Bellamy steps down

3rd January 2019, 14:22 by Tom Hill

Cardiff Under-18s coach Craig Bellamy has stepped down from his position after denying allegations that he bullied an academy player.

Bellamy decided to step down on Thursday pending an investigation from the Premier League side.

Reports in the British media claim Cardiff have received a complaint against Bellamy over his alleged treatment of a young English player who has since left the club.

Cardiff are now carrying out their own investigation but Bellamy has strongly denied any of the claims.

"I am aware of the allegations that have been made against me via the media," he said in a statement.

"I understand the need for Cardiff City to undertake a full investigation in response to these allegations — and my own suggestion — I have temporarily removed myself from my coaching position in order to co-operate 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."
