He may look like the result of a troll having sex with a much shorter troll, but Craig Bellamy has always been an incredibly dangerous striker when fit.
Now, it seems that his rollercoaster career thus far may take another twist this summer after it’s apparently come to light that he has a 6.5m pound release clause in his contract, prompting Mark Hughes to rightly step in to try to tie him up and avoid losing him for less than Andy Johnson cost Everton.
Craigsy, as his mum calls him, is one of the fastest players in the Premiership, looks quite comfortable setting up goals for others from the wing, and is a cracking finisher. If you aren’t sure what he can do besides send rude texts, you should probably take a gander at this.
“Bellers”, as his closest chums call him, should have no shortage of suitors around England and even abroad. Apparently Rafa Benitez has already earmarked the Welshman as the man to finally strike up some kind of vaguely prolific partnership with Peter Crouch – who after the World Cup will surely be able to add “Pele’s Player Of The Tournament” to his resume – and form the most comical looking duo in the Premiership.
So if the Bell-man really does have a release clause, which clubs would welcome him with open arms? Are Blackburn supporters sick at the notion of having Kuqi and Sinama up front?
