Once again, this former Liverpool and West Ham forward has made the headlines for the wrong reason, although it seems as though he was on the receiving end of some stick for once. Is there any other player in the Premier League who has the propensity to shoot their mouth off at such a prolific rate?
The Independent reports that Craig Bellamy couldn’t just quietly take part in a friendly against Poland on Wednesday evening. The Welshman appears to have got caught up in a slanging match with a supporter after their team’s 1-0 defeat in the Algarve.
After the game Craig Bellamy was the target of abuse from a supporter. The Manchester City striker engaged in a finger-pointing response, and shouted back before being led away. Bellamy said: “I don’t want to make any fuss about it. It always seems to be me, though. I have shown my commitment to Wales by turning up for these sorts of games, but it is me that always seems to get picked on for stick. I’m passionate about my country, maybe too passionate at times.”
Is the Manchester City striker an easy target for supporters and opposition players, who know that he’s likely to react to provocation? Controversy has followed Bellamy around throughout his career, both on and off the pitch, most notably for an incident with a golf club and John Arne Riise while at Liverpool. Is he the feistiest player in the top flight?
