Liverpool ace Bellamy mixed emotions facing Cardiff in Carling Cup final

Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy will have mixed emotions for their Carling Cup final appearance against Cardiff City.

Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy will have mixed emotions for their Carling Cup final appearance against Cardiff City.

Bellamy spent the whole of last season on loan at Cardiff, fulfilling a lifelong dream.

Sunday is bound to be a special occasion.

"It will be a strange situation because it'll be the first time I've ever played against them," he said. "My father is a Cardiff fan and it's the club I used to go to when I was very young.

"I set one ambition to play for them and I was able to do that, and it's funny how football can work out sometimes.

"But I've got to be involved - I might not be on the pitch. We'll see if I'm playing or if I get on.

"It's a great final. Football can sometimes be very unpredictable - I didn't ever look at this or plan to play a cup final against Cardiff. This year it's just happened.
