Bellamy: Don't worry, GB happy

Published Add your comment

Wales international Craig Bellamy is not interested in the politics surrounding Team GB, only the chance to be involved at London 2012.

Much had been made of the reluctance of the Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish associations to give their blessing to the unified GB team. Five Wales internationals have included in the 18-man squad and Bellamy is among those as one of three overage players and is not too bothered about the political side of things.

"I never heard anything about that," he told Press Association Sport, speaking at Team GB's Preparation Camp at Loughborough University. "I am just happy to be involved in this and to have this opportunity. I would have always loved to be involved in this and how could you not? I have not heard anything elsewhere. I am not about politics, I am just here to play football."
