men on Saturday, in a continuation of long-standing confrontation between the pair.

Despite Bellamy’s controversial outlook, Reo Coker has stated that he is unfazed and will let his football do the talking.

“I’ve got no respect for Bellamy. He can do whatever he wants to do but I don’t give a damn about him. It’s football,” the central midfielder told Mirror Football.

“I’m from the old school. I’m not a bully or someone who runs out my mouth so to speak. I get on with football, but if someone brings it to me I’ll handle it.

“I’m not concentrating on him, he’s not a big factor in this. It’s all about the team and the team performance, and we were fantastic.

“There was no neutral who watched the game, who could say we didn’t deserve that win,” he concluded.
