Anfield new boy ready for another chance to impress.
Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy is hoping to get another chance to play alongside team-mate Luis Suarez.
The Welshman linked up with the Uruguay international to score his first goal since returning to the club in the 2-1 Carling Cup win over Brighton.
Bellamy is delighted to be up and running but credits the goal to the player who has helped rejuvenate the Reds since his arrival from Ajax last January.
“I managed to link up with Luis Suarez who is such an impressive player and it was a good feeling,” Bellamy said. “It was a nice goal and I was pleased with it.”
The 32-year-old has a reputation for causing trouble but manager Kenny Dalglish has nothing but praise for Bellamy since his arrival from Manchester City in the summer.
“We knew what we were getting when Craig came in,” the Liverpool boss said. “We’ve said many times before what Craig brings to this football club.
“He had a year out last year when he played at Cardiff rather than in the Premier League and we are getting the benefit of that because he has got a hunger to come in and impress.
“He’s got a desire because maybe he went away with a bit of unfinished business the last time he left here.
“So he’s got a desire to relight that and we’ll get the benefit of it.
“He’ll make a contribution to the football club over the length of his contract and hopefully last night was just the beginning for him.
“He loves playing football and is really enthusiastic. He wants to do well and we’ll help him to do that all that we can.”
