Ex-Welsh national team star Craig Bellamy is one of the many names being linked with the vacant managerial job at Cardiff City in the English Championship. Apart from Craig Bellamy, Welsh national team manager Rob Page, Michael Flynn and ex-Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder have all been linked with the Cardiff City job.

Cardiff City sacked Mick McCarthy as their manager in the aftermath of the 2-0 defeat to Middlesbrough in their penultimate game as far as the English Championship is concerned. Ex-player Steve Morison was named the caretaker manager at the Welsh club following the decision to sack ex-Republic of Ireland national team manager McCarthy. Morison was in the Cardiff City dugout when they came from three goals down to secure an impressive 3-3 draw at the home of Stoke City on Saturday.

Stoke City scored twice in the first sixteen (16) minutes to establish a 2-0 lead through Jacob Brown and Steven Fletcher. Fletcher added a second goal and a third Stoke City goal at the start of the second half. Cardiff City then showed fighting spirit to score three times in five minutes to earn a draw from the game.
The Cardiff City fightback started midway into the second half through young midfielder Rubin Colwill. Mark Harris came off the bench to score a second goal four minutes later before Welsh national team striker Kiefer Moore completed the comeback a minute later. Two goals in one minute and three goals in five minutes propelled the Bluebirds to a point.
Craig Bellamy is a former Cardiff City striker who spent two separate spells at the club during his playing career. The Welshman had a loan spell at the club as a Manchester City player during the 2010/11 season. His second spell at Cardiff City was a two-year period between 2012 and 2014.
