Craig Bellamy has hit out at reports that he has been at the heart of a number of confrontations with Roberto Mancini over the sacking of previous boss Mark Hughes.
‘I want to stay and I am going to stay,’ stated the Welsh international, ‘I am committed to that. I am committed to Man City.
‘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.
Bellamy also stated that he will sue the papers responsible for discrediting him with the false allegations over his response to Hughes’ harsh dismissal, including reports that he had handed in a transfer request.
Harry Redknapp had been hoping to lure the fiery striker away from Eastlands in January, but now any talks of him leaving the club have been firmly quashed, with the 30-year-old ready for action under new boss Roberto Mancini.
‘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.’
