The 33-year-old Cardiff city striker Craig Bellamy has revealed that he wants to get into management once his playing days are finished. The striker has represented the likes of Manchester city, Liverpool, and West Ham during his playing days.
He is currently with the Championship club Cardiff city, who are currently top of the Championship table. Bellamy is regarded as one of the best strikers from Wales, but his temperament has been questioned in the past. He has said that management is certainly an option for him once he retires from playing football.
He has gone through biographies of several great managers like the former Barcelona manager Guardiola. Bellamy has claimed that it is now his ambition to become the best manager in the world. Even if he is not successful at this, Bellamy has said that will be extremely satisfied with the hard work that he would have put in trying to become one. Bellamy has also spoken about the loss of his friend and the former Wales manager Gary Speed, who committed suicide a few years ago. Cardiff are looking to get promotion back to the top flight for the first time for more than four decades, and Bellamy has said that he cannot wait for the occasion.
“I am reading the biography of Pep Guardiola. I find it really interesting. I’m going to take a big time out and visit people like Marcelo Bielsa at Athletic Bilbao. I have a huge affection for him. There is no one better than Jose Mourinho for how he cherishes his players and their affection for him is unique. I want to become one of the greatest managers that has ever lived. Why not? If it doesn’t happen, then I’ve given everything and I’d be proud of whatever I’m able to achieve,” said Bellamy.
