Bellamy still believes in Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy believes that Liverpool can qualify for the next round of the Champions League. He said that it will be difficult for them against Napoli but he believes that they have the necessary skills and resources to win the game.

He said that Liverpool has really grown in stature this season and that it is no coincidence that they are at the top of the Premier Leauge. He believes that players such as Salah, Firminho, and Mane have the necessary experience to play in these type of games and he is sure that they will be able to get a positive result in this game.

Craig Bellamy hails Christian Eriksen as a world-class player

Former Liverpool star Craig Bellamy believes Christian Eriksen can be classified as a world-class player after having watched his efforts for club and country over the past few years. The Denmark international was initially hit and miss kind of midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur but he has made immense progress under Mauricio Pochettino to become one of the first members on the team sheet.

As such, Bellamy has no doubts over the progress of the former Ajax graduate and the Welshman believes the midfielder could be put on the bracket among the world’s best, he said:“I don’t think I’m over-exaggerating this but I do class him as a world class player – a top bracket player. I really do, he’s that good. You can see with Denmark that everything goes through him; if they’re going to create anything going forward it goes through him so he made the difference in that team.”

Craig Bellamy poses his concern regarding Chelsea star Eden Hazard

Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has said that Eden Hazard has the tendency to show up only when he feels like doing and that could hurt the club in the long-term. The Belgium international started the campaign in fine fashion with five goals from as many matches for the Blues before they witnessed a goalless stalemate at the hands of West Ham United.

Speaking after that game, Bellamy highlighted that Hazard had the tendency to choose games where he would perform and may not turn up when he has had enough with the manager, he said: “He picks and chooses. If I was Barcelona or Real Madrid of course I’d want him but I’d be concerned about his dips in performances. Once he’s had enough of a manager, he isn’t sure whether he will turn it on.”

Craig Bellamy believes Pep Guardiola could take Riyad Mahrez to the next level

Former Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy believes Pep Guardiola could transform Riyad Mahrez into a much better player than he was at Leicester City. The Algeria international joined the Premier League champions for a club-record £60m fee last month and he has since shown glimpses of his old self in pre-season.

Speaking to Star Sports, Bellamy hailed Mahrez as a ‘top player’ and he is intrigued to see how he develops under the tutelage of Guardiola, he said: “He’s been a top player, he’s done a great job at Leicester. It’s a great time for him to move on. He’s just another option. I know it’s difficult obviously because of the money that they’ve spent but it was going to take that type of money to get him out of there. I’m interested to see how he improves Mahrez. The best thing with Guardiola, he improves players, he makes them better.”

Craig Bellamy provides transfer advice for Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy believes the Reds should pursue one or two signings during the summer transfer window in order to compete with Manchester City for the Premier League title next season. The Reds finished 25 points off the Premier League holders last season but Bellamy is still giving them a chance of winning the English crown with a couple of shrewd signings this summer.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Bellamy said: “You have to be optimistic about Liverpool next year. They have one or two players coming in. They need one or two players more. There is every chance they can compete with Man City. They have the firepower. They have the manager in Jurgen Klopp. They are a serious threat.”
Liverpool did not fare well against the top-six teams on the road last season but their overall performance against Manchester City was impressive to say the least. The Reds encountered the Citizens on four occasions in all competitions last term and out of those, they managed to outclass Pep Guardiola’s side on three occasions with top-notch performances throughout the team.

Craig Bellamy Expresses Anthony Martial’s Frustration

Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has revealed that Anthony Martial has been frustrating to the neutral point of view during the second half of the campaign. The France international has had a strong campaign for United with 21 goals and assists across all competitions, but his form has nosedived since Alexis Sanchez’s arrival during the winter transfer window.

Craig Bellamy Believes Arsene Wenger Should Walk Away

Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy believes Arsene Wenger should consider his Gunners position at the end of the season as his reputation is down the line. The Frenchman has struggled to find any motivation in his players over the past few months, and this has seen their season disintegrate with disappointments in the FA Cup, League Cup as well as the Premier League.

Brendan Rodgers hails Celtic players after Partick win

Celtic head coach Brendan Rodgers has praised the efforts of his players after their 2-0 triumph over Partick Thistle in the Scottish Premiership. The reigning champions suffered a shock 4-0 defeat at the hands of Hearts in the previous outing, and this saw their 69-match unbeaten run come to an end.

Speaking after the game, Rodgers was pleased with the response from his side after the hammering versus the Hearts. The former Liverpool boss also hailed the fitness levels of his side, who were playing their 36th competitive game of the campaign.

He said: "Collectively as a team we weren’t at our level against Hearts. But, most importantly, after disappointment you can learn and we’ve now come into the next two games and scored five goals while keeping clean sheets. I thought it was a very convincing win. The first half was a battle, which we expected, but I thought in the second half they were outstanding."


Philippe Coutinho had long been linked with a transfer to the Spanish side, Barcelona, with the Camp Nou dwellers already having bids rejected in the Summer Transfer Window, the last of which was 90million pounds.

Barcelona were urgently seeking a replacement for the recently sold Neymar Jr, who moved to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record fee of 198 million pounds.

Bellamy thinks Eriksen is destined for Spanish giants

Former Welsh striker Craig Bellamy has been lavishing the plaudits on Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen and believes it is only a matter of time before the playmaker leaves the UK shores for either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The Danish maestro has been in fantastic form for Spurs this season and they have surged into the top three in the Premier League.
