Craig Bellamy says he has resigned from his role as Cardiff City Under-18s manager as the club investigates alleged bullying.
Craig Bellamy has “categorically” denied the claim and vowed to clear his name in a statement released on Thursday morning.
“I am aware of allegations that have been made against me via the media,” he wrote. “I understand the need for Cardiff City to undertake a full investigation in response to these allegations and – at my own suggestion – I have temporarily removed myself from my coaching position in order to cooperate fully with the club’s inquiry.
“Obviously, I am saddened both by the allegations and the manner in which they were made and I categorically refute them. I fully expect to return to my coaching role and have sought legal advice as to my position. I will be making no further comment until the full investigation by the club has concluded.”
Earlier this week, it was reported that the parents of a young English footballer complained to the Premier League club about Bellamy’s behaviour towards their son, who has since left the club.
A regular pundit on Sky Sports, Bellamy scored 19 goals in 78 games for Wales and also had successful club stints with Liverpool, Manchester City and Newcastle. He finished his career in 2014 at hometown club Cardiff, where he was a key figure in their promotion to the Premier League in 2013.
