Craig Bellamy plied his trade at such clubs as Newcastle United, Liverpool and Manchester City over the course of his career, but might well have played for Manchester United had his knee problems not ruined a move. The Welshman has now revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson made an approach for his services back in 2002, though his injury woes restricted any potential move from turning into a reality. At the time Bellamy would have been just finishing his first season as a Newcastle player, though in hindsight fans might claim they dodged a bullet. In more modern news Louis van Gaal has tipped both Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney for management in the future, after delivering an exclusive interview to the Daily Telegraph. The 63-year-old also claimed the Old Trafford job would be his last in football, so it’s quite the bombshell.
