Is Craig Bellamy already fed up with his Brazilian teammates?

Reports claim there is a changing room divide at Manchester City

Manchester City celebrate

The Daily Mail claim that one of Manchester City’s four January signings is so frustrated with Robinho and Elano’s attitude that he has demanded that someone “sort them out”.

Considering three of those new arrivals are Wayne Bridge, Nigel de Jong and Shay Given, it seems fairly reasonable to assume that the loudmouth in question is Craig Bellamy, who despite a chronic lack of loyalty is renowned for his work-rate and dedication in training.

The mystery player is also reportedly angry that neither Brazilian has spoken to him since he joined the club. This scans with comments the Welsh striker made in December about being disappointed that vocal players Anton Ferdinand and Bobby Zamora had been replaced with silent foreigners like David Di Michele and Diego Tristan at West Ham.

    The Daily Mail. Nuff said. The champions of City -bashing bullshit extraordinaires.

    I think BlueSte has it spot on. Nothing more to be said.

    Not convinced by your argument BlueSte. Wasn’t the Mail’s main man Martin Samuel practically the only person in the press who supported your Kaka bid. And if they were making it up why would they feel the need to keep Bellamy’s identity quiet?

    Can we have some sources for this story or was this stuff made up on a back of a fag packet last night?

    The source is revealed in the first three words of the post mate.

    Or are the City supporters already fed-up with Craig Bellamy?

    No surprises for me. Bellamy’s a poisonous little dwarf who needs a smack in the eye, he’s been trouble for every club he’s played for and will continue to be trouble for ‘City.

    Someone put a collar and leash on the little fucker.
