Bellamy: I want to stay at City

Published Add your comment

Craig Bellamy has ruled out a move away from Manchester City and insists new manager Roberto Mancini has his full support.

The Welsh striker has been linked with a move away from City in the January transfer window but he has dismissed claims that the exit of his countryman Mark Hughes will have any impact on his future at Eastlands.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I want to stay and I am going to stay. I am committed to that. I am committed to Man City."

He added: "I have bought into the idea of where Man City is going to go and I am a huge part of where it is at this stage.

"I have no problem with Mancini. It's not his problem he's here. What happened to Mark Hughes has got nothing to do with him.

"I hope Mancini will stay for a long time because I am from the mould of thinking stability is the key to success. I hope he gets a number of years to do it and, as long as I last, I will give my all for him."
