Bellamy reveals career-ending fears

Published Add your comment

Manchester City striker Craig Bellamy fears he may only have two years left in his career.

Bellamy, 30, has been dogged by injuries, mainly a knee problem, and feels the end could be on the horizon. He is currently suffering from a groin problem that saw him miss Wales' victory against Scotland at the weekend.

"I know there are not four or five years ahead of me with the injuries I have had," Bellamy told Sky Sports. "Maybe I have got one or two years at the most. It will be all over before I know it, so I am just enjoying it."

Bellamy has scored five goals this season and is relishing playing under manager Mark Hughes.

He said: "Everything at Manchester City has gone well for me from start to finish.

"It is so professional here. The manager is clever - he doesn't want to give any of the players reason to moan. He makes sure the only thing you have to concentrate in is football."

Hughes expects Gareth Barry to shrug off a groin problem and face Liverpool on Saturday.

Barry suffered some discomfort following England's defeat by Brazil in a friendly last week.

Hughes said: "Gareth came back from the international with a little bit of soreness but it should not be a problem for the weekend."
